The F7 error code indicates that one or more potentiometers (burner switches) are not connected properly or that you have one or more failed potentiometers.
The specific details of this failure code are provided in the second image below.
This is an excerpt from the technical information for this range.
Normally, a service technician would be needed to conduct the troubleshooting and diagnosis for this type of failure.
If you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely unplug the range and access these potentiometers (54 in the third image example) you may be able to check for loose or broken wires that could be causing this code.
If no loose wires are found, then you will likely need to have a technician find and replace a failed potentiometer.

F7 code, alarm going off.


Hello there and than you for choosing fixya
Normally the f7 error code is telling you that the ovens (electronic range controle) is faulty and needs to be replaced,
I would first unplug the oven and open up the panel that houses the controles and check all of the wires to ensure that none of them are loose if needed remove them and clean them and reinstall them than after this is done then plug the oven back in and try it again if the error code is still visable than yes the ERC (ELECTRONIC RANGE CONTROLE ) is bad AND MUST BE REPLACED this normally costs about 150 to 300 dollars depending on hte age of the unit ok?
Hope this helps
Best regards Mike

My Kenmore wall oven has a code F7 and is constantly beeping. What does this indicate?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F7 error code is displayed when the clock assembly/electronic range control (ERC) goes bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Oven displays code F7


The F7 error code on this oven indicates that you have a problem with the control keypad or the electronic oven control board. The image below shows how to access the control board on this oven. Shut off the circuit breakerto the oven before accessing internal components. If you are able to access the control board, you can check the ribbon cable to make sure that it is properly plugged in. If the ribbon cable is secure and you see no damage to it, I recommend that you unplug that cable and reassemble the oven. Reset the breaker to power the oven back up. Wait for one minute to see if the F7 code returns with the ribbon cable unplugged. If it does then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

''F7'' Error Code


HI. This is the result of a failed function key. This is an integrated part of the main control board. Unfortunately, this is not repairable, and the main control board will need to be replaced, asap.

Error code f7 on Kenmore wall oven 911.41165791


There is a probelm with the control panel. You can fix it for about a penny. The panel has a printed ribbon cable that plugs into the relay board. The ribbon cable is actually two cables pressed together, which can be seperated by simply lifting them apart. The ribbon cable has a defect in that the plasic insulation is defective, causing the leads between the two ribbons to cross, or short circuit. Simply place a thin sheet of paper between them, and make sure you push the paper down all of the way to the plastic housing, fold over the edges around the cable, you are done.

My oven wont quit beeping!


It depends on the actual model number (that you didn't supply), but most Kenmore F7 errors indicate a bad keypad or bad control panel. If you unplug the ribbon cable from the keypad to the panel then plug the oven back in and it starts beeping again, it's a bad control panel, if it doesn't beep anymore, it's a bad keypad.

Please unplug the oven power with working on it.
