Every 3 to 4 years I get the F7 error for my GE oven and I clean the control panel circuit board (plastic ribbon connector contact strip at the end....also clean carefully tge metal contacts) connector using alcohol and cotton swabs......and I'm good for another 3 to 4 years....

On my range, the ceramic top lifts off on the front side. There are two clips about an inch or two from the left and right edge on the ceramic cook top, in the front. You pry up on the front and using a screwdriver you push in on the clip on each side and it will pop loose. The lid is hinged in the back, so you carefully lift up and slide it back, and it will sit there on the hinge. Once that was off, I just took the bolts off of the inner control panel mount from the inside of the cooktop area, and pulled it out. Disconnect the ribbon cable, which is a little finicky, and then you have the control surface plate.......mine has the plastic film over the circuit board. I just peeled it off, to do the work I described above. You have to be extremely careful not to damage the components or cable. , and also make sure the range is unplugged. Burner connections and wiring is all 120V, so it would hurt to get zapped.

F7 codes and continuous beeping. This is a common problem with that type of Amana control. The control panel has a design problem I think, and it gets dirty and worn over time. I have replaced mine once, and it happened again less than 2 years later. I took the control panel out, and inspected it. I found a web solution, that said to shim the control panel out away from the housing slightly because it rubs on the metal around the opening and damages the control board contacts. I could see little scratch marks on the plastic skin around the edge of the button area, so that made sense. I tried that, and it still did not work.

Mine seemed to be the timer control buttons that were going on and off. So, I took it out again, and actually peeled the control surface membrane off of the control board. No going back now, I thought. I got it off and looked at the control panel. It looked fine, but there was a lot of gunk and wear marks around the edge of the button area. I cleaned it up with alcohol swabs, and put the cover back on the board. All of the printed circuit looked fine.....no damage or broken contact points. It was also still sticky enough to go back on. I reinstalled it, and "bingo" no more problem. It has been fine for 3 months now. Yahooo! I think the adhesive on the panel membrane gets warm and melts a little, and then fouls the contacts under the buttons, or causes them to stick on.

I am getting error codes "F7" and "d9" F7 is a well-documented issue, but I cannot find any information on d9. Any advice?
