Kitchenaid Oven Error Codes

Kitchenaid Oven Error Code F6/E1

Encountering the F6/E1 error code on your KitchenAid oven indicates an issue with excessive heat during Bake or Broil modes, demanding a thorough investigation for a seamless cooking experience.

Error Description:

The F6/E1 error code signifies the oven’s temperature rising beyond recommended levels during baking or broiling, prompting a systematic approach to identify and address the underlying cause.

Potential Causes:

Element Short Circuit:

If an oven element heats up even when the oven is off, suggesting a short circuit to the metal cabinet, replacement of the affected element is necessary.

Overheating During Use:

When overheating occurs exclusively during oven operation, disconnect electrical power from the oven. Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before proceeding.

Visibly Damaged Elements:

Inspection of bake or broil elements is crucial. If visual damage is detected, replacement becomes essential for optimal oven performance.

Electronic Oven Control Board:

If the elements appear intact, the next consideration is the electronic oven control board. If the board is deemed faulty, replacement is recommended to rectify the F6/E1 error.

Troubleshooting Steps:

Element Replacement:

If a short circuit to the metal cabinet is evident, replacing the affected bake or broil element is the initial step.

Cooling Period:

After disconnecting electrical power, allow the oven to cool to room temperature. This ensures a safe environment for further inspection and potential repairs.

Inspecting Elements:

Visually examine bake and broil elements for any signs of damage. If damage is observed, replacement is advised for efficient operation.

Electronic Oven Control Board Replacement:

Should the F6/E1 error persist after inspecting and addressing the aforementioned issues, replacing the electronic oven control board is recommended for a comprehensive resolution.
