What dose PF mean


I would check the power to make sure of the polarity, two hots and a ground. Once that checks out ok and still has a problem, check the power cord connections in the dryer, that green wire goes to chasis ground or terminal N, G, and the solid color wires to the line 1 and line 2. If it still trips on PF, then a wiring diagram and tracing the power failure is needed, perhaps a control transformer but its too early to say now. Diagnose.

My Frigidaire dryer will not start. It shows a PF trouble code. What does this mean?


PF is showing you that there is a power problem. Check your dryer circuit breaker at the power panel. This can be a sing that one of the 2 breakers has tripped. Push the CB hard to OFF and then back to ON. Then try and start your dryer. If that does not work just respond here and I will help you.

Try selecting "No Heat" after resetting the CB and see if the dryer starts. If it does you could have a bad heating element that caused the breaker to trip to begin with. Sometimes when the heating element fails the broken link will contact the chassis and cause the CB to trip. Heating element failures are usually caused by poor airflow. You may want to look for any signs of lint in your dryer to include the lint filter area and all the way to the outside wall exhaust point.

What does PF on the display mean?


HI. The PF(power failure) will show when there has been an abrupt voltage drop detected by the main board. This can be cause by a lighting storm or a faulty circuit breaker. Other causes may include loose junction points at the power cord terminals on the rear of the unit or loose connections at the main board harness connectors. I would advise to check all areas that i have stated above for those faults. This code does not necessarily indicate that a component has failed.

Once you have established a solid connection to the main power source, you will be able to clear the code and start using the dryer as normal.

PF singal on dryer. Can not start dryer something electrical possibe pf power failer


Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

Try to turn on but it wont stay on


If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

Code "PF" = N/A


Soft Touch -PF- means power failure, nothing else. Most likely the problem is not with the dryer. The circuit breaker became too weak for the dryer load. I beleive replacing the circuit breaker will solve the problem. Gendos...post back
