Question about Kenmore 42161 / 42169 Electric Single Oven
Kenmore built-in-electric oven: I first got an F7 error code and beeping. Turned off unit at breaker for 2hours then turned back on. Was able to set clock, but now it beeps and telling me to push start oven when oven not selected. Pushed clear but that's not helping still tells me to push start. So, I pushed start waited a few seconds, then pushed clear. It still is asking me to push start and beeps. What can I do or am I at the mercy of a repairman and at least a $100.00 bill? Getting F7 error code. Have cut off power for 2 hours to reset. Pushed clear/off pad and waited 2 hours. Code continues to repeat. Could this be a fuse somewhere. Thanks for help.
Try this first!
The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!

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.
