Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem. However... the control board can also cause this fault. Sometimes you can clean the ribbon and connector at the control board attachment point and correct this.

There is a tech sheet inside the control panel (envelope) that has all of the error codes listed.

The control boad has a female connector with 2 release tabs for the ribbon. YOU MUST unlock the release tabs to remove the ribbon. This is a tedious process but if your gentle and take your time you can coax the ribbon out of the connector. The contact area of the ribbon is quite thin. I have found that you can place something non metalic and FLAT behind the ribbon and then use a tissue to gently clean the ribbon wiping in the same direction of the electrical runs on the ribbon. I.e. wipe from above the bitter end down to the bitter end. (one direction only) The female connector on the control board is much more forgiving. Once you complete the cleaning process press the ribbon back into the female connector and lock the 2 tabs.

If this does not correct the problem you can end up changing the control board (1st) and the touch pad (2nd) to fix it.

If you need help with locating parts just respond here and I will gladly assist you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Can the ribbon alone be replaced without the control board? One of the contact areas on the ribbon appears to be scraped off by careless assemblers. Thanks!

    The ribbin can be replace but good luck finding one. You might be able to peel back the outer plastic of the shorter side of the rippon and trim the end if it is at the main board connector. You would have to punch new connector lock tab holes also. Good luck.... A tedious task but possible.

Displaying E6 & F2 code

F2/E6 fault code implies a Cancel key drive line open. This means the key pad ribbon connector could be loose or dirty where it connects to the oven control board or a faulty oven control board.

Press Cancel. If the error code returns after 60 seconds, replace the key pad. If it continues to display F2/E6 after replacing the key pad, replace the oven control board. The parts can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the oven before servicing.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2-E6 error code indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure then before replacing the sensor you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then 1120 ohms then it needs replacement however, if the reading is between 1080-1120 ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, after reading your problem it seems that the sensor is causing this and replacing it is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a Whirlpool double oven (model RBD275PDS14). The control panel goes blank about every 2-3 months, and the oven won't heat. Although, the light inside the oven will still work. When the panel lights...

Your error code is for a stuck keypad. You can try pressing every button at random several times each to unstick.'
When the control board is changed on these ovens the keypad assembly is supposed to be changed also.
