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.
After cleaning our oven, some of the buttons work about half of the time. But they are all used for the oven. The buttons are: bake broil, 5, 6, 7, and 8. I got mad at it one day and hit the panel and they all started working. But then the next time, they wouldn't work again. Would this panel fix the problem?
Answer Hello James,
This sounds more like a poor electrical connection than a failed part. I would open the control panel, WITH THE POWER TURNED OFF, and use a dry pencil eraser to clean the ribbon cable that connects the control panel to the control board. It is made permanently to the panel, but plugs onto the board. When you clean the ribbon cable connections, you should rub the ribbon with the eraser only in the direction toward the end that you just unplugged. Do not rub side to side at all and rubbing back toward the panel can also cause damage to the ribbons' traces. If this doesn't correct the issue, the issue will most likely be in the control board and not the panel.
