SOURCE: Brother HL-5270DN PF Kit Problem

I found the answer in another group, from Sunshine3240:

Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps:
Turn the printer off.
Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
Release the 'go' button.
Press the 'go' button 2 times.
Press the 'go' button 5 times.
The toner light should be off.
The paper light should be on.
Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.

SOURCE: Resetting "Replace PF Kit 1" message

Same with me on my MFC 8870DW. The procedure worked perfectly:

1) Turn off printer
2) Press and hold menu button and turn on. Keep holding button until you see maintenance on display.
3) Press 88. This brings up parts replacement menu.
4) Press Up arrow until you see the part you replaced (laser, fuser, pf kit1, pf kit mp).
5) Press the OK button.
6) Power off and restart printer.

But how do I know whether or not I really NEED to replace a PF Kit1? I guess I'll find out if it recurs soon.

My PF KITMP life is at 90% can I reset this and get more life out of it or will I have to replace at 100%

PF KitMP is the Manual Feed Paper Kit. Normally these count down not up. If it is counting down there is no need to replace it any time soon.

The life on the kits is based on a certain number of pages being fed through it. The rollers wear with every page sent through. These rollers when the kit expires means they are probably worn smooth and not able to pick up the paper anymore. There are ways around the wearing of these rollers so you may not need to replace them as soon as it expires.

On the machine there will be a maintenance option in the menu which includes parts life and resetting of said parts. I would assume that the parts are going to be available for quite some time since most people dispose of the machine before the PFKits run out. So check with your Brother Supplier for parts availability. The kits are not too expensive normally.

HL-5250 report shows fuser and laser life at 0% and PF kit 1 at 12%

The fuser is a separate component to the drum and toner in this printer. It has a much longer life than them but will run out eventually. Sadly a fuser unit is not a commercially available consumable for this printer either. I would recommend contatcing a printer technicain or Brother directly for a quote on replacing this part.

I need to replace "PF

Ah the Paper Feed Kit 1 on this unit is pretty easy,
If you remove the paper tray and put the printer on it's back you should see the rollers you're going to replace.. unfortunately the service manual doesn't show this procedure so I can't provide a picture.

If memory serves correctly there should be a long light-blue plastic piece that holds the PF Kit roller assembly in place. If you bend this towards the back of the machine the PF Kit should swing down and you just slide it out, replacement is the reverse of this.

Once you're done you'll have to reset the PF Kit counter by:
Press GO and + together,
you should see RESET PARTS LIFE on the LCD
You can then use the + / - to pick the PF Kit and press the SET key to reset the counter.

If you still have problems let me know via this question and I'll try to help further.

Replace the PF KIT 1 On my MFC 8460 N

that refers to the automatic feed. in other words, your main paper cassette. the MP kit is for the manual bypass tray. if paper is feeding ok and your not having problems, you can reset the message by pressing "menu" " *2864" within 2 secs. now you are in maintenance mode. push "88" should show "parts replacement." using arrow buttons go to reset pf1 kit and press "ok" or "start" to reset. press "stop/clear" to back out to maintenance mode screen. press "99" to exit maint. mode. do not mess with any other settings in that mode as you could render your machine inop. however, you may want to reset the "fuser life" while you are in maintenance mode "88" as both of these messages are supposed to come up at 100,000 pages. chances are unless you've had fuser replaced, that message will be coming up soon also.

good luck,
