Whirlpool 6 sense f6


Normally the F6 code means a shorting cook relay. That can be repaired for $39.95 in most cases.
But it would be best if we knew your full model number from the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.

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.

How to resolve the F6 E0 error code on the built-in Kitchenaid microwave oven? The unit was brand new and installed 2 and half years ago in my new house. One website mentions the description for this...


"F6" on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted cook relay on your control board, which I can repair. Details here.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

While using the Bake Potatoe setting the code F6 came up on the display and the light went out and the machine was making a humming noise.


F6 on a Whirlpool microwave means your cook relay has shorted.

We can repair that with our $39.95 service (details here) or you can order a new control circuit board from the Pros here.

It wasnt working at no display nothing, i took down and cleaned real good now im getting a F6 code


Funny that a cleaning would revive a totally dead microwave! Never would have guessed. On microwaves manufactured by whirlpool, F6 apparently means "Microwave relay failure. Check wiring to relay 4903 for short circuits."
Talk to your local service shop and see if they will replace a microwave relay... they should be able to give you a parts and labour estimate before they begin so you will know what you are in for.

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');

Midway through heating my lunch, my microwave started making a funny noise and "F6" came up on the display. Now I can't get it to work. What does this mean and how do I fix it?

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.

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.
