Hi F6 refers to a bad relay in the control board. Take the grill out across the top and then remove the control panel. Disconnect the control board and give it a tap with your hand both sides to see if this dislodges the relay. If this fails to fix the F6 error you will need to replace the control board. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Mike
