Have JTP56B "O" or zero D1BB double oven installed in Mar 2002; cost $1700.

I too have the F-7 virus.  Joke around here is everyone watching me run to the basement, turn off the breaker, count to 30, turn breaker on and then run like blazes back to the kitchen.  If the clock is blinking, I have a chance at getting the oven to work.  If not, it's back to the marathon again, again, again. Finally, its the 24-48 hour shutdown.

Dinner around here has turned into a sideshow where food is the variable.

Talk about Oven Rage! :rocketman:

What I can't understand is why a state or federal govt official (atty. general) hasn't taken on GE for the sake of the consumer.  I look at all the posts here and we're talking some Serious money!  Someone out there must have the knowledge and the 'force' to get this going.  I know this little lady, all 98 lbs of me, would gladly jump on the band wagon.

No one has mentioned the special "Proof" feature.  When it took me 2 - 3 x's longer to proof my bread (tried 3 times) I called GE service as unit was then under warranty. Tech came out.  Oven wouldn't set at 100 degrees.  Proof didn't seem to work although we both noticed that the oven light came on.  Tech contacted his 'magic' GE number and you won't believe this one.....the Oven Light is the 'Proof" feature!  It is supposed to provide heat of 80 to 100 degrees which, of course, it doesn't.  Heat lamp in the bathroom works better than this.

Trying to get control panel part but RepairClinic.com is out of stock. Wonder why?!!

Another thought, turn the ovens into a storage pantry and cook over an open fire like Granma did. 

Thanks for listening guys!:kiss:

Surely the Force is with you madinct for you have pointed out there seems to be a lot of JTP5600s out there with bad touch pads and/or ERCs. You probably need both but you'll need to do the disconnect test to be sure. True it is, GE, discovered how to turn manufacturing inferior products, into a profitable business, they have. They make money when they sell these appliances to builders and they made more money selling expensive replacements parts to the homeowners. Why should they make them better? I watch them put out the same defective products year after year.

It is finally starting to catch up to them. I'm seeing some people who bought houses with those crappy 2001 model refrigerators get brand new (improved?) refrigerators at little or no cost in 2006 thanks to the hard work of people like our friends at bringgoodthingstolife.org. All 98 lbs of you needs to have a good look at their site. Perhaps it was the Force that guided you here and now there.

Interesting story about the poof feature. I haven't had that complaint yet. Of course most of my customers make reservations for dinner. Many years ago a somewhat common complaint (on any oven) was that the oven was always warm. This was always because someone left the oven light switch on.

Thanks, Jedi Master.  Went to the site and sent message to the warriors against GE.

Urge all with the F7 virus to do the same.  All voices united make a reverberating noise.

From what I come away with all of this is this (correct me if I'm wrong) F7 ,disconnect ribbon,if I get F0 and no F7 that cable is defective.all the F0 is saying no communication between cable and ERC (normal) and if no F7,then the cable  is defective.If I get F7 then I have a defective ERC.

Does ERC=Electronic clock control kit (item # 875280)? I ordered both this, and the Touch pad and control assembly from repairclinic.com after speaking to the sales rep on the phone. Will installation be relatively simple?
