Electronic Control Panel Problem

Over the years, our oven controls (rubber push buttons activating an electronic control panel behind a glass front) have become more difficult to use. Initially, this happened only during the winter when a bit of cold air came down the exhaust duct. Now, it's a daily problem. Most recently, I've had some success removing the rubber buttons and touching the surface of the control panel with a finger. Now,even that's not working. I almost abandoned my plans to use the oven today until repeated prodding of the control panel with an eraser at the end of a pencil finally worked. What options do we have? Although almost 12 years old, the appliance is otherwise in excellent shape and we'd prefer not to replace it.

Anyone else experiencing this problem might want to try the following. We removed all affected rubber push buttons, exposing the electronic printed circuit panel behind the protective glass. We sprayed a soft rag with "M.G. Chemicals Heavy Duty Flux Remover" and pushed it in each opening in the glass panel, twisting it to clean the circuit panel behind each push button. We then cleaned the back side of each rubber push button with the same flux remover chemical. Since then, the push buttons require the slightest touch to activate. Surprisingly, when pressed firmly they don't work as consistently. We're hoping this is a lasting solution.

Lg direct drive start button is not work" what's problem in machine


Take off the control panel. There is a little plastic arm behind the start button that may be worn down on the end and may not be making contact with the electronic button underneath.
To access the control panel on the WD14700RD:
  1. Disconnect the unit from power and water
  2. Remove the top: take off two screws at the back, push it backwards one inch and lift it off
  3. Take out the soap tray and remove two screws on the soap tray compartment.
  4. Remove the control panel: push down on the two arms on top of it so that it can pop out, and pull it out at the top and then lift it off the bottom hooks. Pull it out a little from the machine, about an inch.
  5. Remove the front plate from the control panel: there are 7 screws behind it. Rotate the control panel up or down in order to access the screws behind
  6. Now that the front plate of the control panel is loose, identify the arm of the button that has stopped working. Wrap a small amount (2-3 times around) of electrical or plumbers tape on the very end of the plastic arm. Or if there is a nib instead of an arm, a small dab of epoxy resin allowed to harden does the trick.
  7. Refit the control panel and test the button now works.
  8. Reassemble the control panel, top, and turn on water and power.
  9. Test once again.
And that's it! All you need is a screwdriver and some tape. Too easy. Hope the information helps out.

Getting F7 code on a ge profile performance oven , oven light will not turn off and control panel will not respone.....beeps when I push CLEAR OFF button.


F7 A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
Try gliding your finger flat across the keypad rapidly and see if you can unstick the key / touch pad. Usually once this code appears it will repeat.

On self cleaning ovens this is the service check:

Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.

Thanks for using FixYa!

1999 subaru legacy vent is stuck on defrost


This sounds like the control panel. 90% of the time something gets spilled on the control panel from the cup holders right above, The buttons get gummed up and no longer push the switches behind the button. remove the control panel and dissassemble it, soak the non electronic parts in hot water with light soap, problem solved, My 98 Outback had the same problem.
