The error code E9-6 is for "latch both lower", which, when translated to English, means "both lower latches".
Here is the Maytag Gemini fault page:

Actually, this excerpt from explains your situation:
Still delighted with the Gemini, but I experienced my first error code this week. Sunday night, the range started beeping like crazy. Across the clock display a message scrolled saying that the oven had an F9-3 error. None of the booklets that came with the range explained the error codes, so I searched on the internet and found the F9-3 code had something to do with a lower latch (which I assumed meant the latch on the oven). I did not phone the telephone number scrolling across the display. Instead I phoned my reliable appliance store, where I have purchased all my major appliances for years.

I spoke with the repair person on Monday. He verified that the F9-3 code did mean the latch on the oven. He came out the same day and reviewed the situation. A latch assembly needed to be ordered. He said I could still use the oven but that if the latch locked, it might not open again until after the repair. I didn't like the idea of food being trapped in the oven ... so instead I used my trusty T-Fal Avante Elite Toaster Oven.

On Wednesday, the repair person came to the house with the part and fixed the oven. It took less than a half hour for the repair. The part list price is $80.00, and my kind repair person sold it to me for $59.95. The same day, I baked rolls in the top voen, and I baked a chicken pot pie (made from scratch!) in the lower oven, and the ovens work great.

UPDATE - December 12, 2008

I thought you would like to know that this oven is still working great! We are incredibly pleased with it. Other than what I have already mentioned, there have been no issues with this appliance.
Obviously, she got the F9-3 and F9-6 codes mixed up, but that looks like what you need.

Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Purchased at Maytag Gemini MER6770 in 2000. It

Sounds like the cancel (or stop) button is making contact by itself. Clock (oven control board) may need replacement.
One option to buy it new, your part number is 12001661
Coupon "New10" chops 10% off.
Another is to send the clock to be rebuilt. Google "stove timer rebuild", you'll find plenty of companies which can repair your original clock. In case you need it, the original part number is 74004542.
To get to the clock, remove the back of the control panel. Good luck.

How do i clean the top of my gemini stove

Use Baking Soda and water and form a paste. Use this to clean the top of your stove. If food is really baked on, you might also consider using a single blade razor to scrape the mess off. Rinse well.
