Hi! My old school Admiral oven/stove top is having issues. I rent, so I don't want to bother my landlord until I have to - or know what to tell him. Basically, it won't heat anything substantially. The...

You need to contact the landlord and I will tell you why: The stove should not have issues above and below simultaneously. I comment you for not wanting to bother the landlord but I feel like you have an electrical problem. The oven not there and the top not there? You have a bad circuit breaker on that puppy. Takes a 50 amp 2 pole 240 volt breaker for an electric stove and only qualified schocktricians should fool with them. My opinion.

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

My wife and I are renting a house. The landlord told us that the water heater was recently replaced. The hot water smells pretty bad. The landlord says that the fowl smell is due to the anode rod in the...

Hi. Your landlord is correct. Anode rod can produce rotten-egg smell. Ask him if he can replace the "sacrificial" anode rod with "Power" anode rod or zinc/aluminum rod to get rid of the smell. However, you need to decide whether you tolerate the bad smell produced by anode rod or the minimal toxin produced by zinc/aluminum rod.

You can also try to drain/clean the tank first then add peroxide treatment and see if the smell goes away. If you do this method, the smell is more likely to come back if you go on vacation and left the heater unused for several days.

This article explains it better: Why Does My Water Smell Like Rotten Eggs (scroll down to page 2)

Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.

Gas stove makes clicking noise when turning on

When a gas stove is clicking, it means it is trying to ignite the burner. If the knob is held in the ignite position for more then 3 seconds and the burner does not ignite, it means that (1) the gas is shut off to the stove, (2) she does not have gas service set-up yet at the apartment, or (3) the gas nozzles feeding the burner are dirty and clogged.

Most of the time, when you move to a new apartment, you need to call the gas company and have the gas turned on, unless it is included in your rent. Either way, when a house or apartment is unoccupied, the gas is turned off for safety reasons. I would contact the landlord to be sure.

Oven wont turn on

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

Paint on stove top is coming off.

with smaller spots you can use appliance touch up paint and it should hold paint down and keep spots from getting bigger. Depending on how old the range is your landlord might be able to order a new top. I would voice my concern to the landlord and see what they might be willing to do to appease your concerns.

My Amana ceramic cooktop has one burner that is not working. I can't get the top off to look at the burners. How do you repair one burner on a ceramic cooktop?

Check your warranty first. Some burners on smooth tops had long warrantys. If not first turn the power off to the unit at the breaker. If this is a in counter cooktop it has to come out of the counter and take all the screws out that hold down the top. Best to unwire from house and move whole unit to big surface to work on.
