GE JT912-30 single wall oven "help" with F7 - F0 error
I started with a F7 error message. This is what I have done
I turned power off at the circuit breaker removed ribbon cable, put in index card both sides of ribbon cable. Also, cleaned ribbon cable with eraser. Reinserted ribbon cable to ERC board. Flipped circuitbreaker several times to shock sysem. No good results F7 still reappears.
Tried to determine if touch membrane panel or ERC board. With power on disconnected ribbon cable F7 remained off but after several minutes an F0 error message came on. Is that because of the detached ribbon cable? Can I assume since the F7 did not come on the failure is in the membrane touch panel and not the ERC board? Your help is appreciated.

I have a double oven GE Profile. The error message FO appeared. I shut off the circuit breaker for 30 minutes or more and the oven works but without warning FO reappears. FO message means there is short in the clear Off touch button. The only solution replace the complete panel. My cost delivered $328. Ouch!

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F7 on your GE oven 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.
F0 - F1 - F7
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.
If your appliance is newer than 1996 F0 error
code is a stuck key pad .
To verify turn off power and access the
control panel and remove the ribbon connector that goes from key pad to
control board .
Now restore power.
If the F0 code goes away you'll have
to replace the key pad .
If it stays it means the control board is bad. Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
I had the same FO error. It turned out that the ribbon cable from the front panel was not making good contact where it mated with the circuit board. Remove ribbon cable and clean contacts on ribbon cable. Replace cable and problem should resolve.
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. Good Luck!! Thanks
The F7 is intended to indicate a stuck START key. However, a design defect may cause a false indication. This can be corrected by adding insulation to the ribbon cable. You can find detailed instructions at my web site. Follow this link:
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.
