Hi

PF means power failure, to resolve this issue take a hair dryer and with the unit unplugged and the control apart blow air on the electronic part of the control. If the issue returns then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...

    That was the reason I told you that it is the electronic control board that is bad, don't think its anything else that is bad.

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.

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.

Does not turn on all the numbers on panel are zero's and blinking, did try unplugging still nothing


Flashing zeros are a sign of a momentary power loss. Usually you also get a Pf error also. Not always....

Try this and if it does not work let me know.

Press Stop / cancel
Press clock
Set time
Press clock

Attempt normal use.

Pf code flashing on oven


PF = Power failure.

Usually all you have to do is press stop / cancel, then Clock then CLOCK again. After the time is set your microwave should work normally again.

If this does NOT correct your problem I need a complete model number in any future responses.

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.
