Jenn air range F7 error code

6 posts in this topic

Saw this morning.  Model Number: SVE47500W.    All buttons click & respond.  Pulled control board,  whole control board assembly was replaced by son, Purchased from Repair Clinic 12/2011, he must of lifted wiring sheet, it's missing from sheath.

 

Tried to pull ribbon from connector.  Never seen one that connects like this.  Lift 2 tabs on connector & ribbon separated from connection, seems to hook on 2 tabs on connection & you push down to lock in.   scrutinized gold ribbon ends & they seem kinda scratched  so I'm thinking new ribbon.

 

Pull Oven sensor & its wiring & connection is fried,  Pulled harness as far as I could into oven cavity, Completely fried with bare wires. Asked if customer used cleaned cycle recently,  responded started to but did not, has been a long while since she did.     The shorted/open sensor must be giving F7 code in my opinion.  How about someone else's opinion.

You could replace the sensor and the damaged wires and see if the oven control unit  notices the new sensor, I.E. no shorted key..............It needs to be replaced any way........................

I am going to replace the sensor,  can't find a harness replacement for the sensor to PCB.   Any suggestions what I can use to fabricate a connection.

Update: Ordered temp sensor & received it other day. Arrived this afternoon to install. Pulled range out, little difficult because downdraft exhaust fan pressed up against oven discharge shoot. Had to splice sensor wires to old sensor wire because connectors were not compatible. Probably should have soldered wires together, left solder iron back at shop trailer, used porcelain wire nuts.

Old sensor wiring was burnt to a crisp past connector plug along back side of oven. Before repair, having old sensor hanging in back of oven I turned on bake set to 300 degree. Oven Led showed 140 then flashed F7 & shut down. Pressed stop to clear error, then activated Broil which heated with no error. Stopped & reactivated Bake which heated for a few minutes then shut down with a F5 code. I realized oven was not sensing any temp.

Next I installed splice & set oven again to bake cycle. Temp display started registering oven temps. After rising to 175 F7 again. reset 2 more times then oven worked fine rising to 300 degree. I adjusted temp to 425 & it rose to that level. I shut down & turned breaker off then installed oven & fan back into counter. Oven cooled to 245 while reinstalling. Final bake set back up to 350 & pressed start. I also turned all four burners on, oven & surface burners worked great no code. Collected my check & elderly lady was very grateful especially after giving 10% discount.

Moral of story error codes not necessary what they are suppose to be, persistence & being thorough pays off. I is happy, another battle won with the help of Appliantology.org.
