Certain press buttons on control panel not working
We recently purchased a used Frigidaire oven and it worked fine. Just the other day, we noticed that the number panel quit working...not all the numbers, just the number 1, the number 4, the number 7 and also the "bake" button. We are thinking that, since the numbers and bake button are all in a row, like this:
We're thinking it must be an issue with that fuse or the plug that goes to that line of numbers because everything else works fine (all the other numbers and the burners themselves work great). Can you give me a clue as to if this is something we can fix ourselves? Thanks for any info. you can give's much appreciated.

I cannot find any info on the given model number.
Please check it.

If the unit uses a keypad that is hooked to a control board you may want to try the following:

Connector Cleaning / Checking
Unplug the unit
Open it up
Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the control board.
Clean the edge connector.
If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink eraser as it is too abrasive.
Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying glass helps here.
Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
Reconnect everything and give it a try.
