The DE error comes up when the refrigerator has not detected adefrostcurrent within a certain amount of time. This is most often theresultof a burnt out defrost heater. The refrigeratorwill likelykeep working for a week or so until the frost builds up andblocks theair flow over the evaporator (the cooling coils behind theback wall ofthe freezer). The defrost heater is located at the bottomof saidevaporator.

The oven overheated and now a PF is on the face


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire range, model# GLHS269ZDB, overheated, and is now showing a "PF" code displayed on the control panel. The "PF" code means that there was a power failure. You can clear that by pressing any button. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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.

Power failure control panel beeps no lights on panel and oven wont turn on. have lights on inside of oven. do i need a code, never have before. always showed PF for power failure.


Was the oven doing a self clean when the PF occurred? If so the cavity limit probably tripped.
Sometimes the owner wants to shut down the process of self clean for whatever reason that also trips the cavity limit. If the oven circuit breaker is weak then their could be a power failure during which the oven was on and that could cause the cavity limit to trip. No lights on panel means the temp inside the oven control panel exceeded normal operating temp and the small inline fuse going into the control panel has melted:

This is what that small fuse looks like. To get to the insides
you usually drop the side trim exposing the screws then the controls fold outward.

I get a PF error. That goes away and shows 52 in the display. The buttons light up, but pressing any buttons does nothing but to make 3 beeps.


PF is Power Fail, means the Power was cut off. PF Power failure Power to the machine has been lost during the last cycle. This may occur on start up of a new machine due to factory testing.

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''...


Hi,

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.

Buttons on oven control will not respond to reset unit


Your power company has a free service whereby they will come to your home after a power failure and check things out for you. I would begin by calling them. It is possible that you have a problem in your electrical panel which is limiting the power to one side. Call them and let me know.

PF ?


Not actually dead, just apparently unresponsive.

PF means power failure. It either got reset or unplugged, etc.

If it's not responding to the keys, then you likely have a shorted keypad or trouble on the control board.
