JTP56CODICC - GE Porfile Double Wall Oven - Error(F7)
I too have been shot in the foot once again by the shotty designs of the appliance
companies. I have already had issues with my Sharp microwave display and my Kitchenaid
dishwasher control module. This oven issue has been an issue for me for better than a
year now. I have been removing the ribbon cable to clean and re-set it then cycle the
power. This usually fixes the problem for a few weeks or a even few months. I too am a EE
but have had limited time to spend on it and did not purchase the control board or the
module since I am not convinced it is a permanent fix. I also wounder if the panel
sitting above the door has something to do with the failures. I have been asking my wife
use the lower oven to reduce the heating effects on the panel and module. I'd like to
know your fix if you could be kind enough to share it.

Powerman: Well I was a skeptic but followed your directions. I wasn't able to insert the paper as far into "box" as I would have liked. Nonetheless, it's been working perfectly for three weeks now. My hat is off to you! Many Thanks

Another satisfied fixer
Powerman gets my "Wins The Internets" vote for the day.
Fix worked like a charm.
Not completely out of the woods yet, but I'm going to put the oven through a clean cycle to see what comes out on the other end. Haven't used the oven for around two months. Put off the fix even though I've known about it for six weeks. Should have done it the day I found the link. So simple!
Seriously, took less than 10 min to complete and most of that time was spent finding and cutting down the right piece of paper.
Thanks again. Much appreciated for sharing your knowledge.

Thank you so much Powerman, the fix is in, folks, Man that just saved me over 500 bucks, the estimate from the parts replacer, to fix the problem, the Fix, worked instantly, after years, of trouble, and hundreds of dollars in repairs, from repair companies, the fix that worked, may have cost, about 20 cents, in supplies.
We were thinking about just replacing both units, upper and lower, at a cost of over 4 thousand bucks, wow, is all I can say, God bless you Powerman, may you live long and prosper...

Thank you, Powerman!!!
I also want to extend my thanks to Powerman. The solution works beautifully for my oven too! Before the fix, the problem is so consistent that F7 will appear persistently after I plug in the power to my oven. Now it is gone. Material cost: a slice of paper, 0 cents.
Thank you, Powerman, again.

I tried the paper trick and still got the error code. I'll unplug the cable and see if the error comes back. If it does then a new ERC may be in the works (ouch ) .

Ok, keep us posted, and post your model# of your range/oven for the ERC that goes on your model.

My model number is the JT912B0F1BB single wall oven. It’s about 8 years old.
This morning I awoke to the F7 error again. I pulled the cable out of the controller and re-powered the unit. The clock is flashing but so far no F7 code. Is the flashing clock an indicator the cable is unplugged?
Ahh an update! After I hit submit the thing started to beep! Let me go read the code.... F0 now. I believe that is also a button stuck error. Looks like a controller is in my future. Anyone sell these cheap?
