I am working on a Frigidaire oven and F7 is displayed over

Customer Question

I am working on a Frigidaire oven and F7 is displayed over the control knobs of burners and none of the burners will work. The oven is working fine. Could it be the user interface board or the power board or the element controls?

A fault code F7 10 on the ESEC (Electronic Surface Element Control) of this model indicates that the ribbon keytail connection from a surface unit user interface control board is loose or disconnected, if the ribbon from the control to the board looks good, slip it out and try to clean it with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol if not the ribbon on the element control in question will prob need replaced.

basically it's a communication error between the surface element control and the board. So that is what you are looking for.
