Where are my electric stove's fuses located (if that is indeed the problem)?

The electronics were probably destroyed by the lightning strike.
Heating elements can withstand voltage surges but not the more sensitive electronics.
The oven is controlled by the timer but none of the top burners are. Using the Brand name and Model number you should be able to buy parts. The controls may all on a single board.

What does PF stand for

On my range, it means that there was a power failure. Just press Off/Cancel to clear the message. Reset the clock if needed.

If this is happening frequently, check the wiring and the control board itself. (Sometimes a power failure will be preceded or followed by a power surge that can damage the electronics of the control board. Lightning strikes are a common cause of the surge. If a surge has damaged the board, the control board will need to be replaced. Depending on the color of your range, this is a $130 to $300+ part.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment if other errors are being displayed or have recently been displayed.

Oven will not light

yes this is most likely do to the lightning i have been to a couple houses hit by lightning that all of the appliances were shorted due to lightning try first unplugging the power cord then replug to see if you can get it to trip back to the normal fuction mode most of the time this does not work most likely your main control board has shorted out due to the lightning most of the time this is covered under you homeowners insurance if you rent then you can speak with the landlord. your other option would be to open the unit and find every shorted spot which might get a bit costly hope this helps

No power

Check the range circuit at your house fuse panel.
If it is tripped reset it.
Then check the range for a short circuit.

Heating eliments do not heat up

Did the electrical service power go out, or did the display on the oven go out?
If it was the display, then make certain the breakers didn't trip or fuses blow feeding power to the unit. If they are both good, and the display is still not lighting up, the unit may have blown a thermal fuse, usually located near the control head. This failure could be caused by a number of things (it happened that my KitchenAid had a service bulletin and modification kit to replace the blowers and reroute the wiring).

Please reply you findings and I wil help you more.

Unusable new oven after ice storm

HI. the storm has caused an electrical surge that traveled through the home wiring system and, the Oven control received the hit in this case. it is damaged at this point, and it should be replaced asap, if possible. this code represents a major control breakdown. the board is ruined.

replace it asap.
