F7 error message on GE oven

We keep getting an F7 error message on our JT950 GE oven. We can clear it with the clear command although it comes back. Is there a grounding problem, control panel problem? Thanks

    my oven has been beeping F7 all nite....I unplugged the oven as manual says, but it returns........what next, call a repair man??????

  • BILLYSKY2 Jan 01, 2009

    The ovens continually beep and flash F7. The only way that I have been able to stop the beeping is to switch the breaker off.

Send an e-mail to Charlie at hutchipop@yahoo.com for a fix-it that you can try. He explains a possible solution fully with his 'The Dreaded "F7" Error' solution. I actually found his information on another website when I did a web search for "GE Profile Oven F7 Issue". I sent an e-mail to him and he replied with free fix-it information. I am not a repair person myself, but, his instructions are very clear and simple to follow. I did the fix-it at no cost in approximately 10 minutes and it has solved my problem so far.

My oven is also a JT950 and the builder installed it in our home back in 2000. Our F7 issue started about 2 years ago. For a few months, "clearing" the panel and/or shutting the oven off at the breaker panel would temporarily solve the problem. About 1 1/2 year ago, however, the F7 would come on and continually beep. A repairman looked at the oven and replaced the control panel at a cost of $600 (ugh...). That solved the problem until a month ago when the F7 continuous beeping began again. There was no way I was going to pay another $600. for "temporary" repair and I was thinking of replacing the oven. Luckily, I came across the above-mentioned fix-it information and took a chance by following the simple instructions provided.

    I just wanted to say that the fix-it I did has worked since I repaired the oven per the e-mailed instructions I received from Charlie at hutchipop@yahoo.com. I am so happy! If you have not yet tried this repair, please contact Charlie and ask him to e-mail it to you. His e-mail is free and his fix-it could save your oven.

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.

One other comment about the F7 message having delt with this stupid oven for years and after replacing touchpads and controls the touch pad is the cause of the F7 in one of 2 ways either the ribbon cable is shorted (the repair for this has been posted by several people and is good) or a stuck button .One cause of the stuck button at least in my house has been steam coming from the oven flowing over the touch pad this can get moisture in the touchpad shorting it out causing a button to stick giving an error message also making the oven unusable....what I did solved the problem I figured I was going to have to spring for a new touch pad so I peeled it off the front of the oven got under the edge with a knife and lifted it off (it is stuck on fairlly well but will lift off) once this is done i squeezed every button between my fingers and flexed the touchpad back and forth (flexed not bent) ..I noticed the edges are not sealed well allowing moisture between the mylar surfaces poor design! i replaced pad and sprayed edges with silicone spray soaked the front also around the window area figuring the silicone would get between the surfaces and help prevent this problem Ta Da oven all better too bad I didn't figure this out sooner but I hope this helps someone....GB BodhaineG@aol.com

7/31/09: had the same F7 code and beeping on my JT950 GE double oven. GE wante several hundred in parts and labor. Came across Charlie's fix. I emaile him and he promptly emailed me back a PDF with easy instructions and pictures on how to cure this problem. It is not equipment failure, but something known as "silver migration" of the ribbon strips (Google the term). In short, problem was fixed for FREE. Thank you Charlie.

    I just wanted to post that I followed the advice of the guy who posted the Kenmore Elite oven F7 error code fix involving putting paper on each side of the ribbon cables. That worked like a charm and saved me hundreds of dollars.

I have an F0 and F7 error codes. I unplugged the power connector to the control panel and reset the ribbon connector to no avail. Must physically "unplug" the entire unit? I have to remove the entire unit to get to the plug? Is there really a difference between unplugging the whole oven and just disconnecting power to the front faceplate?

I have a ge JS900WOK1WW slide in. I tried to separate the ribbon but was only getting laminate facing. I remembered another site where the guy suggested trimming the end of the ribbon cable by a 1/4" - It Worked ! ! ! At least so far, so good. Any input from you guys?

It's most likely that the error code you are seeing is F1, not F7. F1 is a code for 'stuck touch pad'. You will need to replace the clock/ERC or the touch pad (or both).

Hi

You don't say what type of GE oven this is so I will advise the following;

On a GE range oven F7 indicates either a function pad button is stuck or the clock on the oven is malfunctioning

On the 99 Range oven F7 indicates a shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch or a shorted control or connector

On the GE XL44 Self Clean Oven F7 is Stuck keypad or control relay malfunction

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank you.

Error code F7


your problem is with the EOC (Electronic oven control) or touch pad if it is seperate from the control...if the touch pad is seperate...unplug range - access the control panel - remove the wiring/tape wire from touchpad to EOC...plug range back in...leave over night...if f7 code comes back it's the EOC...if the error code clears it's the touchpad...replace the part with the problem...if touchpad built into EOC replace the EOC. Hope this helps...if you have any other questions please feel free to comment again.

Error code F7 keeps coming up, what does this mean?


F1 error and beeping. Don't bother getting GE out there. Cost me $90 to learn they don't make the clock. WOuld have been $500+ for the control panel anyway. Better off just buying a new one. Planned obsolescence I guess. I won't buy GE again.

Oven does mot work


F-7 on the GE is a touch pad error, all you can do is replace the whole touchpad. You can try shutting the power off at the breaker leave off for 5 min at least. turn the power back on sometimes this will get rid of it for a time.
