Question about GE Profile JT910SASS Electric Single Oven
I have the dreaded F7 code on my GE Profile single oven. I see listed under your name you have the magic solution! Can you share some help? Thank you so much! Kathryn
Hi Kathryn, I believe that I have already sent you my solution via another route. Hope you received it. Basicaly for anyone else with this problem, it is caused by a short circuit envolving the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. The solution varies slightly depending on whether you have a metal or plastic touch panel. If you have a plastic touch panel,you need to add some extra insulation between the two pieces of ribbon cable in the slot where it exits the touchpanel. You need to slip it down as far into the slot as it will go. A piece of paper, a piece of file card, a thin piece of mylar will all work just fine. If you have a metal touchpanel, you need to insulate the edges of the slot as well with paper or mylar. Insulate both edges. If you don't have two sections to the ribbon cable, obviously you can't put insulation between the sections. If you have a plastic touch panel and only one section to the ribbon, you are out of luck. There is nothing you can do except to purchase a new touch panel. Cleaning the contacts is a myth. It doesn't help. Hope this helps. Please let me know your results. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Regards, Charlie

I have GE Profile Wall Oven. I had F7 error too.
First time it shows, turning off power to owen worked fine.
It showed up a couple times and now turning off power didn't work.
And the touch panel stop functioning altogether.
I was scepticle about the solutions offered here.
But I gave it a try anyway. What do I have to lose, I can't even turn the oven light on.
1 - Added paper insulations on ribbon cable.
2 - Cleaned ribbon cable connector using a pink erasor. :)
IT WORKED like a charm. F7 error went away. Touch pad working like before!
BTW, I didnt' even disconnect copper wires to detach from the oven.
Worked on it while it was hanging. (turn off the power to the oven first, ok?)
Saved some time and avoid the risk of wrong reconnect.
THANKS to Charlie solution and Powerman pics.

I inserted the paper and cleaned the connectors with an eraser. However, i felt that ultimately the ribbon cable was not properly seated in the connection to the big circuit board. When i re-assembled it the ribbon cable went much deeper into the socket then i originally found it. My oven is fixed and working properly now. Thanks for everyone's help.
The hardest part is reattaching the face bezzle. I can't get the two pegs on the top corners to catch and make it flush. Any tips on this?

Easy fix: Just carefully disconnect the ribbon from the slot, get a pensil eraser and use it on both side of the contacts, slide it back in and you are set.
