Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

I am so sorry that you have this issue because this is quite a major problem. Your main control board has likely shorted but there is really no way to know for certain. The first thing you want to do is just turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset. If not, F6 E0 means there is a communication error between the main control board and the interface control board. You can definitely uninstall the oven and remove the top panel to look around and make sure all the wires are secure, but that's about all you can do as far as diagnosing this problem. Aside from that, F6 E0 is the worst issues you can get on this model because there is no way to test which part is actually faulty so you basically have to guess which control board you want to replace first. That is why it's usually better to call a technician because he can actually return the parts he doesn't need if it doesn't fix the issue---whereas you can not. If you wanted to try to replace the parts yourself, I would recommend ordering the parts from because they are one of the few places that allow you to return control boards.
