I am unable to use my oven. When I try to turn it on, I get a F7 code on the panel. I am able to cook on the burners, but I would also like to use my oven. Do you think my panel is burned out.


Error code F7 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

During a day of heavy cooking my electonics have gone crazy... at the drop of a hat "she" will decide to ask for an oven cleaning...and will start to beep and flash f7. suggestions?

Hi katheyquilts,

F7 on most all GE ranges indicates either a stuck keypad function or a faulty clock. The only thing you can do as a do-it-yourselfer is this, push the clear/cancel or off button (depending on what model you have it will be labeled one of those)

If that doesn`t remedy the F7, you`d be best served calling in a pro appliance technician. Unless you feel capable of pulling off the panel at the rear of the range and locating the "ribbon connector" which connect`s the touch pad to the timer/clock, carefully, unplugging that connector and then re-connecting it. If you attempt this, **Shut off the 40amp breaker to the range first**

This remedy is a generalization and your range may not even have a type of "erc" (clock) which uses a ribbon connector from the touch pad to the timer. If you could provide a model number I could perhap`s be more specific if I`m able to locate your model number in a data-base.

Hope that help`s move you forward or solve the problem. I`ll look for your reply regarding a model number...unless the other suggestion`s work of course. ;)

Thank you for visiting "fixya" today and good luck.

I have problem my oven, i see the error code display f7 56


The GE Oven F7 error is caused by poor contact on the flex circuit that connects the keypad.

To fix it, turn off the power and pull the oven out a couple of inches for access.
Remove the 3 hex head screws under the control panel and lift the panel off.
Find the connector where the flex circuit connects to the main oven control. Snap it open and remove the flex circuit.
Clean the flex circuit contacts with electrical contact cleaner and a pencil eraser.
Put it all back together and the F7 should go away.

Unfortunately, this is not a permanent fix, and it will probably recur in another 6-12 months

Leave the ribbon unplugged and see if the code returns if it does not replace the touch panel if it does replace the control

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Error code F7 and controls will not work

Hi there,

I think it have  F7 error not just F...
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.
Good Luck!!
