Kenmore oven model 93341/93441

Displaying pf when plugged into outlet

  • burchseymour Jan 08, 2009

    I have a Whirlpool oven that had an over temp problem. The tech replaced the control module and I've gotten two PF errors since then. Both while cooking - gotta keep an eye on the oven as that shuts it down - and in neither case was there an actual power failure. Nothing else in the house reset itself. I suspect they just ship bad controller modules to keep the repair guys busy :-) Thank goodness we have the extended warranty. The cost for the last service would have been over $350 bucks. This is the 2nd major repair in two years - 1st the oven gas valve failed.



    BTW the first tech told me to never, ever, use self-clean as it will damage the oven. Nice!

I happen to have a manual for that line of models. The PF stands for "Power Failure". It is just the oven's way of saying that the clock needs to be reset, and any oven operations that were in process at the time the electricity was cut off will need to be restarted.

How do I make it shut up?


You probably have an error conditon. Is anything displayed on the control panel? If it's displaying "PF", that means "Power Failure". Press the STOP or CANCEL button, then set the time. That should stop the beeping (if it's displaying PF). if any other error code is displaying, I would need to know your range model number, and the code that was being displayed.

What's wrong when the oven panel shows PF and doesn't work anylonger


PF stands for Power Failure. Just press the STOP or CANCEL key. That should clear the PF message, and allow you to enter in the clock time and operate your oven.

My Kenmore oven won't work there is a PF 5AB error


The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.

If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.

To ENABLE SABBATH mode:

* 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 ON will disappear from the display.

To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.



To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays:
* Press BAKE
* Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F)
* Press COOK TIME
* Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time
* Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional)
* Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds
SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready.
* Press START
* To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR
* To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

Pf on indicating area reset clock, oven light


Make sure the range is not plugged into a GFCI outlet. This could be a sign of a bad ground connection some place or a bad solder connection on the control board. Not easy to locate sometimes and may require a new control board.

Oven does not work "PF" displayed on gscreen


Try this. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a few minutes. Then plug it back the setttings may just need to reboot. Good luck.

Sears Kenmore Elite Oven 790.99123405 Caught Fire!!!


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.

My oven doesn't work


PF probably means "Power Fail." Check your manual to see if this is true. It seems that there is a bad connection or wiring somewhere on the path to the range that is causing the voltage to droop under load. Ensure the plug for the range is firmly seated in the socket and make sure the plug feels like it is making a good connection and is not loose.

The fuse is likely located behind the back panel on the range. If you feel comfortable doing your own repairs, disconnect power from the range and remove the back panel. Locate the fuse, remove and inspect it. If the fuse is okay, re-seat it and try running the oven again. You can also check the line voltage while the oven is running with a volt or multimeter. If the voltage droops excessively while the oven is on, this indicates a bad connection or inadequate wiring. If the voltage is okay, the oven controller might be malfunctioning. If you aren't familiar with using checking the line voltage, you might want to call and electrician or appliance repair man. Is this range under warenty?

Power Failure results in no oven or digital display.


The low voltage has ruined the CCU (clock) YOu will need to replace it. You can order the part via model # on sears.com
