Question about GE Ovens
I am getting an F7 EA error code on this range that has an ERC and touch pad. Have tried disconnect / connect three times. Also tried the ''insulation'' fix and the ''clean the ribbon cable'' fix. Neither worked. Have found information on F7 error codes, but not one that reads F7 EA. None of the buttons on the touch pad work. F7 recurrs after power disconnect and beeps for 10 mins. then stops beeping but continues to flash. Will stop flashing when the stop button is pushed and then the time appears. This only lasts approx. 3 - 4 mins. and F7 EA reappears and beeping begins again. Problem began after oven was self cleaned. Help. Range is only 2 yrs. old and I don't want to have to replace the ERC.

F-9 means:Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
To solve this...Just press and hold the door latch to unlock position and then press cancel for a few seconds. The latch will return to its original position
This will probably fix it..but if doesnt work try this
Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.
If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.

I have a double oven GE Profile. The error message FO appeared. I shut off the circuit breaker for 30 minutes or more and the oven works but without warning FO reappears. FO message means there is short in the clear Off touch button. The only solution replace the complete panel. My cost delivered $328. Ouch!

Probably a bad door lock solenoid. That is some kind of door lock problem. Trouble is they are not all the same. This training manual shows locations of model number. Perhaps if you post that I might can come up with a tech sheet and you would get a better answer. see page 4

Testimonial: "was surprised at such a quick response...needed additional information to provide a better solution...very grateful for the assistance"
Error code F7 means a stuck keypad button or a shorted connection on the keypad. Try and pull the ribbon cables off the control board, clean the copper connections and then put the cable back and check if error is still there. If error persists then unplug the ribbon cable and let it be unplugged for over 8-10 hours. If no error code after 8-10 hours then it was due to touch pad, however, if the error ode still appears then it is due to faulty ERC. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need further assistance.

F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine
whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is
defective when F1 error code is present.
Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single
assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC
Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound)
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.
