  • F7 / F0 Error

    Aug 3, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Worked great for a while and looks nice.
    Cons: Poorly built internal component and no backing from GE

    Summary: Our JTP56 is about 7-8 years old. When we bought our house 3 years ago the oven wouldn't self clean. It would go for a few hours and then lock up. You had to shut off the power to the oven and wait several hours for it to cool down so it would unlock ... read more

  • Very average quality

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Maybe okay if you don't use an oven for cooking very often
    Cons: Control panel failure; display panel went dark.

    Summary: I bought a newly constructed home in the late '90s and the builder installed GE Profile appliances. The oven and dishwasher both had control panel failures when they were only about 2 years old and I had to pay for them to be fixed since I didn't have an ... read more

  • Major lemon! No more GE for me.

    Jul 19, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looked good initially (before unsightly moisture got between the glass and couldn't be cleaned).
    Cons: With a 15 word maximum, I cannot possibly list all the cons. 

    Summary: I am also having the beeping with the F7 error message with my GE JTP56 Double Oven.  This has been the biggest lemon of an oven.  While it was still under warranty, they could not figure out how to fix it so they replaced it.  With ... read more

    Pros: Love having a double oven and the convection is nice.
    Cons: Acts insane after a short time

    Summary: We purchased this double wall item brand new when we built our house. Worked great at first. Then it would start beeping for no reason and show an F7 error. At first it clearing it would stop it. Then after a while you could only get it to stop if you ... read more

  • F7 error code on GE oven JTP56

    Mar 29, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: works most of time and does a good job cooking, self-cleaning, and has convection.
    Cons: warranty is only one year.

    Summary: This review is mainly how I have avoided needing to buy a new oven, by fixing a recurrent problem, that is, an F7 error code. When the F7 code cannot be cleared, the only function that works is the clock display - no keypad functionality - so you ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice.
    Cons: You'll spend a fortune maintaining it.  GE Quality and support SUCKS!!!

    Summary: Just look at the number of posts on this topic and you'll see it's not that just I got a lemon.  This is the pathetic quality you can expect from GE with no support from them either.  I had to replace the control unit on our GE Profile double ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: Most unreliable appliance ever owned

    Summary: Have had issues with the oven since the first month.  Repaired under warranty several times then we paid for the parts for many years.  Worst was when it started to self clean on its own, wouldn't unlock or stop, had to turn off circuit ... read more

    Pros: Convection
    Cons: Lots of repairs.

    Pros: I though GE was a recognizable brand and company.  I guess not !
    Cons: I will not buy another GE product again.

    Summary: Well, we built our first home and always wanted a double oven (D/O).  Now that we got it, the D/O is almost 3 years old and started the F7 and E9 error.  I don't understand it.    I bearly used it, just for special ocasions like ... read more

    Pros: Did you say "Pros"????
    Cons:  15 word maximum is a joke.  This product should be recalled.

    Summary: I thought I was losing my mind and then I read all the reviews...this unit is a dud! We researched wall ovens when we built our home 10 years ago and unfortunately chose this product.  I cannot rely on the temperature-ever!  Forget the ... read more

    Pros: Worked well as an oven
    Cons: Three strikes and you're out

    Summary: We have had the GE double oven since moving into our new home in 2000. In 2005 I replaced the Control Panel Assembly because it failed. Then again in the winter of 2008 it failed again and I replaced it. Each time I could see where the ribbon wire was ... read more

    Pros: None that I can see.
    Cons: Very costly and expensive to repair. The most unreliable oven ever.

    Summary: Constant repair problems, always with the expensive electronics. Our double oven is 8 years old and we have spent almost $1,000 on repairs, all with the electronics (control panel & display). This is an example of a company that once made ... read more

    Pros: It baked at first!
    Cons: Repetitive problems and no backing from GE.

    Summary: I have been so frustrated with this very same problem. Several f7's and several repairman visits. This is absolutely ridiculous! After reading all of your complaints, I am tempted to take legal action. I have never heard of a company that makes ... read more

    Pros: we liked the oven, except for the continual F7 error that popped up
    Cons: good oven except for this chronic DESIGN issue

    Summary: First shut off the power. Remove the three hex screws under the control panel (you must open the door to get to them). the control panel can then be rotated out (there is a tab at the top). remove the small black tab that locks the ribbon cable in ... read more

    Pros: NONE

    Cons: F7 error problem

    Summary: Initially I really liked this oven, when purchased new in May 2002. However, the dreaded F7 error occured in 2006. We had a local repairman come out and clean & reseat the ribbon cable behind the touch panel. Well, this lasted for about 6 months. ... read more

    Pros: It looks good but ends there!
    Cons: Won't last you more than 5 years max.

    Summary: It is amazing that GE can sell this product and not be brought into the court room. After 4 1//2 years I received the F7 error after using the self cleaning oven feature. When I phoned GE the customer service department mentioned that if you use the self ... read more
