Oven will not come on, no power, when it does work it will make a bleeping sound and blink F7
The oven I have isn't working. It doesn't come on. This is the first time this has ever happened. I've at this residence for 6 years. The only problems we would have is it would make a beeping sound and blink F7. We don't know what F7 means. How we would get to stop is by cutting the power, that means would go to the circuit breaker and cut the power off to the oven. I would like to know why it is working anymore and what do I need to do to get to work.

Hi, Here is the list of f7 codes for this oven and what they mean and what needs to be checked and fixed F7 Function key shorted Replace touch pad F7 Function key shorted; too hot at the clock assembly (also called the ERC) or shorted touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) Replace touchpad or ERC F7 Lock motor relay watchdog circuit is active when it should be off Microprocessor checking the operation of the EDC lock, relay failed. Replace EDC.
Thanks for using FixYa. Error F7 on your Kenmore means that the keypad is shorted or stuck and to resolve this issue you’ll have to replace the electronic range control (ERC). Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
F7 stuck keypad Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on. Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by: 1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad. 2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs
If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.
If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
Your problem is most likely caused by a short between sections of the ribbon cable between the touchpanel and the electronic control. The solution is to insert a slip of paper between the sections where it exits the touch panel. See the attached photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, insert slips of paper on either side of the ribbon cable as well. CAUTION: Be certain to turn off the power to the oven before you poke your fingers in and around the touchpanel. My solution has worked for hundreds of folks. Don't worry about the paper burning.
