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.

Turn off the alarm eaton viking stove


This did not work for me. The alarm won't go off at all. The dial for the clock seems very loose - it stuck many times when I was turning the dial to change the time, and then it just got loose, and now the alarm won't go off. Please help!

Danfoss 103 timer is making a constant buzzing noise!!...everything's works fine but I want to stop this buzzing noise. Any actions I should take or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.


How much wattage is going through the timer and what is its rated load max? try unplugging whatever is plugged into it and see if it stops but if you exceeded the max load might be damage to the internals which can cause that buzz.

I have a hotpoint ff 175 bp and the temperature dial on the fridge has staerted to make an annoying and very loud constant buzzing sound with only stops when it is switched to zero.. which is no good...


You will have to dismantle the control box and see if the buzzing is coming from the cold control or from a defrost timer which is usually in the same area and is more commonly the cause of a loud buzzing. Whichever one it is you have to replace it right away. This is not a complete model number so if you need more help then post a full model number. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Jenn-air jes9800AAB keeps buzzzing, front function panel flashes on and off


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.
