If you look on magellan website it states they no longer have or support replacement parts for older gps models.
You can find an explorist for parts on ebay.
I own a explorist 100, 400, 500. I believe the key pads are all the same. If you can not find one, I will sell you the pad from the explorist 100 for 30 dollars plus shipping.

The keys have frozen and i can not get it to start up again

You have to dissamble the fax machine front panel keys, then check if the membrane rubber is still good, clean the pressure pad and the pcb copper with an alcohol, a dirt will cause that trouble. Resolder all the keypad.
It still has the same trouble then the front panel keypad pcb board is need to be replace.
I hope I help you to your problem.

Repairing an (F2 E0 or F2 E1 error code) Failed Whirlpool Builtin Oven Keypad...

A replacement touchpad is now available from Ledgestone Technologies to replace various membrane keypad switches that are not available from the OEM.
These are in stock and can be shipped today from fixyourboard.
Find the full list of applicable models here:
Introducing the Ledgestone Technologies Touchpad
Step 1. Remove Original Plastic Bezel

You are going to re-use the original plastic bezel. Remove the panel from your oven that contains the keypad and control board. Uplug the keypad from the control board. Remove the control board from the panel (4 screws).




Step 2. Remove Original Touchpad Membrane
With a heat gun, lightly heat the original keypad from the back of the panel. This will soften the adhesive. Gently but firmly push the old keypad off the bezel by pushing from the back of the panel on the keypad window. Carefully remove the original keypad membrane element. Most of the original adhesive should pull off with the keypad. Rub off any remaining adhesive.

Step 3. Install New Ledgestone Touchpad
Remove adhesive backing paper from the Ledgestone Technologies KP1308A1 Replacement Touchpad Membrane. Align and adhere new touchpad to recess in plastic bezel. Below are examples of black on black and gray on white. Gray also looks good on bisque or almond.



Step 4. Re-install Bezel on Oven
Re-attach control board to bezel, plug-in new keypad. Re-attach bezel to oven frame. Done!

I have a Dacor double oven that gives a error message of F0 and then shuts itself off.I don't have the manual so I don't know what this error code means or how to fix it.HELP!

F0 means shorted keypad or stuck key on keypad.
Solution: The membrane aka keypad has to be replaced.
There's a slight chance that the ERC aka oven controller is acting up also.
So safest bet replace both, ERC and membrane.

After cleaning oven now it shows F 3 and will not work

F3 on a GE means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

There are two ways to fix this model, either replace the membrane keypad which is a lot of work (handy guide with pictures) or to replace the complete controller.

It's probably not going to be economical even to repair it yourself if you or a friend want to. It depends on the model:


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

I looked up parts prices for the -02 verison.

ref # 38 part number WB27X10554 membrane keypad $69.71 here (compared to $112.50 direct from GE!)

ref # 42 part number WB07X11076 complete controller assembly $131.01 here (compared to $196.25 direct from GE!)

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Replacement parts for Magellan eXplorist GPS

You need to be brave, but it is pretty simlple. Basically you are going to clean the rubber keypad and circuit board contacts. These contacts develop a film over time that needs to be removed. That is the main reason telephone and remote control keypads fail over time.

1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove 5 screws holding the bady together and separate the backplate from the main body.
3. Now carefully lift the circuit board out of the main body. Do not disconnect anything, but be careful with the rubber seal that fits between the back and front plates.
4. With the circuit board laying flat on your work surface, remove the rubber keypad. It is held in place over the joystick. Carefully lift it off the joystick and set it aside.
5. Use a clean pencil eraser and lightly rub the contacts on the circuit board. Do the same thing on the keypad by pushing the little knobs out where you can rub them. Blow away the dust.
6. Use a Q-tip with some alcohol to clean the contacts on the curcuit board and on the keypad.
7. When the alcohol is dry, put everything back together in the opposite order.

This should be good enough, but if it does not solve the issue, then buy a rubber keypad repair kit (an example is at and try again.

Good luck.
