JTP56CODICC - GE Profile Double Oven
For a couple of years now my oven control panel has on and off flashed error code F7. I have cycled the power to temporarily fix it. I have also removed the front panel to control board ribbon cable at the control panel and reset it. This most of the time fixed it for a month or more.
1) Anything I can do to fix it?
2) Is it a common problem with this unit?
3) Also the model number:JTP56CODICC does not show up on the parts list just a shortened version JTP56C. What number should I use if I order?

F7 is almost always a stuck key on the touch panel, to verify this is the cause, clear the f7 by pressing clear, disconnect ribbon cable if f7 comes on again after about 2 minutes it is the electronic control, if it does not come back it's the keypanel.

Thanks. If I re-seat the ribbon cable and cycle the control boardd power the oven works fine sometimes for many weeks. Has anyone looked into the absolute reason for the failure? Is it the connection to the board or a sticky key? Is oven heat a factor since it is above the door? The most important question is does it happen once replaced or is it a component design flaw that has been rev.'d out.

I can't tell you honestly that it would not happen again, things break. On the new ovens the cooling fan turns on when you start bake and continues to run well after baking is complete to keep the temp down in the control area, so yes heat is an issue for this happening. Look at the fan in the control area, and if there is a screen there, remove it. I usually just use a screwdriver and push it out, just be careful not to break the fan blade. I have done exactly what you have done, by reseating the ribbon, it does usually work for about a month.
