Question about Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

Gas range makes buzzing sound which goes away when disconnected from electrical outlet.

My gas range started making a buzzing sound which is similar to the timer and is originating from behind the clock area. However, adjusting the clock and timer buttons does not eliminate the sound. Disconnecting the range from the electrical outlet is the only way to quiet the sound.

    I have the same problem with a Whirlpool Electric range. The noise isn't constant. Sometimes I will plug it in with no noise but within a few hours or even a day or so later, the sound will start again.

    my problem is similar. The buzz sound only goes away when I lock the cooktop.

    Any idea on what could be the problem?

Call the manufacturer. Chances are it's a common problem and they already know about it.

Kenmore gas stove makes a buzzing sound

Is the door locked?? Is it an electronic buzzer sound??

hold the CLEAR button for 3 seconds - the door will unlock.
open the door - and press CLEAR for 3 seconds.
Error code may come up.... close and re-open the door.

Are there any indications on the display?

Or is this a mechanical buzzing from underneath? in this case your gas regulator's diaphragm has failed.

If the above reset doesnt wokr (and the sound is electric) your circuit board will need replacement.

Buzzing noise

The buzzing you are experiencing is most likely the electric valve solenoid coil.
That is the valve that lets gas in when the stove is turned on.
Another source of buzzing/humming can be a mechanical clock, if hter is one.
If it is digital, then it woul not make noise.

Oven not working -makes a buzzing sound when turned OFF!

You just need to adjust your door latch assm. Try putting a little oil on the latch and arm. The sound you hear is the solenoid trying to pull the latch arm all the way back to lock the door. Even though it is pulling the arm back and the door locks it may not be all the way back. A little lubrication will fix the problem.

Does the knob control both the gas and spark, try turning on the knob only, if it starts to spark right away then it is possible that the switch is bad. because most of these units are designed where you turn on the gas then push in and hold the knob to ignite then release and spark should stop.

Premier Pro•Series 36" Model P36S318BP

Sounds like you have shorted out the ignitor module and you may need to replace it. Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into. Hope this helps.
