Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Microwave shuts off about 10 - 30 after starting to heat an item. Display flashes PF. Which I figure is power failure. Unit is 5 months old and has very little use. Model WES1130DM1WW purchased at Wal-Mart.

    I have the same model only I don't get any power at all. Even the display won't light up. Is there a user replaceable fuse?

It should have a one year warranty, right? If so, Westinghouse should take care of it for you.

GE microwave with error code of PF and won't heat anything up


The "PF" on any appliance indicates a power failure. So if you lost power in a recent storm, this would cause your problem. Pressing the cancel button should clear up your problem, and put you back in business. If not, unplug the unit, plug it back in and try the cancel button again. If trouble persists, your board is probably at fault.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Power failure on ge wes1130


Power being interuppted could be anything from a bad fuse , bad fuse holder, bad solder connections on the main board. Bad breaker in your panel. Start by plugging it into an outlet you know is on a different breaker than the on it is on now. See if it does the same thing. If it works ok, then problem with power to the other outlet. If it does the same thing problem inside of unit. PF is Power Failure, now we have to figure out why.

I have a Kenmore over-the-stove microwave oven that is not heating food. Everything else works. I received a message of PF on the keypad. Is there anything I can do before I have to call a repair...


PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

At least twice in the past month have had food explode all over the microwave (as if it was overheating). Items vented properly or not covered at all. this time, kept making poppong noises for at lesat 10...


If you have an item overheating, try looking at the directions on the unit for the watts and adjust cooking time according to the oven. Some foods will explode if left for too long in a quick heating microwave oven. If this is a new problem and the microwave is 4 years old, you may consider the unit is beyond its useful life. Its difficult to tell w/o knowing the brand, but it could be the meagtron tube is simply wearing/worn out. Let me know if this helps. m

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.
