Question about Ovens
My computer in the kitchen near the stove went off - I turned it back on all fine - but the oven had a PF code - I shut off the breaker for 5 minutes but when I turned it back on PF remains - what else should I try???
If you are tripping a 50 A breaker, you have major problems. First check the breaker, to make sure it is in reality, tripping at 50 amps. As they get older they can suffer heat damage, and will trip at lower currents. How old is it? Does it visibly look like bad (burnt, etc) Is it loose on the mounting buss? Burnt smell? If everything checks out then go to the oven and look for loose connections. There will be heat where there is a 50 amp current draw. If the oven is suspect, I would seriously consider dumping it as soon as possible. This is serious fire safety hazard. Again, loose connections. Check all of them, both AC+ legs, Neutral, and ground.

Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...

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?

Seems like you found out the hard way what I wrote about in this tip...
Yuor wiring has been incinerated with the stuff in your oven...
Yes, it can be fixed, depending on what and how much has burnt...
