Display intermittant for few weeks, now no display or oven control
My display was not functioning a few weeks ago. After pushing a few buttons or turning on a burner, then the display would lite up and allow me to use the oven, clock, timer, etc.
However nowadays I have no display at all, not even after the other tricks that worked before; now I have no display, clock, timer, or oven control... I'm not sure if it's simple wiring or maybe I need a new control panel/ display assembly. I would hate to spend $100+ on the display assembly when only a wire is bad.
Should I buy the repair manual and/ or display? Please help. Any advice is appreciated.

Real easy trouble shoot, check the wiring diagram out and find where the line voltage goes into the board. if you have voltage to the board and no display it is very likely a bad board also make sure you have ground pathway from the board. you can have voltage to the board but if no ground pathway then the board will not work. a cheapo meter from sears etc. will work

it's the control panel behind that touchpad item. and it's not too difficult, just time consuming. My recommend is to grab a service manual online(usually around 20.00) which will provide good step by step,and also parts list.
spares? well, that's a good question. Until you have that part number, and the best way is to eyeball the one that's in side your unit(no offense to the printers, but mistakes can happen with manuals).
then you'll find out what it's like to be truly handy, eh?
Flashing F1 clearly indicates a problem in the electronic control, its keypad (which may only be available with the control) or sometimes even the oven sensor. The first thing you can try is disconnecting the appliance from power for several minutes to see if that clears the problem. If not, some investigating will likely be necessary. However, a defective oven temperature sensor can also sometimes trigger the same F-1 error to display. It is also not inconceivable that an improperly grounded or polarized power supply to the range could also cause intermittent failures of the electronic control. Checking the power supply should usually be done as a matter of course during testing. Unfortunately, it will likely be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause unless the range can be tested *at the time of failure*. Otherwise just replacing the possible suspect components may need to be done to see if they correct the condition.
Make sure there is proper electrical power going to range. Then check your kitcen circuit breakers or fuse box in your house, then reset the oven controls.
LOL look what i found, a CHILD LOCKOUT FUNCTION-- check this out
TO SET CHILD LOCKOUT
Press and hold the COOK MIN/HR and STOP TIME buttons until indicator word OFF appears in the
display (approximately 6 seconds).
TO CANCEL THE CHILD LOCKOUT
Press and Hold the COOK MIN/HR and STOP TIME buttons until indicator word OFF disappears
from the display (approximately 6 seconds). Mode selections will now be available on the control panel.
looks like someones could have been playing with the buttons and locked you out..
Let me know what happen.........................please rate this
The time of day does not display on my electronic oven control. If I
push the CLOCK pad on the control panel the time will display for a few
seconds and then it goes blank again.
On many ranges with electronic controls the time
of day display can by turned off or on by holding the CLOCK keypad down
for 15 seconds. Push and hold the CLOCK keypad. The time will
appear for a few seconds, and then disappear and finally it will
reappear and beep. Release the keypad and the time should continue to
display. Follow this same procedure to turn the time display off.
