Hi,

I can easily explain the "PF". It means your EOC or electronic oven control/timer is losing power for some reason, hence the "PF", for power failure.

I`d suspect the control itself is defective or at fault as they have built in transformer`s that can become faulty.

I would first insure your power supply cord is secure and in good condition in the wall or you don`t have loose wires going to the timer.

Hope that help`s move you forward, let me know if I can assist you further.

Good luck.

Wolf ovens getting err message after power outage


I had a Wolf 30F wall oven with a similar problem
after power outage. It wouldnt stop beeping with error message related
to temperature control. My solution was to turn power of at circuit
panel, then reset by pressing and holding the clear button for 5
seconds.

Also note: in my case I had to close the display
before switching the panel off. When I tried to the reset process with
the panel showing, it wouldn\'t reset.



To reset other
various parts of the control panel Instructions said:



Time-of-Day Clock

Immediately after the oven is installed, set
the 12-hour clock to the current time of day. It may need to be reset
after a prolonged power failure. The clock is visible on the control
panel during all modes. If the upper oven timer is set, the clock will
not be visible in the upper oven control panel display.



SETTING CLOCK

1) Touch CLOCK.

2) Touch number pads to
set current time of day.

3) Touch CLOCK or ENTER to start
clock.



24-HOUR CLOCK

The time-of-day clock can be
changed from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. After the clock has
been set, touch TEMPERATURE for three seconds, touch CLOCK, and then
touch ENTER. Follow the same sequence to change back to the standard
12-hour clock setting.



Fahrenheit to Celsius

The
oven can be changed from Fahrenheit (°F) temperature to Celsius
(°C).

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!

What does pf on digital display mean? Oven will not work


Hi,
PF means power failure.
This has caused a power outage to the oven.
This error can be removed by resetting the clock.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

After a power blackout in our neighborhood the oven display showed a blinking clock time-still keeps time- which could not be reset. The soft panel does not respond to any setting to turn on the oven in...


Try turning the breaker to that unit off and keep it off for 20 minutes or overnight, if possible, then flip the breaker back on. If it still shows the PF code, call us and we can get the correct part to you. Hope this helps.

Error code F7 keeps coming up, what does this mean?


F1 error and beeping. Don't bother getting GE out there. Cost me $90 to learn they don't make the clock. WOuld have been $500+ for the control panel anyway. Better off just buying a new one. Planned obsolescence I guess. I won't buy GE again.
