Have to push start button(pad) several times before anything will enter..sometimes won't work for days so we can't uses oven help..have Christmas cooking to do..what part and number do you think we need?
The most likely cause for the unit to not accept commands would be a faulty keypad 383EW1N006F. You could pull the ribbon harness from the control board and check to make sure that the end does not have corrosion on it. If it does then clean with a pencil eraser. If the problem continues then replace the keypad.
I am getting an f1 alert and the keys don't work. I disconnected the blue ribbon and the code is not coming back. I am assuming I need to replace the keypad : control board. Correct?
The F1 error code indicates an open sensor. You will want to check the resistance value of the oven sensor. The sensor value should read at 1090 ohms. If not at the proper ohms it will need to be replaced. If the sensor checks ok then check the continuity of the sensor wire back to the control board. If the wire has continuity then replaced the control board.
