I tried to use the oven and the touchpad won't work properly. No error code. Here are the keys that respond:

Clean. But I can't actually start the clean function.
Cancel.
Timer. But only with the 4, 5, 6 keys.
4, but nothing happens
5, but nothing happens
6, but nothing happens
Favorite, but nothing happens.

I tried holding down the Cancel key for five seconds.
I tried holding down the Cancel and Clock key for five seconds.

I tried resetting the fuse breaker.

This happened once before after a power outage. Holding some keys I can't remember now fixed it then. No key combination worked this time, however.

What's going on?

It works again.

So....I left the breaker off all night. Turned it on this morning. It is working flawlessly again.

Any ideas what's going on here? I don't want to replace the touchpad if I don't have to...

It did come back to haunt me! Lately, turning it on and off at the breaker doesn't really help. When I do get it "reset" and on, I can set it to bake at 350 for example. But then some functions may not work, like turning off the light. Or if I want to switch from baking to broiler, I can't. The touchpad becomes unresponsive again.

No error message shown.

But the oven works fine as far as heating and cooling down. So, do I need to replace the control panel or the board behind it? Thanks.

The touchpad worked great. And then a few months later, the oven has no heat. Touchpad still seems to work fine. I had a repair tech come by and he said I have a bad board. I can't seem to find the board for this particular model - any advice?

Thanks.
