High pitched noise from KitchenAid Oven

RE: KitchenAid Electric Range ProLine Series and Architect Series KESA907Purchased 5/2005
The oven makes a high-pitched whining noise during use and for about 10-15 minutes after use, on both the regular and the convection setting.  It is loud enough that I sometimes mistake it for the hood vent fan, though in reality it is not quite as loud.  Using the stovetop does not cause this sound.
We did not purchase this, it was in the apartment that we moved into in September 2008 and has always made this annoying noise at least since then.
Everything else seems to work fine.  Thanks

probably the clock not set properly - you have the oven on automatic. switch off at mains, wait 5 mins and set the clock according to the manual. if the over-temp stat has operated, the oven goes dead

SOURCE: Smeg oven problem

The pop would usually mean a busted fuse. Turn off the oven, disconnect completely from the power supply and then take it apart. See if you can find any toasted fuse or roasted wires. Also the reason for tripping the mains off is due to the fact that the oven is draining more power than it should. I would recommend a thorough inspection of the oven by an electrician..

Springs make a horrendous noise when you open the door. what is the best lube to use on them. grease or wd40?


The best repair is to replace the hinges and springs. If you do want to lubricate them do NOT use grease or wd40, these are flammable and do not mix well with heat.

Look up an appliance parts store in your city and pick up some high temperature copper or graphite based lubricant those are safe for use on oven hinges.

You will need a new igniter module. The igniter module is told to spark by the control panel. There is also a flame detection for electronic start and that could be bad too.
