Either there's ashort in the stove top or the wiring going to the appliance. Sorry but I would have to see it to see exactly how to fix the problem. the top needs to be removed and inspect the wiring to it. Test the top with a voltmeter forshorts.

My Frigidaire stove suddenly makes a noise of ***~~~~ sounds.


Good Afternoon Isaac, thank you for your submission!
I see that your Frigidaire stove is not working but the broil light is on. I would suggest disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes this is how to perform a factory reset. The factory reset may help clear out any miscommunication within the range and allow it to continue to operate properly. If the reset does not help resolve your issue I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis. I hope the information I have provided is helpful to you. -Matt

Amana counter top gas stove when plugged in start making clicking noise and you can smell gas .


on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out repairclinic.com for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.

Front burner won't ignite when turned on.


Hello there:
if you Heard or seen this poping you probably have shorted out the ignitor mechanism You can try unplugginh the stove and removing the part and inspecting it and see if it can be cleaned and doubkle check the wiring to see ithatthey are not greasy or there is any buiold up on the wires then reinsert the part and see if it will work now but if not you will have to replave the ignitor ok
If you have a local appliance repair center you should be able to get the part from there if not go online and go to www.repair clinic.com youcan order it from them ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

Stove not on - but fan comes on automatically -


it sounds as if the thermostat is broke. it could be the two wires off the thermostat are after melting together. ( burning smell). the thermostat stops power going to fan when it sences below a certain degrees. but your one has been cut out of the circuit due to the two cables melting together. this means fan will constantly stay on. you need to find and replace thermostat and make sure no cables melted together. if they are then seperate and use insulating tape to re insulate.make sure circuit breaker is off while doind this
