What is the complete model number?

How much did you pay for this microwave?

Default Did you ever resolve your problem?

I have a Kenmore Micro with the same F6 problem! I see 2 requests for help on this site but no resolutions for either one.

Check this....
F6 Microwave relay failure
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.

2.
Check wiring to Relay 4903 for short circuits.

3.
If wiring is OK, replace electronic control.

4. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power

This is on a Whrilpool microwave, which who made the 665 model you have.

While I was waiting, I took off the panel, found the tech book, and inside it says an F6 is a relay failure.
How do I Check wiring to Relay 4903 for short circuits? Where is relay 4903. Sorry, I am a software architect, just trying to learn....

I took off the key panel, found the 4903 relay label on the diagram, but cannot find the relay on the board. Any suggestions?

Default F6 Fault all fixed

I took off the panel, found the relay, tightened up the connection, put the panel back on, and Voila! I have a working microwave again, thanks!
