Microwave oven. When shutting the door the light and engine will not go off. In the screen it says -F6-.
Do you have the make and model number for the microwave?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Model #66560652000, Make is mocrowave hood combination.
That is a control board failure, how old is the oven?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
10 years.
OK, I tried looking up the part and it is no longer available. Th e only two options you have are to return the part for repair, which can be costly and time consuming, or replace the microwave. I would suggest replacing it. The cost of a new microwave is anywhere between $300 to $600 depending on model and options.

Why can the microwave not be turned off.
The error indicates a shorted relay on the board. This relay has most likely shorted out and keeping it on.
