Customer Question

I have a Tappan gas range purchased in 1993 (model 30-2251-00/07). Of late the digital clock/timer has been squealing continuously while in clock mode. The only way to stop this very annoying sound is to turn on the timer and set it to the maximum time of 1:59. When the timer completes the countdown it beeps as it should, but turning it back to clock begins the squealing again. Can I disconnect the "alarm" without disconnecting the clock/timer completely?

Reply to a1speedyappliance's Post: You "expert", Bryan, was going to look up the model number to give me an answer to my question. He has not yet gotten "back to me". When he does answer my question, I'll pay him. In extension to my question, can I disconnect the clock without disabling the rest of the electrical system? If so, how?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
I'm sorry got tied up working . I just looked at your clock asm. and its digital but I think you can diconect the buzzer without any damage to clock. go to www.repairclinic.com and you can enter your model and bring up picture of your clock.looking at back view of clock you can see a round disk shape on left I believe thats your beeper. there are a red and a black wire . make sure oven is diconected from wall when you do this. cut one of the wires and see if it stops . if it does then you can test everything else like bake / broil they should work alright. your clock should work okay too. if they dont you will have to replace clock to stop noise. you may want to make sure thats where niose is coming from before cutting wire . good luck and sorry again for not getting right back to you, Bryan p.s I 'm not 100% sure about the disk on back is beeper so after you get back off stove plug it back in and make sure that the disk is making the noise! take a wooden dowl and put it on disk and listen to it. dont touch anything bare electrical , be carefull! I just want you to make sure the noise is coming from disk.
