We're being told that our only choice is to dump this oven and get a new one. What I have a big problem with is, everything seems to work fine on the oven! I can't believe we're gonna have to spend $2-3k for a new oven, when the only issue is the connection between the keypad and the control board! I'm an IT guy, I undestand computer hardware, and this keypad isn't "broken", it still works fine for setting the time, setting a timer, putting in a temperature, etc.
So I'm wondering if there's ANYTHING I can do to save this oven? Seems like an unbelievable waste to toss it because of this error code. Is there any way to bypass the error? Can anything be done? Can I replace a ribbon cable or something?
Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it!

Try contacting Bruce at Fixyourboard.com and see if he can rebuild the touchpanel for you.

... we put the oven into self-cleaning mode
this white part should work, but it's $ 562
(return for any reason, less shipping)
The black part may be still available somewhere, but may not be returnable
It may be a bad Touch-panel, OR the (bad?) Controller isn't "seeing" the (good?) Touch-panel.
Rule # 1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.
Rule # 2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule # 1.
Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more.
That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.
