My power went off today and when it came back on, my Kenmore oven shows error code "PF 5 AB". None of the buttons work that I press. Burners turn on, but can't turn on oven. Suggestions?

Could that be PF power failure 5AB in the Sabbath mode. That's a new one.
Your model number is useless. Sears has a big 3 digit product code followed by 8 digits.
But let me dig up my 5AB notes:

Here is what I have:

To
provide sabbath feature (or to cancel this setting):
1. Push the PREHEAT pad and set the oven
temperature to 500°F/260°C or more using the UP
ARROW pad.
2. Push the PREHEAT pad within the next 2 seconds
for 3-4 seconds. A beep sounds and a number
appears in red to the right of the display. For the
conversion, "3" must be displayed. If another number
is displayed, push the PREHEAT pad and select
"3".
3. Push the UP or DOWN ARROW pad to change
from 12 hour to 9999 in the display, for no 12 hour
shut-off.
4. Push the CANCEL pad to confirm your choice.

Other Displays:
When proceeding through steps 1 and 2 in the
Temperature Scale Conversion or in the elimination
of the Sabbath feature /12-hour Shut-off time limit,
two other words can be seen in the display. One is ESC
with O in red. It cannot be changed. The other is USE or
SALE with 3 in red. This one is for factory use and should
stay on USE.
Hope this helps

I have a Kenmore 66575014101 oven I get F3 fault code but I replaced the Temperature sensor and it still gives the F3 fault code


I found this on line don't know if it will help but it might send you in the right direction for testing to determine if it's worth repairing-- sorry
Shortly after a series of power failures I started receiving this error code. Looked up it online and did some extensive research. Everything pointed to a faulty sensor so I purchased a new sensor and installed it today. It didnt help, and testing my old sensor I determined it was also working. In the service manual it stated to do the following corrective action for the F3 - E0/E1/E2/E3 error codes:

Quote: 1. Measure sensor value (between connector pins) between 1000 ? @ 32° F and 2697 ? @ 900° F (room temperature approx. = 1080 ? ). If measurement does not correlate to real temperature, disconnect power, replace sensor and refer to steps 3-5. Also measure from sensor connector to sensor casing for possible short.

2. Trace wires and connectors to sensor, from control, then from sensor back to control. If all connections made and no wire damage, refer to step 3.

3. Disconnect power for longer than 30 seconds

4. Re-apply power and press BAKE and START/ENTER. Observe for longer than 1 minute.

5. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control, then go back to step 4. I also tested the resistance of the sensors control panel wire harness connector and they are correct. Next step outlined in the service manual is to replace the control board. Sears has the control panel in stock for $177.47. This to me is not worth it over the cost of a whole new oven. Are there any fuses or anything else that could easily or cheaply be replaced before throwing out the oven. Thankyou very much in advance for your time!

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!

The oven is giving us an error of pf


Control board has experienced a loss of electrical power. Pressing the cancel/clear/off button should clear the code. If the code reappears then you will need to unplug and check the wiring connections of the power cord on the back of the range. You will also need to check the main power connection going to the control board.

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
error code

Kenmore gas Range -- Control Panel not working


Hi. your assessment is correct. when you have normal operations with the stove top and the control panel is blank or non operational, this will confirm either a wiring harness issue or a dead control circuit board. The wiring harness can sometimes become lose or the connectors can become corroded but, in this issue, i am sure its the ECB(electroninc control board). In this case, you will have to replace the board it self.

Please rate and god bless:)

Kenmore Elite slide in range F30 error


I had the same F30 error problem but fixed it. On my professional series Frigidaire, there are 2 resettable red button locations. I discovered that only one is in the rear of the oven. After going to the breaker box and shutting off the power, pull out the stove enough to work, unscrew the rear screws (I didn't unscrew all of them, just enough to work back there). The small red button is on a small black round piece with two purple wires feeding to it. That was not my problem. Mine was the other red button behind the control panel. Pull off all 4 knobs, unscrew by hand the large black rings that are underneath the knobs, pull out the whole panel. Look back and right (below where the right knobs were located) to find the 2nd red small button. Push to reset. Check this one first since it is easier to do.

Electric Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven


I finally found my manual to the range, and to change from celsius to fahrenheit press the BROIL button for 5 seconds. A tone will sound, and the temperature should switch to Fahrenheit.

As far as the code PF 5ab--it could be PF Sab which means the power went out during Sabbath mode. Try pressing and holding TIMER OFF for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, then 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 OFF" should appear. Press START to accept the change, then close the oven door.
