SOURCE: GE Profile F7 Error Code
I'm not sure what your problem is, but I have the same one. My stainless steel glass top model ?? is beeping all the time with error f7 on all the 4 tem control readouts. I'm guessing this is your problem as well. By turning the temp knobs it will stop, but sometimes restarts later for no reason. Other sites mention a ribbon cable on the touch controls (if yours has it, mine does ) that must be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. You turn off the power, and after unlocking the cable you clean the contacts with an easer and a q-tip w/rubbing alcohol. I don't know if this works but I might try it as the beeping is driving me crazy! The service techs will try and sell you about $450 in parts to fix the problem. This problem apparently has plagued these units for almost 10 years. Seems heat makes the cable get shorts at the contacts.
I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS YET so beware, but I had a short in my microwave and the site helped me fix a $500 control board for about 15 cents ( jumped a short on the board with a small wire!) Hope you get your problem fixed.

On a GE range oven F7 indicates either a function pad button is stuck or the clock on the oven is malfunctioning

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.
In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.
Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:
The F1 code indicates that:
a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.
b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.
Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.
1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.
