I just hit "start" and it goes back to the time.

This is exactly right, when your control shows PF, this is not a fault mode but only indication that your controller went out of power. It could be due to a real power failure or be caused by the bimetal switch made to protect controller from excessive heat.

When you see PF, simply apply on the cancel button and it should be ok.

If this occured after self cleaning cycle, I would check the vents for possible clugging.

We had a power failure and Kenmore stove showed pf and now loc. cannot get burners to turn on and cannot get loc off.


If you have a power failure or a brown out, it sends a very powerful current through the unit. Please keep in mind that these units are not protected against any surges. If you have a display, that means you have power. Unfortunately, the clock/timer contains relays that control the elements, the oven, etc. You will need to replace the clock to get it running again.

Whirlpool stove pf


A pf code usually shows up if the power to the stove has been interrupted for a short time. It is usually cleared by setting the clock or setting the oven or broil.

PF code


Depending on manufacturer and model, PF can mean a number of things. On my stove, PF simply indicates "Power Fail" Yours may, too. You can clear this generally by updating the clock display. To verify that PF does indeed mean power fail for your stove, simply shut off the power for the cicuit than supplies the stove. This can be either circuit breaker or fuses. Turn the power back on after 5 or more seconds and if it displays PF again, you know it means power fail.

Otherwise, please provide the manufacturer and model of you stove for an answer.

Good luck!

Power failure control panel beeps no lights on panel and oven wont turn on. have lights on inside of oven. do i need a code, never have before. always showed PF for power failure.


Was the oven doing a self clean when the PF occurred? If so the cavity limit probably tripped.
Sometimes the owner wants to shut down the process of self clean for whatever reason that also trips the cavity limit. If the oven circuit breaker is weak then their could be a power failure during which the oven was on and that could cause the cavity limit to trip. No lights on panel means the temp inside the oven control panel exceeded normal operating temp and the small inline fuse going into the control panel has melted:

This is what that small fuse looks like. To get to the insides
you usually drop the side trim exposing the screws then the controls fold outward.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Bake Stove, we had a power outage and neither the oven nor burners works. The code on top reads PF 5Ab. What can i do to reset the stove?


PF is usually power failure.
If "PF" appears at any other time, a power failure occurred. To remove "PF"and to reset the clock, press STOP/CLEAR.

Unplug the unit for half an hour or so to see if it will reset.
If not try to get into the diagnostics so you can see if there is a stored

You're stove must be perfectly fine, but the thing displaying all those options may have a problem. Try to get this fixed as soon as possible.
