Question about Ovens
SOURCE: F7 error message on GE oven
Send an e-mail to Charlie at firstname.lastname@example.org for a fix-it that you can try. He explains a possible solution fully with his 'The Dreaded "F7" Error' solution. I actually found his information on another website when I did a web search for "GE Profile Oven F7 Issue". I sent an e-mail to him and he replied with free fix-it information. I am not a repair person myself, but, his instructions are very clear and simple to follow. I did the fix-it at no cost in approximately 10 minutes and it has solved my problem so far.
My oven is also a JT950 and the builder installed it in our home back in 2000. Our F7 issue started about 2 years ago. For a few months, "clearing" the panel and/or shutting the oven off at the breaker panel would temporarily solve the problem. About 1 1/2 year ago, however, the F7 would come on and continually beep. A repairman looked at the oven and replaced the control panel at a cost of $600 (ugh...). That solved the problem until a month ago when the F7 continuous beeping began again. There was no way I was going to pay another $600. for "temporary" repair and I was thinking of replacing the oven. Luckily, I came across the above-mentioned fix-it information and took a chance by following the simple instructions provided.

This is a shorted touch pad. replace the touch pad or, if the touch pad is incorporated within the control board, replace the entire oven control board.

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.
