The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
Otherwise, F7 usually indictaes a stuck key on the keypad.

You may choose to replace the keypad yourself or have us help.

If it's heating and shuts down, the thermal fuse may be defective, monitors the temperature of the magnetron, or the magnetron is overheating.

The oven (10+ years old GE True Temp double wall oven) beeps and displays an F7 error message. We can temporarily stop it by pushing the Clear button, but it starts again in a few seconds. We don't know...

I'm a GE tech, the F7 means there is either a stuck button on the keypad or relay on the board behind the keypad. Shut off the breaker. Remove the 3 screws under the keypad and lift the panel a bit to remove it. Lay it face down on the top rack and disconnect the ribbon cable. Turn power back on and if f7 goes away the problem is in the keypad. If f76 returns it's in the control. We typically replace both together because usually if you replace 1 it will come back later then be the other part.

Sparks coming from inside of oven

This is a simple fix.

You need to remove the rack and all of the holders.

Clean the metal thoroughly where the rack mounts fit.

Replace all the rack mounts with new ones, insert the rack and you're all set.

Then be sure to keep it really clean, even if you have to remove the rack and new mounts periodically to get it really clean.

GE Microwave Profile Spacemaker Runs on its own

Your microwave turning on by itself is a "self preservation feature" of the GE Profile Advantium and maybe some other models. Read the manual, When your over the range oven gets warm enough, for whatever reason the venting fan comes on until a satisfactory oven temperature is reached. You are not permitted to shut the vent fan off. Also it seems a temperature near room temp must be achieved before it shuts the fan motor off, it is very annoying. We had to return our Advantium because of fan noise. I configured the ovens vent fan to the recirculate direction because we do not have a vent duct that exits the house over our range. When the vent fan acting as the ovens cooling fan automatically turned on we would have to leave the house to hear each other talk. Too bad we really liked the oven other than that major problem.
