Run an extension cord to another outlet and try it again.  Usually it's the plug that has the problem.

PF Error Code for Appliances

<p><br /> <p>There is one<b> <i>Error Code that is almost universal to most any appliance</i></b>. The<b> PF or Power Failure code</b> is usually the same no matter what <b>type of appliance</b> or <b>brand</b> you are working with. Even with the fact that this <b>error code is so common</b>, I still see many questions on <b><i></i></b> that are asking <b>what the PF Error Code means</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>So now the next question is this.<br /> <p><br /> <p>What causes the <b>appliance to give you the PF error code</b> in the first place?<br /> <p><br /> <p>The most common cause of your <b>appliance giving you the PF error code</b> is a problem with the <b>power coming in from your utility company</b>. Of course if there is an <b>interruption of power</b>, and then the power comes back on you will get the<b> PF code</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Some <b>appliances will give you the PF code also if the power voltage goes low</b>, or goes into a <b>brownout</b> condition. Depending on the sensitivity of the <b>appliance control</b> you may also get the PF code for other reasons such as <b>frequency problems</b> or <b>voltage fluctuations</b> or <b>power spikes</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The other <b>problems that can cause the PF error code</b> can be internal to the appliance.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Loose wires going to the circuit board</b> or the control can also be a <b>cause of the error code</b>. If a <b>wire terminal end</b> happens to get <b>corroded</b> or loose, the <b>vibration from the machine</b> can cause slight power problems and this can <b>cause the PF code to be displayed</b>. Finding the cause of this type of problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can cause it to be displayed by <b>banging on the side of the appliance</b> or <b>slightly moving the wiring harness</b>, to see if you can get the error code to display.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The bottom line about this <b>power failure error code,</b> is that it is <b>power related</b>. Finding the exact cause can be difficult. If you are continually having to <b>reset the appliance</b> then check to see if all of your appliances are giving the same code. This will indicate <b>utility power problems</b>. If only <b>one appliance is giving the PF code</b> then it is probably internal to the appliance.<br /> <p><br /> <p>

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.

What is wrong if my Frigidaire front load dryer

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer has been providing you with an error code "PF". Typically "PF" stands for power failure this can happen if power is shut off during a cycle or the dryer receives insufficient power, which could be an issue with your power cord or control panel. Let's perform a reset on your dryer and you can do this by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. If you need any additional assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Camera lens won't shut

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include "E18 lens error" (older Canons), "ACCESS" error (Sony), "Zoom Error" (Fuji), "Lens Obstructed" (Kodak), "lens error, restart camera" or just "lens error" (nearly all camera makers lately use this variation). Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.

Sears dryer model 417.84092500. It turns on for about one second, stops, then it shows error message PF. How do i fix it?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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''...


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.
