F7? What is it?

I had used my oven about two hours before using the stovetop.  Later I had all four burners in use and on the display F7 appeared and beeping.  I hit clear and it stopped for a second or two and then starting again.  After three tries husband went downstair and turned the circuit breaker off and back on.  It appears to be fine at this point.  I cannot locate the manual.  What exactly is F7.  The stove and oven have never given me a problem up to this point.

I have a Kenmore 790.96224 electric range and the burners and oven do not work, but the clock is working. how do i fix?

Try replacing ONE stovetop burner and see if the new one works. If it does, replace more stovetop burners. If the new ones all work, replace the oven burners.

If that first replacement stovetop burner STILL doesn't work, don't replace any more. Instead, check (or have checked) the circuit breaker for the range. It may get power from a second source to power the clock.

What is the advantage of gas range than gas stove?

There is much confusion about those terms, especially when used by suppliers / online webshops. A great indepth article about the issue can be found here:

Below is - imho - the most related paragraph:

'Many people use the terms oven, stove, and range interchangeably. However, buyers that plan to purchase a stove or a range should understand the purported meanings of each of these common words. First, the term stove technically refers only to the stovetop, which includes a number of burners (typically four to six) and is used for surface cooking such as boiling, frying, pan-searing, and other methods. The oven is an enclosed device that is used for baking, broiling, roasting, and other cooking methods. It employs concentrated heat within the enclosed area, which is usually delivered via heated coils in the top and the bottom of the stove. The term "range," as defined in Webster's Dictionary, actually refers to the combination of stovetop and oven into one kitchen appliance.'

Hope this helps :)

My wife cleaned the stovetop by removing the burners off the surface. She replaces them and attempts to relight the stove, only to discover that one of the four burners are working. The oven pilot glower...

It's possible that while cleaning around the burners, the burners got debris that is clogging them. If you remove them, try blowing them out with a can of compressed air. You can also use a paperclip to clear the obstruction.

Magic chef gas range; oven takes about an hour or so to preheat.

most common issue, and it sounds like what your experiencing here, is a faulty ignitor, replace the bake ignitor ( located under teh oven floor, attached to the burner bar)

Constant beeping and F7 is displayed

Hi tahitian,

The error code F7 means that the Function key is shorted or stuck. To fix this error, replace touch pad or if touch pad is part of the clock, replace the clock (ERC).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

LED display not working

Did somebody use the control lock by accident. Here is how to disable it. Hopefully it will work: The Control Lock feature shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the oven. The Control Lock feature may be used either when the range is in use or turned off (for example, during cleaning). To lock/unlock control: Before locking, make sure the oven, the timer, and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold the START pad for 5 seconds until ?CONTROL LOCK? appears on the display. Repeat to unlock, and ?CONTROL LOCK? will disappear from the display. Hope this helps Jason
