    My Kenmore built-in wall oven, model #911.40161792, started beeping and showing code F7. I can press CLEAR/OFF and it stops beeping for a minute or two and starts back. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with it?

    I have a Kenmore Wall oven that beeps and shows a F7. The touch pad seems to be broken I think. What's up?

The F7 error code indicates that one or more potentiometers (burner switches) are not connected properly or that you have one or more failed potentiometers.
The specific details of this failure code are provided in the second image below.
This is an excerpt from the technical information for this range.
Normally, a service technician would be needed to conduct the troubleshooting and diagnosis for this type of failure.
If you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely unplug the range and access these potentiometers (54 in the third image example) you may be able to check for loose or broken wires that could be causing this code.
If no loose wires are found, then you will likely need to have a technician find and replace a failed potentiometer.

SOURCE: Kenmore oven keeps beeping, shows F7 on display.

Please, don't replace anything before trying this first! The insulation in the ribbon cable is poor, so the conductors in the cable become crossed. The ribbon cable is actually two ribbons pressed together, and the conductors between the two cables are shorting or becomming crossed. Lift the two cables apart, place a piece of paper between them, fold the edges of the paper over the cable so that it does not slip out, and make sure to shove it all the way down to where it will meet the plastic display panel housing. There, problem solved, and you didn't have to buy new parts.

The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!

There is a probelm with the control panel. You can fix it for about a penny. The panel has a printed ribbon cable that plugs into the relay board. The ribbon cable is actually two cables pressed together, which can be seperated by simply lifting them apart. The ribbon cable has a defect in that the plasic insulation is defective, causing the leads between the two ribbons to cross, or short circuit. Simply place a thin sheet of paper between them, and make sure you push the paper down all of the way to the plastic housing, fold over the edges around the cable, you are done.

My Kenmore wall oven has a code F7 and is constantly beeping. What does this indicate?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F7 error code is displayed when the clock assembly/electronic range control (ERC) goes bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

''F7'' Error Code


HI. This is the result of a failed function key. This is an integrated part of the main control board. Unfortunately, this is not repairable, and the main control board will need to be replaced, asap.

Kenmore electric built-in oven control panel beeping


We had the same problem. F7 error code and beeping. We turned off at the breaker- left it off for hours turned it back on and still f7 and beeping. We call repairman to come out and he removed the cover on control panel (3 screws on bottom of controll panel and it pops off). He unplugged the ribbon keypad connection - Cleaned the ends with a pencil eraser and said it is fixed and we would not have a problem.

Well, that was a fast way to spend 60 bucks but it has been a week and the oven has been great. No more beeps or error codes. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO IT YOURSELF!
