F7 on kenmore range, this usually indicates a problem in the control keypad in which case on your model the whole console panel usually needs to be replaced to correct the condition, the control panel you just fixed might not be working one, because if it is, it is suppose to fix the problem,. F7 on kenmore oven range means the control keypad is faulty and must be replaced.

Oven keeps beaping and has a alarm symbol showing

Sounds like the timer was set and time is up, the issue is whichever model oven it is has a specific way to stop the alarm. Some just require a simple pressing "cancel" while others use a combination of buttons. I would try pressing either the arrow up or down, if not present just press the "timer" button, see if the alarm symbol changes or disappears

How do I increase the volume in my oven alarm

Best bet would be to call an electrician and say specifically:

'Can you install a louder alarm in my oven'

You'll get asked about what brand and model it is, but what you can tell them is "Put another mains voltage alarm in parallel with the existing alarm"

If they don't understand that, call another company.

Alarm on NEFF U1721

It might be the volume control.

Try pressing the minus button a few times. The loudness should cycle between low, medium and high.
