If it’s new, there’s most likely shipping pieces holding shelves in place. Remove them.

I had the same problem. The cause is the digital display is not communicating with the motherboard. What had happened in my case is the plug connection between the door's digital display and the motherboard had become unplugged. The wire running from the motherboard runs below the fridge, and connects via plug located along the bottom of the fridge below the freezer door, connecting to the wire running from the display to the bottom of the freezer door. I just reconnected it and that reset the display. Glad for it too, I thought I needed a new $130 motherboard! Hope this helped!

Sounds like control panel is locked or in demo mode or in Sabbath mode. If you have your owners manual it should explain how to get out of that

Verify diode rectifier condition for magnetron. Always discharge capacitor with a 500 ohm resistor after removing power. It can stop your heart.
