There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components. It should cover an F7 error code.

A video is available here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

F7 Error Code On Microwave Ovens With Inverter Board
MODELS: GH9177XL, GH9185XL, MH9180XL, MH7155XMS, & KHHS178L for example

An F7 error code could be an inverter board failure. Anything else that prevents microwave energy may also cause an F7 error, and must be checked. The technician should perform the following procedure to test for an F7 error code:

1. Check the magnetron.
2. Check the magnetron TCO (it should be closed).
3. Check the 3 interlock switches.
4. Check the harness wiring.
5. Check the electronic controls.
6. Check the inverter board.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.
