Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
S/n XC h 39 29008 Microwave Hood combination Unit mfg 1998, Has bee trouble free, but had been getting a bit noisy.
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.

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.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

first you gotta detach the button plate ( the thing with all the buttons) using a flathead screwdriver .Keep pushing it is stuburn. It will pop back in when you are done. the fuse is behind that. just take it out and put the new one in.
