Question about Whirlpool RF364 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Power Failure caused by oven door...

I keep getting continued PF message on the display. If the door is closed all the way, there is no power at all. If it is pulled out slightly, it will work then..sometimes. It is affecting the cooktop surface as well as the oven. I am going crazy with this, help....Could the door latch thing have something to do with it? I have replaced breakers, checked power cord...

We had a power failure and Kenmore stove showed pf and now loc. cannot get burners to turn on and cannot get loc off.

If you have a power failure or a brown out, it sends a very powerful current through the unit. Please keep in mind that these units are not protected against any surges. If you have a display, that means you have power. Unfortunately, the clock/timer contains relays that control the elements, the oven, etc. You will need to replace the clock to get it running again.

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,

The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

I have a Kenmore over-the-stove microwave oven that is not heating food. Everything else works. I received a message of PF on the keypad. Is there anything I can do before I have to call a repair...

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

GE JBP45G oven display module keeps on showing ''PF'', whether I turn oven on or off.Have to constantly reset clock to make the ''PF'' message dissapear. My broiler element is not working,but why is ''PF''...


I can easily explain the "PF". It means your EOC or electronic oven control/timer is losing power for some reason, hence the "PF", for power failure.

I`d suspect the control itself is defective or at fault as they have built in transformer`s that can become faulty.

I would first insure your power supply cord is secure and in good condition in the wall or you don`t have loose wires going to the timer.

Hope that help`s move you forward, let me know if I can assist you further.

Good luck.

What does pf on digital display mean? Oven will not work

PF means power failure.
This has caused a power outage to the oven.
This error can be removed by resetting the clock.

Hope this helps.

After a power failure I am getting the code e1 f1 flashing on my display board and it will not go away.

q.gif Why is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
Answer Is "PF" displayed on the control?
A temporary power failure has been detected. Press the Stop/Clear keypad to reset your control. You may need to reset your clock.
Is the display showing E0-F5?
The Self-Cleaning latch may be interfering with the oven door causing the Self-Cleaning cycle not to work. If the oven door is open and will not lock, press Stop/Clear to clear the display, press and hold the door switch plunger (located in the upper-right corner of the oven front), and the door latch will unlock. If the oven door is closed and locked, press Stop/Clear to clear the display; apply pressure to the upper-right corner of the oven door, and the door will unlock.
Is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
You will need to schedule service.

It has detected a problem with the switch on the door lock motor. In most cases the switch will need to be replaced.
