Humming oven clock

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??!!

You'll need a new clock motor or clock unit. Once these units begin to hum, they must be replaced. Parts are available on the web, through supply stores or Sears Parts.

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 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.

Clock timer etc; on the oven has developed a loud humming sound & cannot be set as it jumps back to 12:00 all the time

Good Morning Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

I have an accubake electric oven. The lower heating element will not turn on. The timer and clock etc. work. It is a new appliance.

It sounds like the electronic timer/clock is in the automatic mode. It must be in the manual mode for the oven to work.

The oven is not getting to temperature

Check the breakers/fuses that supply the power to the oven. It sounds like it is not getting enough power.
Good luck!

Whirlpool built-in double oven model# RBD305PDB12

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.
