    Default ARE35083 Old Admiral stove/oven gradually stopped working - fuse issue?

    Model # ARE35083 - circa 2001 Admiral oven and stove

    So we have an Admiral stove which is at least 15 years old. It had been working fine but at one point last year 2 of the burners stopped working. The stovetop light had stopped working a long time ago. We were fine just using the other ones. Then the other day, I was using the remaining 2 burners at the same time, and everything stopped working, from the oven to every stovetop burner to the manual timer. I tried resetting the breaker from the circuit panel but that did nothing. I saw something online about how some ovens have a reset button on the unit but I don't see anything like that. Anyway I figured since the last problem happened after a certain demand on several parts at once, it was probably a fuse issue so I bought a bunch of fuses to replace them, but turns out I have to go back to the store as they're not all the same wattage and I'm missing a few.

    So I was wondering if someone could please confirm that it's a simple fuse replacement issue before I go spending more money on fuses? It would be greatly appreciated as we are students with a low budget!

    Needless to say I know next to nothing about this stuff so please dumb it down a little lol!

    Have a fantastic day!

    Hi,

    Normally speaking fuses do not let go unless there is another problem. The fuse lets go to prevent something from coming on if it is shorted/burnt or such.
    For the timer, surface elements and oven to quit, sounds like something happened to the main power coming into the range. House fuse/breaker, burnt power cord, burnt wire where the power enters the range are possible trouble makers.
    So while you may have a bad fuse or two, it doesn't not sounds like the fuses are your only problem

    Thank you! Is it possible that the whole oven is blown out, i.e. irreparable? Or could it be just a matter of replacing one part that short-circuited? I'm going to test the wall plug today with a multimeter.

    A clock, control or relay board can let go and effect the whole oven....but would only be considered unrepairable if the part was No Longer Available or maybe too expensive.

    Good.
    Also test the power where the cable/cord enters the range.
    220-240 volts AC between red and black. 110-120 volts AC between red and white. 110-120 volts AC between black and white.
