Re: beeping, f0 reading
Judy, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, F0 indicates a failed thermister control. The solution is to replace the Electronic Relay Control (ERC, sometimes called a "clock"). F7 can be one of two things, 1.) Failed keypad or 2.) Failed ERC. Since you have F0 AND F7 error codes, you'll be looking at replacing the ERC.
These are extremely pricey, unfortunately. You'll need to get the entire model number and serial number. These are located at the bottom of your oven... pull the drawer out and you'll see the data tag down there. After you have those numbers, call your local appliance parts retailer for a price. It'll be around $175, just for the ERC.
I would this that it is more likely that the f0,f7 codes are more indicative of a defective touchpad.Both of these codes can be caused by shorted circuits in the touchpad. We actually rebuild electronic range controls ( among other things)

To my understanding error code F1 would indicate a faulty control board, possibly thermistor control. The only recourse is to have this replaced.
This of course would require a fair familiarity of electrical/electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Well I feel your pain. I have the same machine and we had a winter storm about 3 weeks ago and had a power outage too. When I went to reset my answering machine it shows a F0 code which I can't find out what it means either. I also have tried everything, nothing works, none of the buttons respond and all i get is the F0 error code and constant beeping. I am still trying desperately to find a cure for this. Like you I'm afraid the power surge fried something. The manual gave one number which is 1-800-222-3111, I called and they couldn't help me because this was an old discontinued model. Grrrr...
I can give you the web site to get a copy of your manual that you can print or read:
If you find a cure for this please post it. I love this machine and think it is so much better than most of whats out there. I don't want to have to replace it but need to do something soon. Good luck, Barb
Hi There I have the coed for you to read and hope this is helpful for you.And let me know how it goes.
F0 or F7
Key due to membrane switch, control or connector
panel membrane switch; Check Electronic Range Control (ERC)Thank you for writing to fix ya. Best Regards Richard
F0 - F1 - F7
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.
Appu, the F0 error for this built in means there is a shorted or stuck off key. Sometimes this can be resolved by removing the keypad ribbon cable from the board and cleaning the ends with an eraser. If that doesn't work, you want to find out whether its the board or keypad by ohming the ribbon cable, 3 to 4, probes on the conductor side...should read 125 to 1750 ohms while pressing the off key.
