Built in oven malfunction PLEASE HELP!

10 posts in this topic

I have a GE Electric Convenction built-in oven model #JTP18COD1CC

The display beeps for several minutes and then displays "F7" & all functions become locked/disabled. I followed the troubleshooting tips & disconnected all power and then reconnected with the same problem. Any suggestions? THANKS in advance

Thanks for the advice, but I imagine it is one or the other, how do I know if I should replace the ERC or the touchpad?

You can apply my proprietary component isolation technique:geek:

Thanks for your help, a couple more questions before I try this.  As I am somewhat handy, so I hope I can do this myself without calling out repair service.

1.  Is there a way to cut the power to the range besides the circuit breaker?

2.  What will the ribbon connector look like that needs to be disconnected? 

3.  I assume to get to the ERC, I just start unscrewing parts from the touchpad?

Thanks again:)

If it could beep and display "F7", the ERC is not likely to be bad.

So bad touchpad and/or poor connection could be the cause.

1.  On a wall oven, no.

2.  It's the only thing connecting the touchpanel to the ERC.

3.  Couple of screws on the bottom of the panel.  Piece of pie.  Cut power first.

I have changed a lot of ERCs and touch pads on GE ovens....it definitely sounds like a bad touch pad if it continues to beep and then goes to F7.

Well, I disconnected the ribbon connector, and no F7!  So, it looks like I will be purchasing a new touchpad.  Thanks so much for all your help appliance guru :banana:
