Cleaning the contacts is a myth. What you are doing is temporarily disrupting a short circuit near the slot in the touch panel. With time the short circuit returns. The cure is to add insulation. E-mail me at [email protected] for the real solution. This posting made by Powerman

    Powerman, I saw on other Google-sourced online finds that you continuously ask people to email you for the solution. As a fellow engineer to yourself, I recommend uploading the solution as a PDF document and sharing the link here and elsewhere. I thought we engineers created solutions that required LESS maintenance (such as emailing individual PDFs to 1000's of inquirers). Check your engineering experience and get back to me. Also, post the link. K, thanks.




I have had the same problem on mine, but I have 2 single ovens. We had the ribbons cleaned and that seemed to work for about 5 months, but now the problem is back. I notice it acts up more in the winter when it is a rainy day? We have to cut power for 2 minutes or so before we can use them. One is almost nonresponsive at all, and the other works intermitenly.

GE, F7 is a stuck or shorted keypad. You can unplug the keypad ribbon cable from the main board and try to clean the ends with an eraser. See if the code comes back. back.

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.

Hi markw421,
No you do not need to pull the entire oven. If I knew the model number I could give you specific instructions. You can go to and put in your model number and you will find diagrams that will help you open up the beast.
