It is possible the relay for the light on the control board has welded points. A door switch could be bypassing the control. keeping the light on when the door is closed. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Ty. So are you saying you think it is the control board, or both door switches?

  • Ty Roshdy Mar 02, 2014

    It would be very rare for both switches to be bad but it is possible that when the door is opened both oven lights come on at the same time. This can be the case. If one switch is staying on then both the lights will be on. It is also possible that there is only one relay on the control board that controls the lights for both ovens. Did only one oven light come on when you opened the door for that oven? Without a schematic it would be difficult to completely diagnose the problem. I will try to locate a schematic and research it for you.

    No both lights came on when the button was pushed. Looks like there is only 1 door switch, on the top oven door. How difficult is it to replace the switch?

  • Ty Roshdy Mar 02, 2014

    They usually are not too hard to replace. Make sure the power is off. If it is a small button type switch with a black body about 3/4 inch in diameter, they usually can be popped out from the front with a small screwdriver. The have little clips on the back that keep it in the cabinet. Carefully pry one side out and depress these clips to pull the entire switch out. Remove the wires on the back, install them on the new switch and push the new switch back in the hole. If this switch checks good then it is probably the relay on the control board. This is a bit more difficult. Hope this helps.

    Never mind, I answered my own question by popping out the switch. It looks like it's the control board, unfortunately.

  • Ty Roshdy Mar 02, 2014

    Try tapping on the relay. Sometimes they just get stuck and s sharp rap will free the contacts. You may try having the board rebuilt by it is usually hafe the cost. the only bad thing is you have to send your board to them and about a week later they send it back. carefully mark all wires first.

    OK, thanks. I'll try that too. The control board replacement looks like you pop off the existing wiring sets one at a time and attach to the new board as you go. Then remove the old board and install the new board. Is it any more complicated than that if I need to do so?

  • Ty Roshdy Mar 02, 2014

    That is just how you do it. You have to be careful about the ribbon cable from the touch panel if there is one. there are small clips that have to released before the ribbon cable can be removed. Other than that it is easy.

HI, if this error code cannot be canceled, this will confirm a touch pad issue. the membrane is damaged and, this will require you to replace the ERC.

Replacing the Electronic oven control will fix this issue.

SOURCE: 326B1230P001 GE Double oven that displays ?F7? and beeps

I have a GE JT950 double oven that just did the same thing: F7 and beeps like crazy. I found solution on another post: an engineer figured out how to solve the issue without calling GE or buying parts. I just did it tonight and it worked fine. Here is a copy of the post:

Send an e-mail to Charlie at for a fix-it that you can try. He explains a possible solution fully with his 'The Dreaded "F7" Error' solution. I actually found his information on another website when I did a web search for "GE Profile Oven F7 Issue". I sent an e-mail to him and he replied with free fix-it information. I am not a repair person myself, but, his instructions are very clear and simple to follow. I did the fix-it at no cost in approximately 10 minutes and it has solved my problem

F7 light comes on and stays on, then beeps and the ovens are both unusable. The F7 light can be cleared, but only for a minute or so. The internet tells me that we are not the only ones to experience...

You have a stuck button on the oven control.
The complete control may have to be replaced.
Try pushing all buttons several times to unstick the bad button.
If that does not work a new control is in your future.

Could be a faulty control as you suspect but also may be a bad keypad. If the "start" button has no effect I'm suspecting the keypad first.

Getting F7 code on a ge profile performance oven , oven light will not turn off and control panel will not respone.....beeps when I push CLEAR OFF button.

F7 A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
Try gliding your finger flat across the keypad rapidly and see if you can unstick the key / touch pad. Usually once this code appears it will repeat.

On self cleaning ovens this is the service check:

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.

Thanks for using FixYa!

The F7 alert keeps flashing/beeping on my JKP27 GE electric double oven even after clearing it or cutting the power to the oven for a period of time. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Ya either have a stuck keypad or a bad oven control. To see what it is you push the clear/off pad, disconnect the ribbon from the control and wait 32 seconds, to see if the if the F-7 code occurs again, If it don't then bad keypad, if it does then bad control.

Ge profile performance double oven. getting an F7

F7 is a stuck keypad/button.
Push all buttons at random several times each. This will sometimes un-stick a stuck button.
If that does not work the keypad control will have to be replaced.
