I was tightening the wires on the back panel of the key board also cleaning the strip to the panel and now the oven will not heat up. Seems the key pad is working OK. Did I get a wire moved? Check the wiring diagram but everything looked fine, worked ok before, just the f7 code came on thats why I was cleaning ,tightening and also insulated the ribbon conection. No heat. Need Help ASAP before my wife kills mefo meesing up her oven.

The model number on a built in oven is usually found on the oven frame, just behind the oven door. (should be a metal tag, or silver sticker) It is NOT LIKELY that the oven valve is bad. (although if you have a self clean model, they would have seperate valves for bake and broil)
When the oven is turned on, there should be 120 volts across the ignitor. You can test the igniter by putting one wire into the left side and one into the right side of a standard recepticle, but you have to be careful with bare wires and the ignitor gets hot very quickly, and stays hot for awhile, so if you try it, be very careful. I'm assuming that your original ignitor was a round one also (not a flat one). It is very important to use the same type as the original.
I suspect you have a poor electical connection. Make sure wires are stripped back about 1/2 inch, then make sure the ceramic wire nuts are tight when installed.
Hi. this F-7 code is referring to a Shorted Clear/Off
Key due to membrane switch, control or connector. unfortunately, this is an integrated control assembly and, the entire control board must be replaced in this case.
Replacing the control(ERC,EOC) will fix this issue.
This model has issues with the power input controller board, usually caused by surge following a power failure... board is $285 from GE plus $90 or so to install after paying a $100 service call. Replacment part is special ordered and generally takes a week or so.... have 2 of these ovens... ask me how I know.... LOL
For me the solution was in the temperature sensor. The Locked light kept flashing and the door locking mechanism kept cycling when the door was shut or if I just held the oven light switch in the closed door position. After replacing the control panel I still had the same problem. Next I turned off the breaker and then took off the wire covers on the back of the oven and disconnected the temperature sensor. I then checked the continuity of the sensor which was fine. With the sensor still unplugged, I turned the breaker back on and the panel said locked but the locking mechanism was not cycling. With power still on to the oven I connected the temperature sensor. It worked. All I had to do was press the clear button on the touch panel and everything was fine. I turned the breaker back off and reassembled the oven. Hope this helps.
The "digital screen" is connected to the electronic control board which controls the oven (the surface elements on the stove top will not be affected by this problem). The "flickering on and off" could be any connection that feeds the electrical supply of the control board. Like something in the wiring harness that feeds the relay board, or the wiring harness that goes from the relay board to the electronic control board. It could also be the relay board or the electronic control board themselves. To isolate the problem you would need to check electrical supply to each board at the time of the "problem" when the "digital screen goes completely off." This would tell you where you "have" the voltage and where the voltage supply is lost. If it is a loose or burned wiring harness replace the harness or individual wire causing the problem if it turns out that it is the relay control board or electronic control board replace them. The relay control boards are typically around $75.00 and the electronic control board $150.00 and up. Might be cheaper to purchase another used oven or bite the bullet and buy a new range.
Mine started doing this also. It is the "F7" error reported elsewhere, and it means a bad board or bad connections. I'm in search of a diagram or something to tell me how to open the face up and look at the contacts to the board.
