I think some of answers here are only for the benefit of selling new parts. 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.

Hi, the ERC on this unit is damaged. if you cleaned the ribbons and check the control panel for lose fit or corroded wires and cleaned as well, this should have fixed the issue but, if the control is still malfunctioning after this thorough inspection of the ribbons and cleansing, this will confirm the major failure and, i recommend replacing the entire ERC(control circuit board.

Please rate and god bless:)

My Kenmore electric stove is about 14 years old. Model #911-4658816 and has never given me any problems. Lately I'm getting an F7 code. I've been told it could be due to a bad ERC switch or button that...


yes f7 can mean a few different things. the erc which is the main control board, the touch pad could be stuck or the ribbon cable on the touch pad could have failed or the latch assembly could be bad... most of the time when you order the erc for this unit a new latch will also come for unit.,. the touch pad is recommended to be replaced at the same time as well... one thing to try is turning the breaker off to unit and run your hand over the keypad buttons firmly pressing each button. then reset breaker sometimes a individual button will get stuck and by doing this will correct the problem.. if not then yes your husband should be able to repair the unit,,, a site like
www.sears.com then hit the parts direct link up top enter your model number and a parts diagram will come up and you can find your parts and order... make sure the power is off to unit and instructions will come for the board most of which is exact replacement as far as touch pad there is just a few screws and a ribbon cable that will be replaced,,,, good luck to you.

F7 alarm


EVERY failure code schematic i look at on maytag states that if your getting a f7 code then your keppad has failed or is stuck... make sure you turn breaker off for approx. 30 seconds and run your hand across touch pad firmly pressing down on all the keys... reset breaker and try again... if it still faults then you are going to have a bad touch pad... be warned though the touch pad does have a ribbon cable that connects to the control coard and it is possible it has shorted control/display board as well... hope this helps you out ...appliance servicer for 18 years

Kenmore wall oven (model 911.41065690). Works fine for days then give error code of F7. I can reset with breaker but it will return.


The F7 error code on your oven indicates the touch pad has failed. To repair it you will need to replace the touch pad which is listed as a control panel w/keypad in the parts diagram.
If you do the repair yourself, disconnect the power to the oven. Take the 3 screws out above the door that hold the control panel on to the oven. Pull the control panel out at the bottom and lift it up, then pull out the top and drop it down so you can see the back side of the control panel, and you will see a ribbon connector going from the touchpad to the electronic oven control (ERC).
There is a latch holding the ribbon connector to the ERC, raise the latch to release and pull the ribbon out of the ERC.
Replace the part and reverse these instructions to replace the control panel.

good luck

HI. this is a board fault. the control, or erc/eoc must be replaced in order to correct this issue you are experience.

The Function keys on the integrated touch pad are damaged.

My Kennmore double oven is beeping with an F7 code


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.

F7 error code


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 hutchipop@yahoo.com. Regards, Charlie

GE Profile Oven FTP18 - F7 Code


The F7 problem is usually caused by a short circuit between segments of the ribbon cable connecting the touchpanel to the ERC. Open the touch panel. Insert a slip of paper (yes paper) between the two segments of ribbon cable where it exits the slot in the touchpanel. Try to work the paper down as far as possible. A piece of file card may work better. See the attached photo. If you have a metal touch panel, also add slips of paper between the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot. I have shared my solution with over 795 folks with the F7 problem. Most report success. Cleaning the contacts is a myth. It is only a short time solution as when you move the cable you are temporarily disrupting the short circuit, but it will grow back. The short is caused by what is know a dendrite. It is a growth from the silver traces on the membrane switch conductors. If you want more technical information, contact me at hutchipop@yahoo.com. The solution should work for all ovens made by GE including Kenmore as far back as 1998. Don't be concerned about putting paper in the top of the oven. GE places a set of instructions in the top of the oven. Many folks have replaced touchpanels only to have the problem return.
