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.
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.
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:

After disconnecting electrical power, allow the oven to cool to room temperature. This ensures a safe environment for further inspection and potential repairs.
Visually examine bake and broil elements for any signs of damage. If damage is observed, replacement is advised for efficient operation.
