Although fault code "F6E6" most often indicates a communication failure between the User Interface and Appliance Manager board (Service Pointer W10538518), it could also indicate an incorrect electrical connection at the customer's home junction box. Sounds like you have some wires crossed!

The only way to adjust the hinges is to replace the hinge it self but you have to replace both sides to get the right pull.You can go to www. searspartdirect.com and order 2 W10174285 hinges $21.90 each plus shipping.to put these on you have to remove the door and then separate the inner liner from the outer door.(its not hard) just sounds like it its only a couple of screws!!!

Hi, Check to see if there are any lights working, such as the ones that come on when you open the oven doors. If there is absolutely no power going to the unit, check the household circuit breaker panel that services the oven.
An oven works at 240 volts so the circuit breaker for it will be a double breaker, similar to the ones
electric water heaters or air conditioning units. It may have tripped. If it is tripped, then
the lever connecting the two sides of the breaker will not line up with other breaker switches in the
breaker panel. If that is the case, shut down the breaker completely and then after about 10 seconds,
turn it back on. If it will not stay on, there is an electrical problem in the circuit going to the oven or the oven itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if your need more help.

Here is a web blog pertaining to your problem. The first blog describes the PF error coming up, and then turning into another error after they tried some things:
It could be that you can reseat the connector, or it could be a bad control board, but that would take some testing, to make sure it's not a bad thermostate control, etc.
A lot of people have had problems with Kitchenaid's ovens, and some problems have been settle by Kitchenaid. This site explains problems with the self-cleaning function that many have had:
This blog explained how one person had a problem with the self-cleaning function, and Kitchenaid replaced their unit:
I would contact Kitchenaid, and see if there is a recall or some support they can provide. This is clearly a common problem with these units, and they haven't remedied it, from what I read.

Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.

As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.

The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.

I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.

If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.

if you cant program it for more than the 270 you may have changed it from farienhiet ( bad spelling) to celcius. pushing and holding broil may switch it back.

Disconnect the power from the oven and let it sit for at least a few minutes. Then reconnect the power and see if it unlocks.

If not you may need an oven latch replacement.

Hello Susan Bailey,
Typically "THEY" do...
It would be really great to know if we are talking about a USA domestic product...
or another NATIONALITY.
Other countries normally have FUSES in the
appliance cords.

Find your MODEL NUMBER and go to a PART/SPARES
supplier ( I like appliancepartspros.com )
-> appliancepartspros.com
If this is a "MICROWAVE" the FUSE will start popping because the MAGNETRON has deteriorated
and is CONSUMING it's own energy.

I can be a LOT MORE specific if you provide a
model number (pretty please).
Read minds... Cannot rally do...!!
