Question about GE Kitchen Ranges
I have a Hotpoint model # RS74200505 and the clock located on the front of the oven panel starting making a humming noise, not the buzzing noise when you set the minute timer buts continues to hum constantly, the oven and the stove both work, it is just this annoying humming from the clock. How can we stop 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.

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.

I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

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.
