Re: F7 alarm

F7 stands for a faulty touch pad, faulty clock or both. Usually it's the touch pad. Most manufacturers recommend replacing both of the components. First, because they make more money that way, and second, it's the easiest (although more expensive) way to fix this problem. If you'd rather try and save some $$$, you can perform the following test and hopefully identify which of the two components needs to be replaced. The test... Disconnect the power to the oven before performing any repairs. Something triggers the clock to display F7 error code. You can unplug the touch pad from the clock and see if F7 comes back on. If it does, the clock is bad. If it does not, the touch pad is bad. Hope this helps, APP tech

Turned oven to bake it keeps beeping with message "door"

Oven keeps beeping:
As there is no reprogramming of most control boards try this, disconnect the power and wait 30 seconds and then reconnecting the power.

If it's an "F1" fault code this generally implies an electronic oven control (EOC) failure. Disconnect the power, wait 30 seconds or longer and then reapply power. If "F1" returns upon power-up, replace the electronic oven control.
The oven control can be accessed and replaced from the rear of the control panel.

NOTE:Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the console.
If its an F2 ERROR CODE, The F2 error indicates an open circuit in the oven temperature probe.

Your range has a resettable thermostat in series with the oven temperature probe. If this thermostat opens the clock will display F2 and the oven won't heat.
You can reset the thermostat by pushing in the reset button on top of the thermostat.
Some ovens have an alarm that will beep continuously every six seconds to alert you that the oven is still on. Usually, a kitchen timer that you have set will cause the beeping, but occasionally it can be an error with the oven's settings. If it is the kitchen timer, you can simply push the "Kitchen Timer On/Off" button to end the continuous beeping. If that does not stop the beeping, it is probably beeping due to an error. You can turn the continuous beeping off but you may still need to troubleshoot the issue that is causing the beeping noise.

My top oven is displaying some kind of error message. First it was F3, now it is F2. a loud ding noise comes with it. Help!!!

I get this, and F7 sometimes, especially after self-cleaning. Was told by a repairman to turn off the power, the breaker in electrical box and leave off. I usually leave off for anywhere from 5 hours to the next morning and then flip the breaker back on. Then it is fine. Happened to me 4 days before Thanksgiving too!

We had a power outage and when the electricity was restored the oven is displaying an F1 and F7 code and is beeping the alarm, how do i stop this?

Hello, the F1 error code means internal logic failure (monitoring function) it sounds alarm and inhibit cook mode You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC)

F7 error code means the function key shorted for over 16 seconds, check for something pressing a key or preventing normal release of the key. You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC) if other component check normal.

I have to turm the oven off at the braker box. it comes on by itself. when I turn it on to cook it will not stay on gos off and beeps. Shows C7 or F7

This is usually a keypad stuck key error, usually caused by a bad keypad or sometimes caused by your control board.
F7 usually means a stuck key on the keypad. I've also seen it caused by a greasey buildup on the keypad connector into the control board. Try pressing each button on the keypad followed by cancel. See if the buttons are registering with the control - should get a beep or some function (execpt up/down buttons need a cook or time function enabled first). If one of the buttons seems inoperative it may be stuck, in which case you probably need a new keypad.

Double oven. Top is digital. It has started

You have a stuck keypad or a bad electronic oven control. Try pressing all buttons at random several times each to unstick a faulty pad. If that does not work the EOC must be replaced.

You don't say what type of GE oven this is so I will advise the following;

On a GE range oven F7 indicates either a function pad button is stuck or the clock on the oven is malfunctioning

On the 99 Range oven F7 indicates a shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch or a shorted control or connector

On the GE XL44 Self Clean Oven F7 is Stuck keypad or control relay malfunction

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank you.

Alarm on NEFF U1721

It might be the volume control.

Try pressing the minus button a few times. The loudness should cycle between low, medium and high.

F7 message with beeping

The F7 represents a shorted matrix or start key. To determine whether it's the key panel or control itself, disconnect the ribbon cable of the key panel that goes to the control and power the oven up. If the F7 does not come back, it's the key panel, if it comes back, it's the control..
