Question about Ovens
Kenmore built-in-electric oven: I first got an F7 error code and beeping. Turned off unit at breaker for 2hours then turned back on. Was able to set clock, but now it beeps and telling me to push start oven when oven not selected. Pushed clear but that's not helping still tells me to push start. So, I pushed start waited a few seconds, then pushed clear. It still is asking me to push start and beeps. What can I do or am I at the mercy of a repairman and at least a $100.00 bill?
There is a probelm with the control panel ribbon. 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.

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!

On my Kenmore built in electric oven the digital lights are dimmed out. Is there someway to fix this without replacing the whole control panel? The replacement panel costs $387.

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!!!

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.
