I have a built in GE Profile True Temp electric wall oven. It periodically shuts down, giving "F7" error code. Using great info found on sight, I have always diagnosed corroded ribbon connector, and cleaning connector with eraser has always solved problem.

Now for about 4th time I have same problem, again diagnosed ribbon connector, but cleaning did not solve problem. Looking carefully at terminal end of connector, I can see that several of the conductive strips have actually been worn away by my rubbing them.

(1) Are ribbon connectors available separately? As far as I can tell, the connector is only available as part of the the touchpad unit.

(2) Assuming I have to replace the touchpad unit now, is there some way I can protect the ribbon connector from corrosion? I do the occasional electronic project, and I have seen products in my electronics parts catalogs, usually sprays, which are supposed to protect connections against corrosion. Any advice about trying this on the ribbon connector?

I am not happy about such an expensive product which self-destructs through routine maintenance required by its own design. Oven is about 3 years old, and, unfortunately, off warranty.

Any good electronics supply house should carry them.
