Re: kitchenaid electric range

This one can be a little tricky. I really need to know a lot more information to give you a good answer. You are right pf does mean power failure. This is detected by your power board the is located under the cooktop. If you select cancel the pf should disapear and you should be able to use your oven. You didn't mention whether the control board displayed the pf before you actually tried the oven. If it did, and it gives you that error every time you use the cooktop for a period of time, you could have a problem with the thermister located right behind the console. To remove the console just remove the screws on the under side then lift the console straight up and off.

I have KitcheAid KERS 807, electric stove/oven range. Left lower part of ceramic stove top that has single/dual heater sizes is malfunctioning. Single one is still working but from recent dual does not.I...

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

Own a KitchenAid gas range superba, how do i clean the burner, one of my front burners the gas flow is very low, the stove has the glass/ceramic top with no wells & no way to get to the burners...only...

You'll need certified stove technician to service you kitchen Aid range. You have low gas flow on one of the burner. The manual gas control valve behind the knob needs to removed and cleaned. If you have one cleaned then have technician clear all four of these manual gas valves. While he cleaning the valve have do a complete check up of you Kitchen Aid range. Dangerous for the home owners to do this procedure because flowing natural gas or propane. In a lot the states you'll need to be certified by the state to work with natural gas, gas stove, ovens, gas home heating units, etc. It differentially a no,no here.

It is not the burners, it is gas flow valves for the burners. Most of the burner are made of aluminum and I wouldn't use any harsh cleaners of them. Check with Kitchen Aid and ask them what is recommend for cleaning the burners. Also the top of the range isn't ceramic but porcelain, it glass that has been melt to the top hood of the range. Don't use scratch pads, steel wool or any thing that will mare the Periclean surface of your stove.

If you can get the aluminum burner out to clean them then do so. GB you Allison and I wish you many year cooking on your Kitchen Aid range. stewbison

Top burners work, oven not getting gas electronic ignition comes

The electronic ignition system (a ceramic plate that glows red) lets some power pass through to allow the gas to flwo when it has reached lighting temperature. The ceramic lighter needs replacing. Either that or the general electronic in the stove are shot.

Sears Kenmore Elite Oven 790.99123405 Caught Fire!!!

The PF indicates a power failure.
The range experienced a loss of electrical power.
This code is usually cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button.
If you continue to get this code, you may need to unplug the range and check the wiring connections of the power cord on the back of the range.

PF means power failure.
For short outages the clock may still have correct time
(there is a battery backup for that), but the PF will
be displayed. Setting the clock will clear the PF

Press 'clock set-start' button, (under clock display)
enter time with numeric keypad,
press 'start' button. (to right of clock)

KERC600GWH1 glass control panel is cracked.

Replacing the Ceramic top is not difficult. Just remember to be careful. There should be 2-to-5 screws holding the top to the front support. Removing these screws will allow the top to be tilted up and back. Depending on the style you may have to remove the burner plates from the top. Remember to disconnect the power before attempting any repair
