do I shut power off at the breaker as when I hit the oven off button a minute later the code comes back on and starts beeping again???
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
Do I turn off power at the breaker?????
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 9 years ago
yes shut power off at breaker, there is a test to try and determine which should tell you if its the touch pad or clock, if you can get at the ribbon I mentioned ,unplug ribbon and turn power back on and if it doesn't start beeping and giving you f-7 code its probably the touch pad. be careful not to touch anything or short out any wires, I usually put a screw back in just to hold asm. in place while you test, let me know Bryan

I took the ribbon off and turned power back on and the clock is flashing and no code???? ribbon is still disconnected??
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 9 years ago
okay it sounds like you need the touch pad membrane with it disconected theres no f-7 because the part that was causing problem is disconected,. shut breaker off and plug ribbon back in. turn on and see if it comes back, sometimes it will be alright. go to radio shack and get some electronics cleaner and spray both the ribbon and plug and see if that takes care of it. if cleaning works you may not need to replace touchpad. hope this helps. thanks Bryan . p.s. feedback is appreciated. thanks again

hey glen yeah i would go ahead and clean contacts and ribbon , wont hurt, as a matter of fact it might be bad conection causing your problem , it may come back though, cleaning will help. I think contact cleaner you have will work fine , just make sure its dry before turning on breaker, read contact cleaner instructions for dry time. good luck, if you need me just ask. thanks again Bryan
