F1 is a common error code indicating a failure of the oven control board (aka ERC or EOC). Often these control boards have been discontinued, "no longer available" or are very expensive. We may be able to help and save you money.
We refurbish oven control boards at www.fixyourboard.com.
After much searching, I have found that you have a faulty keypad.
The recommended solution is to unplug the oven, or shut it down at the fuse box, and then remove the faceplate where you can then remove the keypad, and clean the connectors with an eraser, as well as the ribbon that connectes the keypad with the oven.
I hope this helps out.
Send an e-mail
to Charlie at email@example.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.
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.
You can find my solution to the most common cause of the F7 problem at the following link:
I have helped over 1600 folks solve the F7 problem. The problem is usually with the touchpanel and not the ERC. My fix tells how to determine which part is faulty. Hopefully you will not need to purchase a new touchpanel, however, if you do, an internet search will lead you to lower cost sources.
