Question about Microwave Ovens
According to GE appliance website http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/faqs/faq_ranges.htm
F7 This code usually means that there is a problem with the keypanel. Many times, it means the keypanel needs to be replaced
This used to be a very regular problem with some model of GE ovens.
Looking at the messages on this forum, some people have worked out a cheap solution. But considering the postings are a bit old, I don't think you will get any reply if you contact the person.
However, there is a solution posted on Fixya.com last year which you could try..
"Please, don't replace anything, stop letting people rip you off, try this! The insulation in the ribbon cable is poor. The conductors in the cable are crossed. The ribbon cable is actually two ribbons pressed together, and the conductors between the two cables are shorting or becomming crossed. Lift the two cables apart, place a piece of paper between them, fold the edges of the paper over the cable so that it does not slip out, and make sure to shove it all the way down to where it will meet the plastic display panel housing. There, problem solved. " ..turbo247.
I am assuming you are able to find the ribbon cables connecting the keypad to the main controller. If not, post a comment with the actual Model number of your oven (true temp is only a family) and will try to find the location of the cable.
Hope this helps. A new Oven should set you back about $500-$600 but then it should fit into your existing space.
