Hey folks,

Have a 10 year old Admiral Electric Range. Recently the oven temp has gone out of sync with the temperature setting dial.

Can anyone offer any insight or point me to a link that offers instructions for adjusting the temperature setting.

Thanks much,

DanO

** 10 year old Admiral Electric Range. **

I'm afraid that is not information to identify your particular appliance, what is needed is its complete model number was written on its model and serial number identification tag.

You can find tips for locating that information on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** instructions for adjusting the temperature setting. **

That will depend on what exact type of control system is used in whatever model of range your have. You can read about several different ways it might be done at the following link:

Oh, a *Canadian* Admiral range!

I'm afraid I do not know what type of control is used on that model. There may be calibration adjustments on the underside of the knob, the adjustment screw may be down through the center of the thermostat shaft (requiring a special screwdriver) or no adjustment at all. It would have to be looked at to find out.

Exactly how much is the temperature off and what are you measuring it with? Those cheap, store-bought thermometers are notorious for being inaccurate. I wouldn't suggest you use one to try to manually calibrate an $115+ oven thermostat or you may make it totally unusable. 8^(

I looked a bit closer at the center of the knob control pin and discovered that it does in fact have a hole. At first look it appeared to be solid but at closer inspection I found that it was filled with a soft material that could be picked out.

I think I'm in business. Thanks for the help
