Flashing ":" or PF in display - Over-the-Range Microwave

Possible Solutions

Flashing ":" or PF in display:

There has been a power failure or the clock time has been turned off. When power is first supplied to the microwave oven, a colon ( : ) will blink in the display.

Touch the "Cancel/Off" or "Cancel" key (depending upon model) to stop the blinking.

Has a power failure occurred?

If the colon " : " blinks in the display a power failure has occurred. Touch the "Cancel/Off" or "Cancel" key, and reset the clock as needed. If an invalid value has been entered, the invalid entry tones will sound and the input prompt will reappear in the display. Retry your entry.

When the microwave oven is in use, the display shows cooking power, quantities, weights and/or prompts. When the microwave oven is not in use (standby mode), the display shows the time of day or Timer countdown.

Refer to the Owner's Manual for detailed control operation instructions.
