The back panel of the main oven houses the circulating fan. From experience, fat/grease/gunge accumulates and drips down the inside of the plate through the vents. This will then rub on the fan as it turns. There are four self tapping screws, one in each corner of the panel. Remove the screws and the panel will come off. That is the easy bit, getting rid of the grease is harder. Don't forget that the oven side of the panel is a stay clean and shouldn't be cleaned with anything abrasive. I use the Lakeland brush on oven cleaner on ALL the walls of the oven (even the Stay Clean) and it works a treat. It may take some time to disolve the residue and a couple of goes, but it does work.

    Sorry , just reread your problem. Forget what I said earlier. The clock is the only thing that should be on. Are you sure there are not any other external things behind the oven that can cause this?

My wall oven is making a constant unusual noise


Without a model number its hard to be exact. If your oven is older it will have a clock timer motor that turns the dials or flips the clock display cards. This timer has gears and bushings that will be annoying as they wear and start a vibrating hum or clicking-usually not worth tinkering with..it can be taken out and checked or replaced. Electronic timers of course don't have any moving parts to the timer, but have relays in the circuit to turn the oven on and off. They do not 'whir'. This is the likely issue.
Repost..let us know.

Kitchenaid superba oven


It is very possible that moisture from the cleaning has caused the ignition switches to make enough resistance to cause the burners to spark. It usually goes away after the stove has dried out. If it continues after a day or so one or more of the ignitor switches may need replacing.

I have a 1960s GE P7 oven that will not heat. How can I test the WB 22x53 switch? Could it be the latch release switch or the oven temp rheostat? The oven makes a humming noise when the dial is turned...


you can test any switch or relay or capacitors on the control board with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting. If low or no resistance, then it is bad. You can get any parts and manual at repairclinic.com or appliance411.com

Wolf oven - oven clicks continuously


This sounds like you have a flame switch getting ready to go out. The reason you are hearing the ticking noise is that after the ignition is satisfied the flame switch is not detecting and sending a signal to continue to try for ignition.
