    the hard reset does not clear the problem. The F6 is still displayed. The oven also seems to be on as soon as the door is closed. The inside light is not on, but food will heat up while the F6 code is displayed.

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.

    For most brands, F6 is caused by a missing AC timing pulse to the control board. But that would not cause this problem.

    So you may have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount, a shorted relay on the control board, or maybe a shorted pad on the keypad.

    If you or someone you know wants to look into this, I'd be happy to exchange a few e-mails or phone calls to help you or them narrow this down or even solve it.

    I'm at prototech@usa.net if you'd like to contact me directly.

    When you write, please refer to your exact Kenmore model number, the F6 code, and the fact that it runs when the door is closed.

    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.

Displaying error F6. What does this mean?


It would depend on the full model number of your oven.

If it has a 721 prefix, it was made by Whirlpool (by LG) and has a stuck cook relay, which we can repair very simply for $39.95 in most cases.

So please post a new help request or contact me directly with your full model number and detailed symptoms.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

Displayed F6


Depending on the brand and model, F6 may mean a shorted cook relay on the circuit board.

This is especially true in most recent Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, and Kenmore models.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.


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 free information & help.

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

Kenmore Gas Range model # 362.75491990 F3 error Oven will not hold temp - error message displays and beeps I Replaced the oven temp sensor same issue Is the control panel bad?


Hi,

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect.

these are some other code error that will help you in case of next time.

  1. Step 1 Press "Off/Cancel" (or "Cancel/Off" depending on your model) to clear the error code. Note the code if it reappears.
  2. Step 2 Replace the touchpad if the code displayed is "F0," "F7" or "F10." A function key is stuck or shorted.
  3. Step 3 Replace the touchpad or the clock (ERC) if the code "F1" is displayed. Disconnect the ribbon connector to the touchpad. If no code is displayed after an hour, replace the touchpad. If the code displays again, replace the clock.
  4. Step 4 Replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.
  5. Step 5 Replace the ERC if "F5," F6" or "F8" is displayed. The ERC is the main control unit. "F5," F6" and "F8 are codes that indicate problems in the ERC functions.
  6. Step 6 Inspect the door-lock assembly and circuit if "F9" is displayed. The door must lock when the oven is in use. If the lock mechanism is not functioning or if the detection circuit is malfunctioning, the stove will display "F9."


jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); NOTE:


"F3" codes mean your oven temperature sensor has failed or shorted out. The only thing you can do is to replace the sensor.

Take care.

Error code d kenmore model 665.60654 microwave


The letter "d" is indicating the microwave is in a demo/learning feature.
To cancel the "demo" mode press and hold "Kitchen Timer" for 5 seconds. Two tones will sound and the small "d" will disappear from the display.

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond


My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

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.
