F7 error I followed the same fix but the F7 error came back after about 2 years. Removing and replacing the business card upside down did not resolve the problem.  Any further ideas? gistraub@mac.com

I am assuming you have two sections to the ribbon cable and a plastic touch panel. Try cleaning the area between ribbons in the area of the slot in the touch panel. Use alcohol and a Q tip. Let it dry. Try forcing the business card further down into between the ribbon cables. If you have a metal touch panel, you need to apply insulation between the ribbon cable and the edge of the slot. Refer to my instructions at the following link:

If this doesn't help, you have a short in the touchpanel at some other location and my fix can't reach it. You will need a need touchpanel.

F7 is permanently on the key pad and the oven is not working. I have disconnected the power so it would reset itself but it did not work.


Hi

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.

Ge profile dbl oven keeps reading error message F7. Put cardboard card around ribbon cable on back of controller as advised a year ago on this site. We have moved it & changed it and now it works...


Hello,

The F7 error code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck. What the proper repair procedure is,is to first replace the touch pad and if F7 returns replace clock (also known as eoc or control board) Do not take this wrong but a no point in my 30 years appliance repair career exchanging info with my coworkers or even factory trainers at training sessions have i ever heard anything about putting cardboard around the touchpad ribbon cable.

Won't work keeps saying F7


F7 is a shorted clear off keypad. Replace keypannel. (not real cheap, but cheaper than a new built in oven)

F7 error message on GE oven


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.

Control Panel


there is no other way to get around that but to replae the control once agsin. It sounds like there are some stuck touchpads or the control itself is shorted. either way you need to replace it.

GE Profile Oven FTP18 - F7 Code


The F7 problem is usually caused by a short circuit between segments of the ribbon cable connecting the touchpanel to the ERC. Open the touch panel. Insert a slip of paper (yes paper) between the two segments of ribbon cable where it exits the slot in the touchpanel. Try to work the paper down as far as possible. A piece of file card may work better. See the attached photo. If you have a metal touch panel, also add slips of paper between the ribbon cable and the edges of the slot. I have shared my solution with over 795 folks with the F7 problem. Most report success. Cleaning the contacts is a myth. It is only a short time solution as when you move the cable you are temporarily disrupting the short circuit, but it will grow back. The short is caused by what is know a dendrite. It is a growth from the silver traces on the membrane switch conductors. If you want more technical information, contact me at hutchipop@yahoo.com. The solution should work for all ovens made by GE including Kenmore as far back as 1998. Don't be concerned about putting paper in the top of the oven. GE places a set of instructions in the top of the oven. Many folks have replaced touchpanels only to have the problem return.
