Red face F6 Error
Model Number: RBD276PDB8   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My oven errors F6 80% of the time now - it only happened maybe once or twice in the last year and lately it's all the time. Once it errors it will eventually shut down and the entire front panel goes dark until the lights come back and that's when it shows the F6 Err.
How would I know if I need the control panel, control board or both?

Here your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL RBD276PDB8 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is a tech sheet could not find one for a PDB8 so the closest match I could find is PDB9
http://www.servicematters.com/docs/w...%204451887.pdf

With some luck you may not need any parts.
Try the below
Unplug the unit
Open it up
Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the control board.
Clean the edge connector.
If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink eraser as it is too abrasive.
Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying glass helps here.
Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
Reconnect everything and give it a try.

OK, we did as recommended and we are still getting errors. Actually it will error out E6 F2 when it's sitting idle. I'll be in the other room and hear the beep....beep, beep, beep error sound and then there's the codes displayed. Within the hour I can go over and hit the one of the oven off buttons and it will clear.
My question is, they offer a control panel and the control board on the parts list, is there a way to know which I need to replace - both very costly!
thanks for your help

It is pretty hard to tell because they do not supply a pin-out of the control panel so you cannot check it.

The tech sheet does say that if you press Cancel and the error reoccurs in 60 seconds replace the keypad.

If it is happening at random intervals then I would probably try the control board first.

Sorry but that is the best I can do.
Perhaps someone else has a way to check this out.

You are welcome, just wish I had better info for you.

I personally hate replacing a part unless I am sure that it is the problem device but sometimes all you can do is narrow the odds.
