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.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

GE Microwave # JESYO39WF001. Control panel locked up, beeps. Turned off and on. No help. Shows PF and other codes. Asks to enter code but key pad does not work. Help


Your the 2nd one today..bad main control board.. Cheaper to buy a new one
microwave unless you can find a replacement board and do it yourself... tell me what you want to do and I can walk you through..board is about $100 if you can find one.plus shipping repair shop would cost $200-225 incl. parts if they can get them

Microwave does not work at all. Shows "PF" in display.


"PF" on the display is an indication that your oven experienced a power interruption. Normally, the error code can be cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button. You may have to reset the time. This is accomplished by pressing the CLOCK button, entering the time on the keypad, then pressing CLOCK again. If this does not clear your problem, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I am having a problem with my Panasonic Microwave oven. the operating panel is a touch type one. Now whenevr I am pressing any button, I am not getting any beep sound nor the display panel is showing any...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This can happen when there is a power failure. Usually there is a PF in the display but you can also get 88:88

Try this first: Press stop / pause or cancel then clock and try and set the time. If at that time you do not get any beeps your control board most likely has a problem. To dig deeper if you wish to have more assistance I need your complete model number to possibly troubleshoot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

My microwave shows PF on the screen and none of the buttons are working, not even the timer button. How to solve this problem ?


PF = Power failure. Try and push the clear or cancel button (or start, or clock etc) You may have missed one. If that doesn't work try and unplug it for 10 seconds or so and retry.

Microwave lost power in the middle of heating a lunch. Later power came on with PF in the display. Is this normal?


it seems the thetmal cutoff(TCO) mounted on the magnetron to protect it from overheating is going off.it opens out when magnetron overheats and cuts the power to the control board and after the magnetron cools down tco resets and power to control board is restored with the sign PF(power failure).the fan that cools the magnetron may have gone bad.i think u will need a tech 2 chk it out.

UPDATE

The -SE-error is a shorted keypad.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
