I have an Admiral Designer Series electric stove that starting blazing when it was self cleaning. Now it has a F1 error and I think it also gives an F5 error too. Oven will no longer work. Please help!
f1 fualt code is a clock error f5 is a door latch error it most likely that the door latch is still sensing that it is locked if so when put back on clean latch should lock and unlock constantly no t allowing anything to occur or the thermal high temperature saftey thermostat is opened up causingthe oven not ot function if you are handy and have a multimeter i could assist you further otherwise it might be best to call in a tech to look at the problem hope this helps and is an acceptible answer if so please click accept and thank you Kevin if you do want to proceed feel free to ask for more advice

I would like your help in trying to fix this myself, but I don't have a multimeter.

Where could I borrow or rent one? If I got one, would I just continue to contact you here for more help? Otherwise, considering the cost of calling a Tech, I would probably just buy another stove.

you should be able to buy a low cost multimeter for about 10 to 15 dollars yes you can always ask for info on here

Hi Kevin,

Well I ended up finding a Tech who diagosed me without a charge. The multimeter thing was way out of my league! He told me to try unplugging it for a least 20 minutes and maybe the computer would reset itself. It that doesn't work, I'm looking at about $250 to $300 in parts and labor. So I'm off to shop for a new one...with mixed emotions!:)


Thanks for all your help!
