Question about Kenmore 30169 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Oven will not come on, no power, when it does work it will make a bleeping sound and blink F7

The oven I have isn't working. It doesn't come on. This is the first time this has ever happened. I've at this residence for 6 years. The only problems we would have is it would make a beeping sound and blink F7. We don't know what F7 means. How we would get to stop is by cutting the power, that means would go to the circuit breaker and cut the power off to the oven. I would like to know why it is working anymore and what do I need to do to get to work.

Check the power to the oven, maybe a bad breaker.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F7 on your Kenmore means that the keypad is shorted or stuck and to resolve this issue you’ll have to replace the electronic range control (ERC). Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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.

Oven emitted black smoke and F7 beeping on display

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.

Ge wall oven display says F7

Your problem is most likely caused by a short between sections of the ribbon cable between the touchpanel and the electronic control. The solution is to insert a slip of paper between the sections where it exits the touch panel. See the attached photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, insert slips of paper on either side of the ribbon cable as well. CAUTION: Be certain to turn off the power to the oven before you poke your fingers in and around the touchpanel. My solution has worked for hundreds of folks. Don't worry about the paper burning. If you have questions, contact me at
