Re: Error message...

The F7 is intended to indicate a stuck START key. However, a design defect may cause a false indication. This can be corrected by adding insulation to the ribbon cable. You can find detailed instructions at my web site. Follow this link:

All of the above must be entered as the address on the same line.

Ge profile dbl oven keeps reading error message F7. Put cardboard card around ribbon cable on back of controller as advised a year ago on this site. We have moved it & changed it and now it works...


The F7 error code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck. What the proper repair procedure is,is to first replace the touch pad and if F7 returns replace clock (also known as eoc or control board) Do not take this wrong but a no point in my 30 years appliance repair career exchanging info with my coworkers or even factory trainers at training sessions have i ever heard anything about putting cardboard around the touchpad ribbon cable.

F7 flashing on our oven screen

Without the model and brand I can only give you the most common F7 Error code. F7 for the most part on a oven is a stuck key on the key pad and can also be a control board. Some key pads are part of the control and you will just need to replace the control.

F7 displays on control panel????? JRS04BOW3BB. Used very little. Timer kept beeping on its own so I disconnected at breaker.

Hi there,

Well, F7 error code occures due to
A = Function pad button stuck or 
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver.
REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order.

Good Luck!!

I am getting an F7 error message more and more frequently. When the F7 message is on the display, my kepad does not work and I get an annoying beep. When I press "Clear" the F7 and beep will stop until the...


You don't say what type of GE oven this is so I will advise the following;

On a GE range oven F7 indicates either a function pad button is stuck or the clock on the oven is malfunctioning

On the 99 Range oven F7 indicates a shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch or a shorted control or connector

On the GE XL44 Self Clean Oven F7 is Stuck keypad or control relay malfunction

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank you.

Error code F7 keeps coming up, what does this mean?

F1 error and beeping. Don't bother getting GE out there. Cost me $90 to learn they don't make the clock. WOuld have been $500+ for the control panel anyway. Better off just buying a new one. Planned obsolescence I guess. I won't buy GE again.

F7 code keeps flashing on upper oven, nothing on keypad works

A function pad is probably stuck.
Push all buttons several times each. Often this will clear a stuck pad.
If that does not work replace the clock.

FO message means there is short in the clear Off touch button. The only solution replace the complete panel. My cost delivered $328. Ouch!

I have an F7 error code

This usually indicates a stuck key, requiring keypad replacement.
This often involves replacing whole console assembly. You need full model a and serial to order parts.
