The power went out the other day and now the keypad does not work properly. For instance when you try to reset the clock the numbers on the keypad do not work, as well as when you try to enter a baking temp.

Mine has done the same thing. I had been shutting off the circuit breaker and that works for a while. It was under warranty so I had the tech replace the microprocessor board. He had seen issues like this in the past. Now, 8 months later it is doing it again. It locks up the panel so you do not have any control of anything. It seems to happen when baking at high temps i.e. 450 and above. Since it is still under warranty I will have the microprocessor replaced again. I believe they may have design issues with thier processor or heat related issues that could be causing this problem.

Hello Dana, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire oven is displaying an error code of "F8" and your keypad is not working properly. An "F8" error stands for runaway temperature (overheating). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes.
If that does not help correct your issue then you could have a problem with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
Sounds like there may have been a power failure or problem with the voltage when you were using this or before you did. Try shutting off the breaker for 5 minutes, turn it back on. This will reset the board in the oven. Then see if it works. If it still is defective, the voltage 'surge' may have destroyed the board. You may be able to turn it in to your insurance if that is the case, as from a storm that took out the oven when it hit and the power went out and then came back on. A clue is the keypad lights go dim and brighter then dim again.
A qualified technician needs to troubleshoot the unit and determine if the bubble-keypad has broken or the control board that 'controls' it. The control board would be my guess, and would also cost the most.
Normally when a power surge lands a direct hit on a non protected circuit board, it will usually fry it completely. you can confirm this by shutting down the power for 5 minutes. if the control doesn't respond after the 5 minutes of no power, this will confirm circuitfailure due to the surge and, you will need to replace the board in this case.
It sounds like this is a common occurance among GE ovens.
Shut off the power at the box, then remove faceplate then remove the keypad.
after doing so, remove it from connector, and clean pins with an eraser.
Make sure the terminals are clean of debris, and check for a reset button on the back of the keypad.
I hope this helped you out.
You said, After coming on and preheating Saturday, the upper oven went off and
the lower wouldn't work either. Control paned was blank, but interior
lights were on and pushing control paned buttons resulted in beeps.
Turned off breaker for 5 minutes to reset and upon retry, the fan came
on for maybe 5 seconds and then went off. Nothing else changed. Any
You say the ovens went on and then later cut off. Does the clean mode work? Try the clean mode and see if it goes on. Assuming it will clean!
Since the Range will
clean you have confirmation that the proper power is reaching the
range. It also verifies that the elements are in working condition. You
will need to check the high temperature limit switch and the door latch
mechanism. If either of these is defective, the bake and broil function
will not operate properly Let me know how it goes. Waiting your response. Huuum
The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...
Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused. You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.
If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display. This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.
Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

Mobley, F2-E6 code is cancel key drive line open. The tech sheet I have on this recommends reseating the keypad connector. It then states to press cancel. If the error comes back within 60 seconds replace the keypad....Catriver..post back.
