Electric Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven

After we had a power outage our oven panel read "PF 5Ab". We have not been able to clear it and use the oven. The stove top works just fine but that is it. Normally after a power outage we just press the "stop/clear" button but none of the buttons are doing anything. Our Model is #665.95713300. Thank you for any help on what we need to do or fix!!!

    Oh yes, same thing happened to us. The power went out and the stove has the letters PF which means power failure. In return it will not go off. But we can still use the oven and stovetop. Now our problem with this stupid stove is that it is in Celsius not Fahrenheit and the temperature will not stay at the request degree, it will continue to rise to about 600 degrees. No more Sears products.

    Kenmore Pro double oven with PF code. Turned power off at circuit breaker, which didn't work but when I set the clock, error code disappeared and oven worked.

I finally found my manual to the range, and to change from celsius to fahrenheit press the BROIL button for 5 seconds. A tone will sound, and the temperature should switch to Fahrenheit.

As far as the code PF 5ab--it could be PF Sab which means the power went out during Sabbath mode. Try pressing and holding TIMER OFF for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, then open the oven door, press STOP/CLEAR, press both the HOUR "up" and "down" arrow pad at the same time and hold for 5 seconds, "Sab OFF" should appear. Press START to accept the change, then close the oven door.

Kenmore dont publish much on their ranges but listen somewhere on that range will be a technial data sheet some you pull the bottom drawer out and look on either side for a white sheet in a holder others are taped some are under the back panel if you have to get under that panel unpluf the range or turn the breaker off that sheet will give you speficis on that code and how to clear it it will also tell you how to change it to farenhiet but you owners should tell you that under that but if you have a cancel button try pushing that or holding stop clear for 5 secs by the way fyi kenmore is built by whirlpool and good stove i wait to hear

Kenmore ultra bake self cleaning super capacity electric oven is showing the letters pf in red what could this mean?


PF usually just refers to power failure. You should only have to reset your clock and then check to make sure everything else works.

Kenmore gas Range -- Control Panel not working


Hi. your assessment is correct. when you have normal operations with the stove top and the control panel is blank or non operational, this will confirm either a wiring harness issue or a dead control circuit board. The wiring harness can sometimes become lose or the connectors can become corroded but, in this issue, i am sure its the ECB(electroninc control board). In this case, you will have to replace the board it self.

Please rate and god bless:)

Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven Won't Heat Up


Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on.  If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module.  Electrical spikes cause problems like this.

Kenmore ultra bake oven is locked


The manual is located at the back of your oven. If your oven is against a wall, pull it back, not too far, and you will see a manual taped to the back of it. From there, it will provide you with answers some employers won't know. If it's not there, sorry, you're outta luck!

Oven doesn't work after power failure but range does


Sears customer care suggests to hold the clock button for 5 sec. But that does not work. After 2 hours on the phone getting the run around and getting disconnected, the only help they can provide is to call a repair guy in for $70 per hour just to diagnose the problem. They will not provide a spec sheet or a manual to determine if I needed a new circuit board at $305.45. I fixed the problem myself by holding down the Timer OFF button for 5 sec. Maybe they should pay me $70. I will be buying a surge protector for the oven outlet. I hope this helps.

Power outage issue


You unit is stuck in the "Display Model Mode". Hold the stop/clear button for at lest five seconds in insure the interlock activates. If it does not activate then the electronic range control (erc) is not functioning. Replace the erc (Clock/Display.)
