Whirlpool electric range won't stop buzzing

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.

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

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

SOURCE: Clock on a GE electric range is buzzing - how to disconnect 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.

Our Viking range is all of a sudden making a buzzing/humming noise. It comes and goes as the unit is on. It seems to start when it reaches a certain temp. then it stops for awhile. Do you know what it...


If it comes from the control panel, it may be a transformer for the control electronics or a relay coil. Sometimes a relay or transformer mounted on sheet steel will vibrate if a mounting screw works loose. That's easy to fix. Occasionally a coil inside the relay or transformer will develop a loose winding - the best repair for that is get a new one.

If the buzzing is specific to one (electric) burner, it could be arcing at a bad connection.

Buzzing Noise coming from GE Stovetop.


It could be a loose transformer that needs to be remounted. Pull the stove out, remove all of the screws at the top and visually inspect the transformers and wiring. This should be an easy fix, but if you leave it too long then your stove will malfunction. I hope this helps at least get you to the next step.

Your control panel is getting ready to quit. Mine did the same thing, I ignored it and now nothing on the touch panel works. About $150.00 for the part.
