I already looked and can't locate it. However, I turned the cook top off and let it reset itself and it's working fine now.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! That error is shown on the attached page. It is shown as 1X6, the 5 is the burner position, in this case, the right front. So there was an issue with the RF burner heating for some reason. It is likely to return, so if you would like the service manual for your appliance, I am able to get that for you with a model number. The tag is on the bottom of the unit.
