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.

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.
'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.'
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.
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!!
if you will send me your model number off your serial plate on your range will be on front open oven door or lower drawer some where and when you bought it i need to check the service bulletins before i reply but dont rate me till were done
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
