PF means power failure.  Usually you can hit cancel or clear and this will go away.  Let me know if this helps.

What when pf error come on

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.

Hello Cjarboe,

I understand that your range is given you F2:E1 code this code states that the keypad cord is unpluged. If you find that it is plug in and the error code comes up again you will need to replace the keypad. Here are the dirrections to check/replace the keypad.

1. Unplug, shutoff power to the unit
2. Remove the knobs from the top of the control panel
3. Remove the endcaps
4. Unscrew the control panel
5. Locate the serial cable comming out of the keypad do the jiggle and make sure wire is tight on the keypad and control board.
6. Reassable in the revearse
7. Check to see if error code displays again if it does you will need to replace the keypad.

This range has been discontunuied by whirlpool and parts are hard to come by. Here is a link that I have found the keypad for $243.42 at the followign link

Thank you for choosing

What does pf display on stove mean

Your electric may have gone off.
The breaker may have been turned off and back on.
The range may have been unplugged and plugged back in.
You have loose wires in the range.
You have a defective control board.
One of the above will cause a PF code.

The PF indicates a power failure.
The range experienced a loss of electrical power.
This code is usually cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button.
If you continue to get this code, you may need to unplug the range and check the wiring connections of the power cord on the back of the range.

PF means power failure.
For short outages the clock may still have correct time
(there is a battery backup for that), but the PF will
be displayed. Setting the clock will clear the PF

Press 'clock set-start' button, (under clock display)
enter time with numeric keypad,
press 'start' button. (to right of clock)
