Re: Ge wall oven display says F7
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. If you have questions, contact me at [email protected]
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.

EVERY failure code schematic i look at on maytag states that if your getting a f7 code then your keppad has failed or is stuck... make sure you turn breaker off for approx. 30 seconds and run your hand across touch pad firmly pressing down on all the keys... reset breaker and try again... if it still faults then you are going to have a bad touch pad... be warned though the touch pad does have a ribbon cable that connects to the control coard and it is possible it has shorted control/display board as well... hope this helps you out ...appliance servicer for 18 years
Hello, the F1 error code means internal logic failure (monitoring function) it sounds alarm and inhibit cook mode You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC)
F7 error code means the function key shorted for over 16 seconds, check for something pressing a key or preventing normal release of the key. You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC) if other component check normal.
Dim display is TOTALLY independent of F7 error.
The display will dim as the display board capacitors wear out - due to the heat. Replace the capacitors on the display board (see my other posts) and your be able to see the F7 error code as bright as can be!
F7 error code occures due to A = Function pad button stuck or B = Bad clock Unstick button or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
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. Good Luck!! Thanks
F7 stands for a faulty touch pad, faulty clock or both. Usually it's the touch pad. Most manufacturers recommend replacing both of the components. First, because they make more money that way, and second, it's the easiest (although more expensive) way to fix this problem. If you'd rather try and save some $$$, you can perform the following test and hopefully identify which of the two components needs to be replaced.
Disconnect the power to the oven before performing any repairs. Something triggers the clock to display F7 error code. You can unplug the touch pad from the clock and see if F7 comes back on. If it does, the clock is bad. If it does not, the touch pad is bad.
Hope this helps,
