Go to PF when there is none

Starting 30 days ago the ovens turn off and show "PF" after awhile when both ovens are turned on. Oven has been installed and in use since February 2003 with no previous problem and nothing has been changed.

Re: Go to PF when there is none

Wshort, As long as you are sure the circuit to the oven is not the problem,such as drop in voltage, here are a couple of suggestions. Number one is that the electronic parts for this model have a five year warranty on them and you may want to call for factory service. Sometimes the connections on the main control board become loose or corroded. Try reseating them and see if the problem stops. If not I would suspect the control board power transformer behind the control board. There are two transformers, one for lights the other for the control board. The control board transformer should have the red and blue wires while the light transformer will have the black and white. The voltage could be dropping out here. Make sure that the wires to the oven terminal block are not loose or burnt. Since you are not receiving any error codes except for PF, Im not suspecting the board itself. back.

Flashing PF 32 error code

Hello - This manufacturer does not show to have such an error code for a wall oven. However the error codes F30/F31 indicates that the unit either has an issue with the oven sensor, wiring with the EOC or the probe connections is open or shorted. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

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?

New oven won't work and can't set time, display keeps blinking

Hey--  You've spent a bunch of time on this already, so let's figure it out. The first step is to check power connections. L1, L2 , Neutral for proper location and tight connections. Should have 120v and 220v checked at bus block. If these check out, then this new unit should be under warranty and qualify for service. Not unheard of bad board or loose wire on a new unit. Let a tech sort it out on site. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed-  Thanks-  Ed

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.

Try turning the breaker to that unit off and keep it off for 20 minutes or overnight, if possible, then flip the breaker back on. If it still shows the PF code, call us and we can get the correct part to you. Hope this helps.
