My wall oven keeps flashing an F7 fault code (and beeps for a few seconds). I can usually clear it and continue to use the oven, however it occasionally locks the control panel (turning off the breaker usually resets this). I had the ERC replaced less than 3 years ago (for a similar fault code). Does it need to be replaced again? How often do these parts have to be replaced? They are not that cheap and I can not even find the part on the Sears repair site. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Re: Kenmore Gas wall oven flashes F7 Code
You can find my solution to the most common cause of the F7 problem at the following link:
I have helped over 1600 folks solve the F7 problem. The problem is usually with the touchpanel and not the ERC. My fix tells how to determine which part is faulty. Hopefully you will not need to purchase a new touchpanel, however, if you do, an internet search will lead you to lower cost sources.
Please let me know if my fix works for you. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello - This manufacturer does not show to have such an error code for a wall oven. However the error codes F30/F31 indicates that the unit either has an issue with the oven sensor, wiring with the EOC or the probe connections is open or shorted. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
Ya either have a stuck keypad or a bad oven control. To see what it is you push the clear/off pad, disconnect the ribbon from the control and wait 32 seconds, to see if the if the F-7 code occurs again, If it don't then bad keypad, if it does then bad control.
Well, F7 error code occures due to A = Function pad button stuck or B = Bad clock Unstick button or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver. REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order.
F7 stuck keypad Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on. Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by: 1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad. 2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs
If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.
If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
Try this first! The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!
The fault code "F0" is indicating a possible stuck or shorted key pad or oven control board failure.
Determine if the problem is with the key panel or the oven control board by:
1. Pushing Clear/Off pad.
2. Disconnecting the Ribbon Cable Connector from the control board and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if the Code recurs.
If the code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.
If the code does not recur the problem is the Key panel and it would need replaced.
This test is normally done by an experienced service technician to avoid any possibility of getting shocked. This has to be done with voltage applied to the wall oven. Extreme caution should be exercised while testing.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.
We had the same problem. F7 error code and beeping. We turned off at the breaker- left it off for hours turned it back on and still f7 and beeping. We call repairman to come out and he removed the cover on control panel (3 screws on bottom of controll panel and it pops off). He unplugged the ribbon keypad connection - Cleaned the ends with a pencil eraser and said it is fixed and we would not have a problem.
Well, that was a fast way to spend 60 bucks but it has been a week and the oven has been great. No more beeps or error codes. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO IT YOURSELF!
