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.

    Here is the photo showing my solution. I have now shared this solution with over 800 individuals. Most report success. This problem is caused by a design defect in all GE and Kenmore ovens.
    The technical name for the problem is called Dendrite growth. Many electronic devices have failed because of this well known problem. GE could have prevented this problem for only a few pennies. Do a search on GE oven F7 to learn more about this wide spread problem.

Looking for two year for this solution. Piece of card behind the ribbon and I cleaned the contacts just to be sure. After years of random F7 in the middle of the night, it all works perfectly again. Thanks so much. Saved key panels and electronics replacements.

    Follow up to the paper solution.  After inserting the cards where shown, I also had some errors F7, F0 occasionally.   After some testing, the error quit immediately after pulling the panel out slightly.  I looked and my ribbon cable appears to touch the electric light terminal for the top oven light.  I put a piece of shrink tubing over the lamp terminal to insulate it from the ribbon cable.  So far the problem has stopped.   For those with continuing problems you can look for another contact point such as the bare terminal on the light fixture (top oven in a GE wall mounted unit).

    That's it!  Not only was the paper required per original post but on mine the above insulation of the light bulb wire behind the ribbon cable was also needed.  Since then I have had no more F7s.    If anyone having F7 then also check where the ribbon might be touching a wire when the panel assembly is pushed back into place.  This ribbon was rubbing up on 110v lamp post wire.  Wherever that cable might touch something just protect it and F7 be no more!

F76 error code on ge oven

One of the most common problems with GE electric built in ovens is the error code "F7? shown on the display. I've seen it many times before and today I had a service call for the same problem again. The error code "F7" will be displayed along with a beeping sound if the ERC (Electronic Range Control) or "clock" senses one or more buttons on the control panel stuck. It could be displayed in any mode: "cook", "clean" or even more often in the "time of the day" mode. In order to fix it, the control panel has to be replaced. This is a very simple job and you will need just a 1/4? nut driver and a Phillips screwdriver. - See more at:

I have a GE JT950 double oven that just did the same thing: F7 and beeps like crazy. I found solution on another post: an engineer figured out how to solve the issue without calling GE or buying parts. I just did it tonight and it worked fine. Here is a copy of the post:

Send an e-mail to Charlie at [email protected] 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

You don't say what type of GE oven this is so I will advise the following;

On a GE range oven F7 indicates either a function pad button is stuck or the clock on the oven is malfunctioning

On the 99 Range oven F7 indicates a shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch or a shorted control or connector

On the GE XL44 Self Clean Oven F7 is Stuck keypad or control relay malfunction

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank you.

Hi. this F-7 code is referring to a Shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch, control or connector. unfortunately, this is an integrated control assembly and, the entire control board must be replaced in this case.

Replacing the control(ERC,EOC) will fix this issue.

Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver.
REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order.
