My oven is saying F7 d6. The d6 is flashing. The oven is beeping. It is a GE model number jsp42s0k4ss


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Do you have the dreaded F7 message pulsating from your oven? The original purpose of the F7 message is to signal a stuck START key, which is a rare occurrence.

The more common cause is a type of short circuit that occurs in the touch panel near the cable slot. The fix that I will describe addresses this type of fault. It will not fix a stuck START key. It will not fix a faulty Electronic Range Control (ERC). If you are getting other errors, such as F1, the fix may still do the job. F0 is usually a shorted off key.
Cleaning the ribbon cable connector is a myth. What you accomplish is to temporarily disrupt the short circuit occurring near the slot in the touch panel. With time the short circuit grows back. It happens more often when the humidity is high. So here is my solution to the F7 problem.
The most important step is first turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker panel.
You will need to open the touch panel. There are typically three small screws on the bottom edge of the touch panel. It is advisable to have an assistant to hold up the panel while you work on it. Pull the panel outward at the bottom to gain access. There are many wires attached to the panel. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.
When the panel is open, you will see a flat ribbon cable connecting the ERC to the touch panel. See photo # 1. The principle of the fix is to apply additional insulation in and around the ribbon cable at the slot where it exits the touch panel.
There are three basic styles of touch panels. Here is how the fix is applied for each style.
1. Plastic touch panel with a two-segment ribbon cable.
Apply a slip of paper or file card material between the two segments of ribbon cable in the area of the slot. Work the paper down as far as it will penetrate. Typically it will only go in about 1/8". See photo # 2.
2. Metal touch panel with a two-segment ribbon cable.
Apply the extra insulation as per style 1. In addition, apply extra insulation on both sides of the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot.
3. Metal touch panel with a one-segment ribbon cable. Apply the extra insulation on both sides of the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot.
If your style is different from the above three styles, the fix will not work for your situation.
Don't be concerned about using paper for the insulation. It will not get hot enough to burn. You will probably find a set of instructions printed on paper in the top of the oven when you open the touch panel.
If the fix doesn't work for your situation, you will need to replace either the touch panel or the ERC. Here is how to determine which one is faulty.

1. Turn the power off.
2. Remove the ribbon cable connector from the ERC.
3. Turn the power back on.
If the F7 does not appear after a few minutes, the problem is in the touch panel and it must be replaced.
If the F7 returns after a few minutes, the problem is with the ERC and it must be replaced or repaired.

F7 code keeps coming up on the digipad screen. timer goes on and off by itself. even when unplugged and then plugged back in, still happens.


The F7 code is due to a stuck button on the touch panel or a bad control module. You will need to unplug the range and remove the back panel. The first thing you will need to check is that the ribbon connector that goes from the touch panel to the control module is seated correctly. If it is found seated correctly then you will need to remove the ribbon connector and try cleaning the contacts with an eraser then re-install the connector and power the range back up. If the error code comes back then you will need to determine if the touch pad or control module is defective. You can do this by disconnecting the ribbon cable and power the range back on. Then wait 24 hours and see if the error comes back. If it does then it is the control module(ERC) and if it does not then the touchpad is the problem. Doing this work will require you to remove the back panel of the range. Make sure that you do not work on the range when it is plugged into the electrical outlet. You can be injured or worse if you attempt to make repairs on the range and you do not know what you are doing.

F7 error code


Hi Kathryn, I believe that I have already sent you my solution via another route. Hope you received it. Basicaly for anyone else with this problem, it is caused by a short circuit envolving the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. The solution varies slightly depending on whether you have a metal or plastic touch panel. If you have a plastic touch panel,you need to add some extra insulation between the two pieces of ribbon cable in the slot where it exits the touchpanel. You need to slip it down as far into the slot as it will go. A piece of paper, a piece of file card, a thin piece of mylar will all work just fine. If you have a metal touchpanel, you need to insulate the edges of the slot as well with paper or mylar. Insulate both edges. If you don't have two sections to the ribbon cable, obviously you can't put insulation between the sections. If you have a plastic touch panel and only one section to the ribbon, you are out of luck. There is nothing you can do except to purchase a new touch panel. Cleaning the contacts is a myth. It doesn't help. Hope this helps. Please let me know your results.

Fault code F7....


The root cause of most F7 problems is a short circuit in between the two segments of the ribbon cable. In cases with a metal touch panel, there could also be a short circuit between the ribbon cable and the edge of the slot in the touch panel. __The solution is the same for both problems. Add insulation. My fix which has worked for hundreds of cases is to simply place a slip of paper in between the two sections of ribbon cable and for metal touch panels, also between the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot. Try to work the insulation down into the slot at least 1/8". See the attached photo which shows my solution. The short circuit is caused by what is known as a dendrite. This is a form of corrosion that is quite common to printed circuits. Moisture is the primary culprit.____Cleaning the contacts is often suggested. This only works for a short length of time. The movement of the cable temporarily interrupts the short circuit, but with time it grows back again.____Using the self cleaning feature seems to accelerate the deterioration of the cable.____Don't worry about putting paper in the top of oven. It will not get hot enough to burn. GE places service instructions in the top of the oven.____Be certain to turn off the power to the oven before opening the touch panel.____This problem is the result of a design defect in GE ovens that is common to ovens produced since 1998.
