    Yes, I have the same problem. It is from the mechanical clock. How to get rid of it. It is just annoying!

    Is it a buzzing or a high pitched whine? I have the very high pitched whining sound when the oven gas turns on (not the range top). Anyone else?

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.

Why does my whirlpool gas range have buzzing noise from control panel

Probably have a bad transformer on the control board. You would have to replace the control board.

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.

Hello- Gas valves sometimes find a flow rate or valve position that can cause noises from hums to screeches. However- if control is out, gas valve won't function normally anyway.

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.
