Question about Ovens
I have a GE wall oven which was probably manufactured in 1996 or 1997. It is giving a F5 error message while turned on. The magnatron was replaced in 2004 because of error messages. What does F5 mean?

The lock latch is located directly in the center upper portion of the door. It is a hook shaped latch that lock by turning downward. This lock gets stuck in this position which causes the e1 f5 error code. Locate the latch through the vent holes in the upper front of the oven door. Insert flat headed srew driver into vent hole and gently push latch up to a horizontal position & simply open door. Once unlocked, push cancel on the control panel.This will clear the error code and resolve the issue.

SOURCE: F7 error message on GE oven
one other comment about the F7 message having delt with this stupid oven for years and after replacing touchpads and controls the touch pad is the cause of the F7 in one of 2 ways either the ribbon cable is shorted (the repair for this has been posted by several people and is good) or a stuck button .One cause of the stuck button at least in my house has been steam coming from the oven flowing over the touch pad this can get moisture in the touchpad shorting it out causing a button to stick giving an error message also making the oven unusable....what I did solved the problem I figured I was going to have to spring for a new touch pad so I peeled it off the front of the oven got under the edge with a knife and lifted it off (it is stuck on fairlly well but will lift off) once this is done i squeezed every button between my fingers and flexed the touchpad back and forth (flexed not bent) ..I noticed the edges are not sealed well allowing moisture between the mylar surfaces poor design! i replaced pad and sprayed edges with silicone spray soaked the front also around the window area figuring the silicone would get between the surfaces and help prevent this problem Ta Da oven all better too bad I didn't figure this out sooner but I hope this helps someone....GB BodhaineG@aol.com
