Hi,

This is a bad error. It refers to microwave relay failure.Check the wiring to relay for short circuits.If wiring is OK, you need to replace control board.

Sometimes it is due to stuck relay.With the door open unplug the microwave oven. Then whack ( light ) on either side of the keypad a couple of times. That might fix the error. ( usually this is done by tech's ).

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

ERROR CODE F6 SOUNDS LIKE IT RUNNING. UNPLUGGED IT AND PLUGGED IT IN AND WHEN I SHUT THE DOOR SAME OLE


Hello lyle,

The reason your microwave comes up with the error code f6 is simply because there is a shortened key, also know as a bad relay. I bet you have a kenmore microwave oven there.

It will act like it is about to start working, sometimes, the tray would roll inside the oven, but will not work.

You need to check wiring to relay 4903 for short circuit, then correct the short circuits you seen.

Hope this helped you.
All the best.

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.

"F6" on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board.

For model MH7140XFQ0 the control circuit board would be part number 4393919, which you can order from the Pros here for $132.23.

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.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) take out the old board, then move the new circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

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.

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 hood combo Model # 66569689992 F6 error code?


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.
