Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have an Admiral Designer Series Electric Range Model #68-456747 purchased at Montgomery Ward in 1996 (?) Recently the oven has not been browning evenly, especially at temps above 375 degrees. I am not sure if it is the top element or the thermostat that is not working, but sometimes the food is burnt on the bottom, but raw on the top, even when I move the rack all the way to the top. it seems when the top element is not heating properly that the bottom element gets really hot, maybe trying to compensate and get the oven up to temp?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi
This indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the sensor is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Can anyone tell me what size table saw a Montgomery Ward Powr Kraft, it looks like model tpf34867, would be? Maybe 8, 9, pr 10 inch.


Ask around your friends and associates for a used 10" blade and see if it will fit.
Back when those were made, most all were 10".
The saws using smaller blades of 8 or 9 are much more recently produced.
God bless your efforts

Wick and manual for Montgomery Wards Windsor kerosene heater


Hi, I have a Montgomery Ward Sunheat heater. It's a dual burner enclosed type with a door on the front. The fuel tank is cylindrical and about 1 1/2 - 2 gallons. The cap has a needle valve and when turned upside down releases fuel to the burners by gravity. The whole heater itself is rectangular with louvers on the sides and top. I don't know what wicks go in this or if there are compatible replacements out there.
No 84ALO5800A is the only I.D. or Model No.
Thanks,
Jack

Hello Friends Creek.
Welcome to Fixya
You said, you used the self cleaning selection on my Admiral Designer Series gas range. The oven went through the complete cycle of 3 hours. You then unlocked the door and was able to open the oven door no problem. Later on you went to use the oven, pushed the bake button and the lock light would flash. And you could not get past that to get the oven to come on.

You did the right thing to turn off the electricity and then turned it back on.
Did you wait 5 minutes before turning the power back on?Or just flick it off and on?
You said, the lock light still blinked.
But did it lockup again?

Please send me the model and year of your range.
