Are your oven buttons not working? Is your Samsung, GE, or LG Range oven touchpad button unresponsive? 

Key Takeaway

Oven buttons not working may indicate electrical issues, such as a faulty control panel or wiring.
Dirt or moisture buildup can also cause malfunction.
Try cleaning the buttons or resetting the oven to troubleshoot.
Consult a professional if issues persist for proper diagnosis and repair.

In that case, you might be experiencing one of the below-highlighted issues: 

In most cases, hard resetting the oven solves the problem. Otherwise, need to inspect the touchpad/panel, control board, fuses, thermostat, and wiring to verify which one went wrong.

Is it too complicated? Don’t worry; this post will explain everything in detail to make it understandable for you. So, keep reading!


No Buttons Are Working Except the “Clear/Cancel/Off” Button!

You may occasionally notice that as you try to turn the oven on to cook or warm up the food, none of the buttons are working anymore except the Clear/Cancel/Off button.

Verify the following:

  • Is the oven clock displaying when the buttons aren’t responding?
  • When you press the oven buttons does any of them make a “Beep” sound?

Ensure that the lock button is disabled. Based on the specific model you have; you may also press the lock button for 3 seconds to unlock it.

Otherwise, you might be having one of these:

  • An electronic glitch is preventing the control penal and Keypad from synchronizing correctly
  • Your oven touchpad must be sorted and sense a stuck or shorted key.

Flip the main circuit breaker off and wait for at least 2-3 minutes before turning it back. This will reset the control panel and fix the glitch issue.

If it doesn’t work, you need to replace the oven touchpad.


The Power Light Comes On, But the Display and Buttons Won’t Respond!

You may also see that the oven power light comes on, but the display and buttons on your oven are not working.

First, hard reset your oven by shutting off the circuit breaker and wait for 5 minutes. Then, turn the breaker on.

Check and if the problem persists, contact a qualified technician.


No “O” Blinking on The Display and No Response When Pressing The “Element Size” Button!

When your electric range oven buttons are not working, verify these:

  1. Do you see no “O” blinking on the display and no response from the oven as you press the “Element Size”?
  2. Can you hear any ringing or beeping sound as you click that button?

First, make sure the “Lock/Child Lock” feature is not turned on.

Click the “Element Size” button correctly by pressing it within its square shape.

If you’re pressing it within the square shape, you must hear a ringing or beeping sound immediately.

But if you don’t hear it, the issue can be related to the other internal elements of the machine. In that case, you need to contact a qualified technician.


No “O” Number Blinking on The Display and No Response When You Click The “Select” Button!

If the “Select” button on your electric range oven does not respond, there must be a temp glitch, an issue with the selector switch, the touchpad itself, or the oven control panel.

If “0” isn’t blinking on your oven display as you press the “Select” button, it might be due to:

  • the electronic oven controls were not correctly chosen, or 
  • the “Start” button was not pressed.

Reboot the electronic control board by shutting off the oven’s circuit breaker for 3 minutes then restoring power.

Turn on your Electric Range and press the “Element Size” button before selecting the heating power button.

Choose the burner on which you wish to cook and press the “Element Size.”

Wait until you see the “0” number blinking on the oven display, and then press the “Select.”

If the button is still unresponsive, contact the brand’s customer service for assistance or request a repair service.


Only the “Power” and “Child Lock” buttons Are Working!

If only the “Power” and “Child Lock” buttons are working, it could be that the oven’s control panel is locked. 

When the Child Lock feature is activated, it prevents accidental button presses and protects children from getting burned.

If a small red light blinks on top of the “Lock/Child Lock” button when you press the “Element Size,” it means the lock function is on.

Press and hold the “Lock/Child Lock” for at least 3 seconds to unlock the function.

Here are some reference techniques to turn the child lock off based on different oven model and their touchpad setup:

  • Press and hold those two together for 2 seconds until you hear a signal sound, and the “SAFE” indicator sign appears on the oven display.
  • Press and hold those two symbols together for 2 seconds until you hear the sound, and the “SAFE” appears.
  • Press and hold those two buttons together for 2 seconds until you hear a signal sound, and the “Loc” appears.

Or, try to disconnect the power cord and reconnect it after a few seconds.


Only The “Clear/Off/Cancel” Button Makes the Beep Sound or the “Touchpad” Is Completely Unresponsive!

Sometimes the oven control panel may start to act up after getting accidentally locked up. This may cause none of the buttons to work except the clear/off (It may be labeled as the Cancel button on some models.)

Try pressing and holding “9” and “0” simultaneously for 5 seconds. 

Or, shut the circuit breaker off to the oven for 5 minutes. After that, turn on the power and check again. 

If the problem persists, the touch control panel must have failed, and you need to replace it.

Or you can try this DIY heck to fix your unresponsive oven touchpad:


The Oven Buttons Are Not Working and the C-D0 Code Is Showing on Display!

When oven buttons become unresponsive, users may see an error code such as “C-D0” flash on the display.

This code typically indicates that the unit assumes a touchpad key was pressed longer than usual (more than 9 seconds) and the key has become stuck.

Turn off the breaker for at least 3-5 minutes and turn it on again. 

Or, take a hair dryer or something similar to lightly warm up your oven touchpad and gently use your fingers to rub it outwards. 

This may drive the old connection to re-flow. If this trick also fails, replace the touchpad.

People May Also Ask:

Why are my oven buttons not responding?

There can be various reasons for this failure. Common reasons include power outages, dirt and grime build-up, circuit malfunctions, and more.

Can I still use my oven if the buttons are not working?

It depends. If only one button has failed, you may still use the oven by manually adjusting the temperature and time settings. However, if essential buttons, such as power, are not working, you may need to call a professional technician to get the oven up and running.

My oven buttons aren’t working after a self-clean cycle. What do I do?

The high temperatures used during the self-clean cycle can cause damage to the control panel, and result in the oven buttons not working. In this case, you may need to replace the control panel.
