SOURCE: Fault code F7....
The root cause of most F7 problems is a short circuit in between the two segments of the ribbon cable. In cases with a metal touch panel, there could also be a short circuit between the ribbon cable and the edge of the slot in the touch panel. __The solution is the same for both problems. Add insulation. My fix which has worked for hundreds of cases is to simply place a slip of paper in between the two sections of ribbon cable and for metal touch panels, also between the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot. Try to work the insulation down into the slot at least 1/8". See the attached photo which shows my solution. The short circuit is caused by what is known as a dendrite. This is a form of corrosion that is quite common to printed circuits. Moisture is the primary culprit.____Cleaning the contacts is often suggested. This only works for a short length of time. The movement of the cable temporarily interrupts the short circuit, but with time it grows back again.____Using the self cleaning feature seems to accelerate the deterioration of the cable.____Don't worry about putting paper in the top of oven. It will not get hot enough to burn. GE places service instructions in the top of the oven.____Be certain to turn off the power to the oven before opening the touch panel.____This problem is the result of a design defect in GE ovens that is common to ovens produced since 1998.

...and here it is without having to wade through that whole thread:
take off the faceplate, unhook the wide, flat ribbon cord and use a pencil eraser to clean the metal contact points. Put it back together and you're good to go for a few months. When it happens again, fix it again. It takes about 5 minutes and it's free, which, by the way, is cheaper than buying either of the parts (which I would venture to guess will have the same problem a while down the road anyway).
