Do you feel a rotten egg smell. It must be gas leak. Have your gas lines checked.
Good Luck

This sounds like your control panel got some moisture in it! un plug from outlet overnight! Do not spray cleaners directly on control panel! somtimes its just from cooking steam
Sure hope this fixes ya up!

This may be a high pressure gas leak, turn off the gas, if the noise goes away then u have a gas valve leak in the stove.

Is there a gas leak?  Sometimes natural gas lines get a white chalky substance buildup and make a whistling noise when the appliance is turned on.  Usually if you turn the flow of gas up it will go away.  I would immediately verify there are no leaks.

Why does our new frigidaire gas stove bggf3042kf make a high pitch whistle when the oven is heating?


Could be some blocked vents on the burner. Remove the burner and make sure all the gas vents are clean and clear.

The Jenn Air Gas Range that I have is making a high pitched whistling sound when its turned on. It may do this right when it turned on or sometimes it can take a minute or two. This sound will go on


There is a gas regulator on the unit. This might be defective.
Call an appliance repair guy to diagnose. Gas is very dangerous and can explode.

Dog very disturbed by new oven being turned on. No discernile noise to humans. Any ideas?


is the range electric? if you have an electric stove your dog may be hearing high frequencies that are inaudible to humans. If it is a gas stove it could still be making high pitch sounds as the gas flows through small pilot holes to stove top. If it is electric there is not much you can do besides not using it or getting another. on a gas stove you could try increasing or decreasing the amount of gas flow from the valve on wall. or have a service tech take a look for you.

My oven won't heat


First you will need to verify if the igniter is coming on for the oven burner when the oven is turned on. You will need to remove the oven bottom cover. There is usually two screws at the back bottom of the oven compartment that holds the bottom on. If there are no screws then it should just lift out. You may need to slide the bottom away from you then lift from the back. You will need to remove the oven racks to make enough room to lif the bottom out. Once removed you should be able to see the burner(you may also need to remove a heat spreader on the burner). Now turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start to glow. If it does then you will need to make sure the gas orfice and venturri for the burner are not plugged with debris. You can use a small can of compressed air to try and dislodge any debris. Then give the oven gas valve a light tap with a screwdriver or a wrench. Oven gas valve is usually located at the bottom of the oven. Remove the bottom storage compartment to reach it. If you tap it and the burner comes on there may have just been debris in the valve and you may have cleared it. Then turn the oven off and back on completely several times. If the burner comes back on you should be ok if it does not then it could be a weak hot surface igniter or a bad olven gas control valve. Now going back to the start if the igniter does not come on you will need to verify if the igniter is getting voltage. If it is then test the igniter with a ohm meter. The reading should usually be between 500 to 700 ohms. A common problem with hot surface igniters is that they will crack. Examine the igniter for any visible cracks. If the igniter is not getting voltage then you will need to verify that all wires are properly connected and none have come loose. Look for any melted wires from the self cleaning process. You may need to dis-assemble the back of the range to see if any wires have come loose or melted. Now I need to stress to you that safety is important. Be very careful performing these procedures. You can get shocked or possible burned.

Stove/oven gets hot then shuts off


Shut the breaker off! These are the exact symptoms that a tenant of ours reported for their range. I went to check the range and found that one of the power wires on the terminal block in the back of the range was burning itself up. It had actually started a small wire fire. You need to pull the range out of it's hole and unplug it. Remove the panel in the back above where the cable goes into the range. Examine the power wires and terminal block carefully, because I bet you'll find one of the wires is burning up and needs to be repaired. Please write back and let know what you find.

Hotpoint Range NOISE problem


I found the solution. The mercury light (according to my land lord) has crude and build up on it. This was located beneath the oven in the broiler. When it was cleaned the ringing stopped.
