Admiral Oven Is Not Working [Proven Solutions]

There are multiple possible reasons why your Admiral oven is not working. In this article, we will look at them and show you how to fix them.

Electric Admiral Oven Is Not Working — Causes And Solutions

Below, we talk about the possible reasons why your electric Admiral oven is not working and what to do about them.

1. Bake Element

The bake element is the main heating component in an electric Admiral oven. If the bake element fails, the oven won’t work. To determine if the bake element is the cause of the problem, test it using a multimeter. If the multimeter doesn’t show a reading, the bake element is faulty. Read this article: Admiral Oven Element [How To, Issues & Proven Solutions] to replace the bake element in your Admiral oven.

2. Wires

If your Admiral oven is not working but the bake element isn’t faulty, check the wires next. Disconnect the oven’s power and remove the lower rear access panel. Inspect the wires connected to the terminals of the bake element. Damaged wires could cause your Admiral oven not to work. If there are any cuts or burns on the bake element’s wires, contact a technician to fix them.

3. Thermal Fuse

A faulty thermal fuse is another possible reason why your Admiral oven won’t work. The thermal fuse usually burns out or blows because of high temperatures, or a power outage. Below, we show you how to replace the thermal fuse in your Admiral oven…

Step 1: Disconnect the oven’s power. You can do this by switching the circuit breaker off or unplugging the power cord from the outlet.

Step 2: Pull the oven away from the wall and get a Philips head screwdriver.

Step 3: Go to the oven’s rear.

Step 4: Using the Philips head screwdriver, take out the screws which hold the oven’s upper access panel in place.

Step 5: Set the panel aside.

Step 6: The thermal fuse is located somewhere near the terminals of the broil element. Disconnect the two wires from the terminals of the thermal fuse. If the wires are difficult to pull off, use a pair of needle nose pliers.

Step 7: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the lowest ohms setting.

Step 8: Touch the probes of the multimeter to the thermal fuse’s terminals. If the multimeter doesn’t show a reading when you do this, it’s faulty and should be replaced.

Step 9: Use the Philips head screwdriver to take out the screw which holds the thermal fuse to the oven’s rear.

Step 10: Remove the thermal fuse.

Step 11: Get a new thermal fuse for your Admiral oven.

Step 12: Position the fuse on the oven’s rear.

Step 13: Secure it using the Philips head screw.

Step 14: Connect the wires to the terminals of the new thermal fuse.

Step 15: Reposition the oven’s upper rear panel and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 16: Plug the oven’s power cord back in or switch the circuit breaker on.

Step 17: Return the oven to its usual position.

Also follow the steps above to replace the thermal fuse if your Admiral oven is not working after self cleaning or your Admiral oven is not working after a power outage.

Watch the video below for a visual of how to replace the thermal fuse in your Admiral oven.

4. Control Board

If your Admiral oven is not working but the components above aren’t faulty, the control board is probably the cause of the problem. The electronic control board sends voltage to the bake element. When the bake element receives the voltage, it starts to heat. Without the voltage, the element won’t work. Read this article: Admiral Oven Element [How To, Issues & Proven Solutions] to replace the control board in your Admiral oven.

Admiral Gas Oven Is Not Working — Causes And Solutions

Below, we have listed the possible reasons why your Admiral gas oven is not working and what to do about them.

1. Igniter

The igniter lights the gas sent from the safety valve in order to produce a flame. If your Admiral gas oven is not working, the igniter is the first component to check. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to test and replace the igniter in your Admiral oven…

Step 1: Shut off the oven’s gas supply for safety.

Step 16: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the lowest ohms setting.

Step 17: Touch the two multimeter probes to the pins in the igniter’s wire plug. If the multimeter doesn’t show a reading when you do this, the igniter is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 18: Get a new igniter for your Admiral oven.

Step 19: Position the the igniter on the burner tube and hold it in place with the two screws.

Step 20: Take the burner assembly back to the oven.

2. Safety Valve

If the igniter isn’t faulty but your Admiral oven is not working, the next component to check is the safety valve. Since the valve sends gas to the igniter to light, the oven won’t work if it stops working. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to test and replace the safety valve in your Admiral oven…

Step 1: Shut off the gas supply. Make sure you always do this before working on a gas oven.

Step 2: Also unplug the power cord from the outlet to avoid the risk of electrocution.

Step 6: Disconnect the wires connected to terminals of the safety valve.

Step 7: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the lowest setting for ohms.

Step 8: Touch the two multimeter probes to the terminals of the safety valve. If you don’t see a reading on the multimeter’s display when you do this, the safety valve is faulty.

Step 9: Open the oven door.

Step 10: Take out the two oven racks.

Step 11: Lift the bottom panel out of the oven and set it aside.

Step 12: Unscrew the burner shield.

Step 13: Also take out the screws which hold the burner tube assembly in place if there are any.

Step 16: Take out the two Philips head screws which hold the safety valve to the oven’s rear.

Step 17: Remove the valve and get a new one for your Admiral oven.

Step 18: Position the valve on the oven and hold it in place with the two Philips head screws.

Step 19: Reconnect the gas tube to the safety valve.

Step 20: Connect the wires to the terminals of the safety valve.

Step 21: Reposition the access cover and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 22: Go to the oven’s interior.

Step 23: Reposition the burner tube and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 24: Return the burner shield and secure with the screw or screws.

Step 25: Lift the bottom panel back into the oven.

Step 26: Slide the two racks back into the oven.

Step 27: Shut the oven door.

Step 28: Plug the oven’s power cord back into the outlet.

Step 29: Turn on the gas supply.

Step 30: Return the oven to its usual position.

3. Wires

If both the igniter and safety valve aren’t faulty but your Admiral oven is not working, the wires should be checked next. Inspect the wires connected to the safety valve and igniter. If you notice that the wires are burnt, cut, or damaged in any way, contact a technician to fix them.

4. Pressure Regulator

The pressure regulator regulates the pressure of the gas sent to the igniter. If the regulator fails, the gas pressure may be so low that the oven won’t work. Since the pressure regulator can’t really be tested, check the components above before replacing it. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to replace the pressure regulator of your Admiral oven…

Step 14: Apply the sealant on the other two ends of the pressure regulator.

Step 15: Position the pressure regulator on the oven’s rear and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 16: Reconnect the two gas lines to the pressure regulator. The sealant you applied on the pressure regulator will stop the gas from the leaking.

Step 17: Plug the oven’s power cord back into the outlet.

Step 18: Turn the oven’s gas supply back on.

Step 19: Return the oven to its usual position.

Watch the video below for a visual of how to replace the pressure regulator in an Admiral oven.

5. Control Board

If the components above aren’t faulty but your Admiral oven is not working, the control board is most likely faulty. The control board sends voltage to every component in the oven. If the control board fails, the oven won’t work. Read the “Admiral Oven Element” article in the “Electric Admiral Oven Is Not Working” section above to replace control board in your Admiral oven.
