Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven

Hotpoint RVM1435WJ01 The microwave does not work. Everytime I try it shuts off and shows a PF which I am guessing means power failure. I have tried resetting the plug in but that has not resolved the issue.

A mains surge may have taken out the fuse. To find the fuse, remove it from the mains, remove the outer cover and follow where the power cable enters the case. There will be a PCBoard with a fuse on it.
Always replace the fuse with one of exactly the same type and value!

One day the microwave just showed PF on the screen, unplugged and plugged in tried to use it, worked for 30 seconds, stopped and showed PF again. Any ideas? It is only a few years old and used in our...


PF is Power Failure. Check and see if the Oven has a reset switch or power button. Try and hook up an extension cord, plug one end into a usable output (wall plate) and the other into the 110VA line plug attached to the Oven. Turn on....if it works then the problem is a circuit breaker or wall interface. If it fails with the extension, then it is an electrical problem with the microwave device itself. If there are no Reset features on the oven, an internal fuse may blow, or other shorts are occurring. The cost to fix is more than a new unit. Lowes has them as low as $150.00.

What does "PF" error message mean?


It means power failure. The power might have gone off in your house. Try resetting the clock.

My hotpoint microwave says PF -- the buttons are not working either - but i notice some are now - like the light etc -- the clock doesnt work


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.

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.

PF ?


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
