The clock on our Whirlpool is making a whirring, humming sound and will not stop. It gets louder and sounds as if it's going to take off, then slows down and gets quieter, but we cannot make it stop. We turned off the circuit breaker and it stopped for a while when we turned the circuit breaker back on, then it started up again. Help??!!

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.
I understand that the clock timer on your Electrolux oven has developed a loud humming sound. I also see that you are unable to set the clock or time, as it will jump back to 12:00 all the time. I see you want to fix this and want to know how to remove the front panel. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to diagnose your appliance and determine the problem with the clock/timer. Hope this is helpful.
Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.
the humming sound is coming from the "squirrel cage" fan in the back of the unit, there may be some resonance vibration from the fan this issue should be addressed by a qualified service tech, the whole wall oven needs to be pulled out, i would have him check the fan.
