Could be control module, but not sure. I had issues with a code a long time ago, and the broiler kept coming on and wouldn't shut off, so finally had to shut it off at the breaker. Turns out the control module is fried. But just a thought.
The display of your control is flashing "F" followed by a number or letter. Oven malfunction. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad. Let the oven cool for 1 hour and place the oven back into an oven operation. If the problem repeats, call for service. 1-800-4-My-Home.
If you state the model #, I can look up the owner's manual for you and give you the link. Let me know.
F7 stuck keypad 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.
Try this first! 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!!!
It depends on the actual model number (that you didn't supply), but most Kenmore F7 errors indicate a bad keypad or bad control panel. If you unplug the ribbon cable from the keypad to the panel then plug the oven back in and it starts beeping again, it's a bad control panel, if it doesn't beep anymore, it's a bad keypad.
You can find my solution to the most common cause of the F7 problem at the following link:
I have helped over 1600 folks solve the F7 problem. The problem is usually with the touchpanel and not the ERC. My fix tells how to determine which part is faulty. Hopefully you will not need to purchase a new touchpanel, however, if you do, an internet search will lead you to lower cost sources.
Please let me know if my fix works for you. You can email me at: email@example.com
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!
