I have a Maytag Gemini model MER6770AAB and have been getting error code F1-1 intermittently. The error can occur while using the upper oven, the lower oven, the stove top, or most strangely, when NOT USED ALL DAY. If I cancel the error, sometimes I can resume using the oven(if I have been using it), most of the time it will come back withing a few minutes. The oddest time it flashes is when nothing on the stove or oven has been used at all(since the day before).

I have ruled out the upper and lower temperature sensors, as I have put an ohm meter on them both and they are within specs at cold oven temp.

This leads me to the clock control. My wife uses windex to clean the touch screen and I have read this can degrade the membrane causing it to short out. I have tried disconnecting the ribbon cables and hooking up my fluke to various endpoints on the ribbon cable while pushing the touch screen to tell what is working but I do not have a schematic to know which button would be where on the ribbon cable. So my questions are these:

1. Can I replace JUST the clock overlay to fix this problem?
2. Could it be a sticky relay that can be replaced on the control board itself?
3. Anything else I may have missed checking?
4. If I have to replace the clock control do I also need to replace the overlay?

Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

I'm afraid that those symtoms are quite typical of a control failure, the overlay/touchpad is part of the control
