The touchpad board is connected to the control board with a flat plastic ribbon connector. Frequently your problem can be corrected by removing the ribbon from its control board connection, and gently burnishing the contacts with a pencil eraser. If that does'nt solve the problem, replace the control board and touchpad board with part number PS2322068, priced at $162.39. You can buy it at

I can't see how to get to this ribbon. What is the method i must use (except turning off power) in oder to get to the contacts for cleanin?

Expert:  John replied 5 years ago.

The end of the ribbon connector strip that plugs into the control board plug should come out, when you pull on it. If it does'nt, you'll have to replace the whole assembly with the part number I posted.

Yes sir! I understand. HOw do I get to the control board? I see know way to remove the number pad(control facing) to get to a ribbon.
Expert:  John replied 5 years ago.

I suggest you go to, enter your model number, and take a look at number 105 on the parts drawing and list. It shows the boards in separate drawings, so

I thought the ribbon could be removed. If it can't, there nothing for it but to replace the whole unit.
