Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So F71 does mean that your touchpad is failing or one of the buttons is sticking. Try to unplug the oven and use a hair dryer to heat up the touchpad. Rub the buttons with your thumb in case one of them is sticking and then let the unit cool down. Plug the oven back in and if you still get an F71 error, the only thing you can do is replace the touchpad.
