Our oven touchpad doesn't work -- the CLEAR/OFF button beeps, but nothing else does even that. The stovetop works just fine. If I persist in trying to get the buttons to work, eventually I get an F1 code and a steady tone until I turn off the breaker.
Sometimes, it will come back to life if I turn off the breaker and leave it off for a while before turning it back on, but now that doesn't even work.
We've had it apart, and there's no sign of any damage to the circuit boards -- no burns, etc. -- and no obvious loose connections. If the touchpad module has to be replaced, do you know how much it would cost? In other words, would it be worth fixing a 13-year-old stove, or should we just replace it?
Sometimes it may just be a build up grease and dirt on the pad over a period of time.try taking it apart as much as possible and cleaning it with some type of spirits and the clean with some eucalyptus oil as both of these have capabilities of breaking down oils and fat.

The F7 error code means that a key on the touchpad has shorted and the touchpad needs to be replaced... sometimes it's a electronic anaomily, since you have pushed Clear/off and the F7 returns it surly means that touchpad is bad.
I held down the clear button for three seconds, it unlocked but still showed the lock button lit. It began beeping over and over. I opened the door and pressed the clear button again for three seconds. It stopped and the oven works just fine now. In fact, I used it right after I got it cleared out.
Most likley you have a bad touchpad. Most times its a key that is stuck and there is nothing much you can do except replace the touchpad control. It is a common problem with all electronic ranges. If the range is 13 years old I would thik about replaceing it. Good luck
