F6 appears to be a relay failure on the main board, but it may be a door switch or door switch mount.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door hooks latch when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

Remove the face plate above the door. You will see two bolts where you can use a screwdriver to turn them (unlock them). Those bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave. Once you have turned them (you do not need to remove them), you will need to remove the one - three screws that come in from the cabinet above. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.

the top vent exhaust grill has two screws facing down-remove these. remove plastic vent. inside you will see a solid wire tringle assy. turn and pull this release.
warning if you have granite counters or tile, place plenty of material under it to stop the impact if oven gets away from you

Look in the cabinet above the microwave. You should see a vent if it is vented outside. You will need to remove the vent. Then look in the same area to find two screws that will need to be removed. Disconnect the power cord and have someone hold the bottom of the unit and remove the screws. It will fall at this point so hold it good. With the screws out and vent removed you will be able to let the front of the microwave down a little. This will allow you to now lift the back to release it from the channel hook in rear. Then you will see the mount plate on the wall. It should have screws securing it to the wall on stud locations. remove these screws and remove the wall plate. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Underneath the microwave, on the right & left hand corner sides at the back, there are levers that you pull down & it releases the mounting bracket.
