Question about Kitchen Ranges
F7 on that make of range usually indicates a problem
in the control keypad in which case on your model the whole console
panel usually needs to be replaced to correct the condition. First time it shows, turning off power to owen worked fine. It showed up a couple times and now turning off power didn't work. And the touch panel stop functioning altogether.
A permanent fix for this problem was developed by Charlie Popeck, a professional engineer. It involves inserting a piece of paper between two ribbon cables to eliminate the possibility of short circuit between the two cables. The 30 minute procedure is described (including photos) at the web site: dreaded_f7_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.
