Whirlpool gas range oven not working.

Whirlpool serial number XR4001309. Touch pad display panel does not work. Display indicates PF. Is the problem the touch pad or is it the electronic circuit board that has failed? Any help would be appreciated.

Hello tdbn1. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Generically speaking, PF means power failure. Which may be an electrical power failure external to the appliance or internally within it's parts or electrical system.

If there was no external electrical power failure at the wall receptacle you're aware of, then most likely the touch pad is defective or an internal electrical component has failed.

If unplugging the appliance and waiting 5-10 before plugging it back into electrical power source, then suspect a componet failure.

Your local retail appliance parts dealer can best advise you which componet it it most likely based upon the brand and model. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Cautionary Reminder Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
