Its well past what I would consider normal age for repair--some parts will not be available and frankly a lot of them the price for has also gone way down since 1998---you may if it is even possible to fix it be better to buy a new unit instead.

SOURCE: displays F6 error code, hums when you start it and the tray circulates when you open the door

Depending upon which make and model you have, F6 is the code for either relay failure or shorted tempurature probe.

SOURCE: Microwave won't work

F6 usually means a fault in the controller or keypad. You could try to unplug it for several minutes, then plug it back in. If it still fails, maybe you or a friend can disconnect the power cord, unplug the keypad strip internally, then plug the power cord back in and try it with the keypad still disconnected. If it does not fail again, you have a wet or shorted keypad and can dry it or order one. If it does fail again, the control board is bad. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Sorry I didn't get to answer this before the bogus answer was posted. I've been tied up and away from the PC.

SOURCE: error code F6

Please post back with your your full model number. It will be three digits, then a dot, then about eight more digits.

Once we have that, we can figure out who made it for Kenmore, then look up the F6 code.

Happy to help.

The first three digits of your model number are 665, which means it was made by Whirlpool.

On a Whirlpool, F6 means a fault on the control board, such as a timing error or a shorted relay.

A shorted relay could mean it is running when it shouldn't. Pleased don't allow it to do that for more than a few seconds, or other serious damage could occur.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it still fails, please leave it unplugged, and I would say you have a problem on your control panel assembly, which we repair for customers nationwide with our $39.95 service.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Microwave is humming when off display says F6


We had a power failure for 2+ hours. I went to defrost something when the power came back on. Somewhere along the line the F6 popped up. With the door closed it sounded like the machine was running.
I slapped the side too and it worked. I pulled the vent cover off to clean it and found the tech sheet stuffed in a bag inside. I found what F6 means. 'Microwave relay failure. Check wiring to relay 4903 for short circuits. If wiring is ok, replace control board' Then, of course, a whack on the side by the button panel worked
just as well. rek('_tx6');
Reference: It means the relay is stuck in the run position. Apparently if you slap the unit hard enough it will unstick the relay and allow it to work properly again. rek('_tx7');

Error code F65


That's what I thought, but I wanted to be sure.

F6 is a failure of the cook relay on the main control board.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I replaced the light bulb, now it displays -F6- and pushing any button causes a humming noise.


I left the unit unplugged over night, plugged it back in the next day and still had the same problem.

What does -F6- code stand for?


F6 means a problem in the control circuit board.
Try unplugging the microwave with the door open, then plug it back.
Try the solution that you find here, if it does not work the panel must be replaced.

Kenmore microwave


i fixed by unplugging the microwave with the door open. I plugged it back in and the F6 was gone. I was then able to set the clock and turn the light on/off . When I closed the microwave door, the F6 came back on and the microwave was making a humming noise. I slapped the side of the microwave near the keypad, and the F6 cleared from the readout and the humming stopped. The microwave is working fine now. Don't know why, except maybe slap on the side reset a relay or something. Anyway, I will never by a Sears Kenmore appliance for the rest of my life. The door rattles when you open a close it (like a part inside the door is broken) and this is the second time a fault code has appeared during use. I had GE Profile appliances at my last house, which are more $$ initial cost, but who wants to screw around buying a new microwave every four or five years. I'll happily spend a couple hundred more for the peace of mind and knowing that it will work during Thanksgiving dinner with the family over.

Error code


F6 is a communication error. It is either a loose connection to the control board, or the control board is shot. They should have diagnosed this when they came out to fix it. Open it up, and look for loose connections.
good luck
