If only it worked as good as it looks... F6E9 error code

By Fi

from Washington DC

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Range:

We bought all brand new Kitchen Aid appliances during Black Friday last year. Purchased a fridge w/bottom freezer, dishwasher, microwave and this electric oven.

Most of our appliances are good. We like the fridge, love the microwave, and the dishwasher is ok (dishes are still completely wet at the end, doesn't dry well even with the Heated Dry setting on, but I can live with that).

This oven, however, is disappointing. First of all, it takes FOREVER to pre-heat. Like a half hour or more. Once it is pre-heated and you open it up for 2 minutes to put the baking dish in and shut the oven door, you'll notice the temp drop drastically and it'll take another 10-15 mins to come up to the temp you had set it had. Once it warms though, it's fine. Food cooks fairly well.

My main issue is the F6E9 we keep getting. Unit was installed in mid-December and about 3-4 weeks later, we noticed there was a random F6E9 error code on the display panel. We called the appliance store, they spoke to Kitchen Aid, someone came out to diagnose it, then they came back to repair some parts and we were told it should be fine. Then it happened again. And again. And again!

We have had technicians come out 3-4 times this past year to repair this issue. They've replaced whatever parts they think are causing the issue but it persists. The error code comes back after a few weeks.

Most annoyingly, usually we can hit "cancel" on the touch screen and the error code disappears so we can at least use the stove controls and see the temp etc. on the display panel.

Now, I have to replace the whole stove and hope the issue doesn't occur in the new one.

This time, however, the error code came back 5 days ago and now it won't go away. No amount of hitting cancel gets rid of it. So now, all my touch panel shows is the error code.

To say I expected better from Kitchen Aid would be an understatement. I am extremely disappointed in their appliance quality and will never be purchasing them again.

Stay away from this product

By Disgusted owner

from Trenton NJ

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Range:

Purchased this range to replace an 18 yea old Kenmore. Never needed service once. This range had an error code F6E9 error code 2 months after purchasing. No one knows what the code is and not listed in the manual. Able to clear it but yesterday using the convection a horrible electrical burning smell coming from the back vents. Turned it off, unplugged and pulled away from the wall. Waiting to be sure nothing sparking and called customer service. Took information and forwarded to safety department. Had to leave a message although they were open until 8 and left message much earlier. Called me back a 11:30 the next day. Safety? Solution was to send someone out to diagnose. I repeat, safety? Why would I plug in a burning range to have it diagnosed? This error code is not new - buyer beware wrote a review with this same error code yet it still not a code kitchen aid can identity in customer service. Apparently no one knows or can find out by asking a technician for the answer. Stay away from this product and save yourself the trouble of dealing with kitchen aid. It's not what it used to be.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Range:

Bright red, easy to understand indicators on the control panel. Bar graph heating indicators are nice because I can see whats on high and what's not. Oven control indicators make sense too. Shows the set point temperature and the increasing temperature in contrasting colors. Largest element starts to boil a very large pot of water in about eight minutes.

For the most part satisfied.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Range:

I am happy with this range for the most part. It did take me a bit to get used to the burners and what heat setting I should use because it seems the medium setting is hotter than I expected. Also, the oven takes a long time to heat up.
