The electric oven control goes out during oven use. It comes back on within 5 minutes and the display has a PF on it. I reset the clock and can use the oven again. The stove top never loses power. I know that refers to power failure but am wondering if there is an easy fix. I have seen many answers about when the electric oven control goes out for good, but so far mine seems to "fix" itself. There is no evidence of a power failure / fluctuation anywhere else in the house.

Corrected model number

That model number is incomplete. Did you get it right off the appliance's model and serial number tag on the appliance?

Can you post the complete information?

It is likely going to require at least some intervention. The only possibilities I can think of is maybe a loose wiring connection to the control or a defect in the control itself.

Someone will need to open it up and make certain all power connections are tight. If the symptom continued, replacing the control might be necessary.

Good.

I looked up its wiring diagram and don't see any components between the power supply and the control board that could cause the board to report a power failure. If a loose wiring connection isn't the cause, the electronic control may be internally defective and need to be replaced.

The bad news is the replacement control is expensive but this vendor offers a $60 rebate for return of the defective old part.

Many thanks. I was hoping it was something easy / cheap. For the price of a new one I am not going to put much effort into this one. Interestingly it shut down again last night when I was making dinner. Only off for 6 minutes and it came back on and worked fine.
