    That may be a shorted cook relay or keypad, but either can be repaired pretty easily.

    Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Okay, thanks.

Looking at the tech sheet, that would be a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board, which we can repair for you for $39.95 in about a week or so.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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

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

Getting an "F6" error on


HELLO.

An F6 error code typically indicates a controlpanel problem. Disconnect power and wait several minutes before plugging itback in. If the F6 error code comes back within a minute of restoring power,the control switch pulse return line is not connected properly. This willgenerally require professional repair.

Thanks.

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');

My Microwave is displaying F6 and running when plugged in.


I found a sheet that says to check wiring to main or microwave relay for shorts. If no shorts found, replace control board.

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.

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.

I'd bet the first three digits of your model are 665? That would make it a Whirlpool.

Either way, 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.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

It may be a problem (such as a missing timing pulse) on the control panel. We repair these.

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.
