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.

What is F7 10 code on kenmore elite 790.4661 electric range

You may have a bad Electronic range control ERC, but if your not handy you may want a service person to look at it. If you are handy and can get to the control panel, check and clean the connections, after you disconnect the power. Use tuner cleaner or alcohol. There are diagrams of you range online. Are you having one error or two. Looks like you mention f7 and 10, or am I mistaken.

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.

Bad ignitor? I have a Maytag oven CRG9800BAE displaying F7. No oven heat. Stovetop burners work fine. Got the code cleared, clock is working fine. Is this a bad ignitor? If so, could you confirm the...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection.

F7 Error code while cleaning stovetop

Usually a stuck keypad. Try pushing all buttons at random several times each including cancel. If that does not correct it this time you will need a new touchpad and ERC.

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!!
