Error code F6

When the power cord is plugged in while the door is open, the screen shows the colon and the time can be put in. However, when the door is closed while the power cord in in, the F6 appears and the microwave is heating the liquid (humming, normal sound) but the turntable is not working.

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.

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.

Controlpanel flashes f 3


You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

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.

Code F6, E0, "Communication Error"


Hi. this code represents a key pad or control board malfunction. you will have to make sure the key pad or control panel connectors are connected tightly and securely. If the wires and connectors are secure, the actual control board may be faulty and you will need to replace it at this point.

Mh1150xmt-0 whirlpool f6 error code


I had this same error. It appeared to be a stuck relay. With the door open, unplug the microwave. Then whack on either side of the keypad a couple times. This fixed mine.

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

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.
