Ok, hopefully, this is the answer for f6e0 Microwave/Conv Oven KEMS378. Lost Communication err F6E0. Could to be a loose connection to the top control panel. Remove the top facia panel, unscrew the control panel and access the plastic connectors behind it. Checking the connections/reseating the plastic connectors got it working. Not forgetting to switch off the main breaker first!!


If this doesn't work, I advice you to call your local service agent and ask for a "Quote" for the repair.

F6 E6 error code?


Hi,

This fault is a communication error at the appliance manager, could be a loose wire or a bad display transformer, either way you will need a certified technician to fix this issue, there is no simple plug and go issue to resolve. I personally found the problem to be the transformer not send voltage to the appliance manager. This is solvable but needs someone who understand electronics to correct this issue.

F6 E0 Oven user interface - lost communication E6 Oven appliance manager 1 (upper, single) - lost communication

This is directly from the tech sheet of your oven and directly from the factory web site.

Good Luck

Shortly after end of 1 year warranty, KEMS378SSS04 began displaying F6E0 Lost Communication on lower over UI (not on the microwave). Turning power off/on (multiple times required sometimes) fixes the...


Hi,

Below is the complete instruction sheet.

You are having a communication error between the appliance. Here is the actual tech manual instructions for that code:

PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter Diagnostic

mode and verify the error codes. Ensure AM software, UI software and EEPROM

CHECKSUM versions appear on the lower text line. If AM software and EEPROM

versions do not appear, UI and AM may not be communicating. Verify this for the

lower oven UI and for the microwave (upper oven) UI. The lower oven UI will show

the AM software version for the lower oven appliance manager, and the microwave

UI will show the AM software and EEPROM versions for the microwave appliance

manager.

If the lower oven UI is not displaying the AM software version, go to UI IS NOT

DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION.

If the upper oven UI is not displaying the AM software and EEPROM versions,

go to UPPER OVEN UI IS NOT DISPLAYING THE AM SOFTWARE AND

EEPROM VERSIONS.

If lower oven UI and microwave UI are both displaying an error, go to LOWER

OVEN UI AND MICROWAVE UI ARE BOTH DISPLAYING AN ERROR.

UI IS NOT DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION:

A. Unplug oven or disconnect power.

B. Open the back panels and make sure the P6 and P2 connectors are fully

inserted on the appliance manager and on the lower oven user interface board.

- If they are not plugged in, plug in connectors and go to step F.

- If they are plugged in, go to step C.

C. Visually inspect all wires between P6 on the appliance manager and P2 on the

lower user interface.

- Make sure wires are not cut or pinched.

- If the wires appear to be intact, perform a continuity check between

P6-1 of the appliance manager and P2-1 of the user interface board.

Complete for P6-2(AM) to P2-2(UI), P6-4(AM) to P2-4(UI) and P6-5(AM) to

P2-5(UI). All the measurements made should be less than 5 ?. If any of

these measurements exceeds 5 ?, go to step E.

D. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

E. Replace the wiring harness (signal). Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

F. Replace all parts and panels before operating.

G. Plug in oven or reconnect power.

H. Observe for longer than 1 minute to determine if error has been repaired.

I. If error does not appear, initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run for at least

1 minute.

- If no error occurs, cancel the cycle, the problem has been repaired.

- If error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.

At step D, replace the lower oven user interface board if appliance

manager has already been replaced.
- If both are replaced the problem has been repaired.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

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

What can i do please tell me i cant start the micro wave oven it show E-10 .& I DONT START IT


Hello,

Sounds like you have a bad control, try unplugging the microwave for one min and plugging it back in. if this does not clear the error code the board will need to be replaced, we can walk you through the necessary steps.

I have a kitchen add KGSS907 it is showing an error message F6E0 lost communications how do I correct this


F6 E0 means the switch pulse return line to the electronic control is not connected

The usual way to correct this is to replace the electronic control (clock).

You might want to check for loose or burnt out wires on the clock unit before replacing tho'.

We installed kitchen aid microwave convection oven model kems308. it is displaying error code F6E0, "Lost communication". Any idea on how to fix?


Turn the power to the oven off. It usually is not possible to unplug the power chord for the built-in appliances so go to the main switch board and just turn off the oven power for about 5 minutes and then turn on the switch. The error code should disappear. Mine did!

F6E0


Last night I saw the lights in the house flicker momentarily... This morning, I turned the oven on, set it to Bake and within a few seconds, the control panel reported error code “F6 E0” then shut the oven off. The control panel also reported "Lost communication...". I read on another site that this code may require replacing the control panel itself. Apparently, the momentary power fluctuation wasn't large enough to damage the electronics (since the control panel still works), but was significant enough to confuse the electronics controlling the oven. To fix the oven, I simply turned the 30 AMP breaker for the oven off for about 5 minutes. When I turned it back on, the oven worked just fine. Solution #1 recommends taking off the control panel, which voids the warranty. It's more likely that it was fixed just by cycling power to the oven via the breaker.
