Question and Answers


We have a Kenmore Model #68600 Microwave Hood combination and it will not work and displaying code F6?


The F6 does indicate that you have a relay failure in that microwave. Here is the advice provided in that previous answer link from Barbara H. in the previous response:

The F6 error code indicates that the control board detects a microwave relay failure. The internal wiring will need to be checked. If the wiring is okay to the relay, then the control board will need to be replaced. A technician will be needed for this type of internal component repair on the microwave. Internal capacitors on the microwave can still retain a charge even when the unit is unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed using the proper equipment following this type of repair. I recommend calling a service technician to repair this failure.

Based on the likely age of this microwave, I recommend that you consider replacing it instead of having it repaired. Here is a link for a current microwave model at a good price: Kenmore Stainless Steel 30 in. Microhood Combination - 8503

Ran microwave 20 + minutes with nothing inside.


Thank you for your question.

If the microwave is run without food in the cavity, it can damage the magnetron. I recommend having a service technician come out and check the unit over. There is a chance the finish inside of the cavity was compromised. I am sorry, but we do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. That's why I strongly warn you to have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME.

Depending on the age and the condition, you might consider purchasing a new microwave. Please click here to see the units we offer now.

Normally at we like to help you with all of your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous.We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.
