SOURCE: 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,

SOURCE: Resetting "Replace PF Kit 1" message

From what I could figure out from experimenting on an MFC-8860DN we are junking the procedure is:

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.

Not sure if this applies to the 8460. Maintenance menu feels dangerous, so use at your own risk.

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.

OK, we've got a second-hand brother 6050dn for our computer lab of about 35 computers. I've recently replaced the PF KIT For the MP drawer, but had trouble resetting it. Finally figured it out...


Replace the parts! If it is used you have no idea of how old the parts in it are even if they look good. The counters that turn these messages count sheets of paper not time and the parts may have moisture damage from sitting up.

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.

I am trying to buy a pf kit 1 for my brother MFC 8670 DM. Where can I purchase this?


Just clean the pick up rollers with water + a dash of meths and a drop of detergent, de-fluff the paper separation shoe and rollers on the paper trays. Reset the PF Kit 1 counter (PF = paper feed) and carry on.

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.
