The F7 error code indicates that one or more potentiometers (burner switches) are not connected properly or that you have one or more failed potentiometers.
The specific details of this failure code are provided in the second image below.
This is an excerpt from the technical information for this range.
Normally, a service technician would be needed to conduct the troubleshooting and diagnosis for this type of failure.
If you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely unplug the range and access these potentiometers (54 in the third image example) you may be able to check for loose or broken wires that could be causing this code.
If no loose wires are found, then you will likely need to have a technician find and replace a failed potentiometer.

Oven beeps and shows F7.


Hello,

These codes mean that the oven's electronic control has detected a condition it needs to check. When you see a code, follow these steps:
  • Press "Stop/Clear" to clear the display and stop the beeping.
  • Reprogram the oven.
  • If the code still displays, turn off the power to the oven at your breaker box and wait five minutes before turning it back on

thanks.

''F7'' Error Code


HI. This is the result of a failed function key. This is an integrated part of the main control board. Unfortunately, this is not repairable, and the main control board will need to be replaced, asap.

The oven is showing F7 and is beeping. if i push clear it stops for a little bit then starts again


Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be canceled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.

The F7 code appears with a beeping noise. How do I turn off the beep for good.... selecting clear/off only works for a few seconds


Hi,

Well, F7 error code occures due to
A = Function pad button stuck or 
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver.
REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order.

Thanks

Oven shows F7 error problem with irritating beeping sound


F7 stuck keypad
Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on.
Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.

Kenmore electric built-in oven control panel beeping


Try this first!
The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!

Kenmore electric built-in oven control panel beeping


We had the same problem. F7 error code and beeping. We turned off at the breaker- left it off for hours turned it back on and still f7 and beeping. We call repairman to come out and he removed the cover on control panel (3 screws on bottom of controll panel and it pops off). He unplugged the ribbon keypad connection - Cleaned the ends with a pencil eraser and said it is fixed and we would not have a problem.

Well, that was a fast way to spend 60 bucks but it has been a week and the oven has been great. No more beeps or error codes. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO IT YOURSELF!
