Question about Whirlpool RF365 Electric Kitchen Range
My electric range buzzes constantly. It seems to be coming from the clock, dial area. Unplugging it for a while used to solve the problem but even that doesn't work anymore. Is this an expensive repair? Would I be better off with a new model. This unit is about 9 years old.
SOURCE: 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.

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

Turn off power to range first!!!
You'll have to remove the back of the panel in which the clock is installed to access the back of the clock. There will be two wires attached to the clock. Just pulling one of these wires off will stop the clock.
I would suggest, however, that you pull both wires off, put electrical tape on the ends of the connectors, and tuck them out of the way somewhere around the clock.
