My Kenmore Elite refrigerator shows a PF code on the front

Customer Question

My Kenmore Elite refrigerator shows a PF code on the front panel after a power interruption. The reset button does not work nor do any of the functions on the front panel. It also beeps about every 30 minutes. I tried unplugging for 5 minutes with no luck. I replaced the main circuit board based on information found online, yet the problem still exists. Any help would be appreciated. Model number 106.57706701. Manufacture date 06/2007.

This is the one you need to fix it, that is in the dispenser area, this is commonly misdiagnosed

I replaced the board that you recommended. I still have the same problem. PF showing and will not reset. Beeps about every 20 minutes. I have now replaced both boards to the tune of 400 dollars. What now?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Other than a wire harness issue, not sure what would be causing that. Let me see if anyone else has an idea

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is it possible for this to happen if the battery is dead on the board? What about the board on the front that control the switches for ice and water. I have replaced everything else. This all happened after a Power Failure.
