HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:
-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

is this showing an error code ? can you get me model #? thanks Bryan
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Model #3121WTV ...

 

By the way, I wanted to give more info before but hit the 'enter' button to create a new paragraph & my question was submitted instead.

 

There is an electronic clock/timer on the right side of the back of the stove. This morning the clock started beeping, even though I hadn't set an alarm (don't know how to), and it wasn't set on the 'timer' function.

 

I tried switching over to the timer function & then back to clock to see if that would reset it but it didn't work.

 

Currently, the only way I can keep the clock from beeping is to set it on the timer but it only works for 59 minutes, until the timer beeper goes off.

 

Not a good scene. Also, I tried unplugging it but it didn't seem to do anything to fix the problem.

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
is this the timer (clock) ? yours may be different color. let me know ,thanjks Bryan
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No, it's an older model ( I bought it used.)

 

It has exterior, buttons: on the left round buttons, one for hour, one for minutes; on the right there's a button that slide up and down, up for clock & down for timer.

 

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
do you use the timer ? you have seperate controls for the oven right?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No, I don't use the timer normally.

The oven (and stove top) is gas and has separate old-style knobs on the front, not little electronic push-in buttons.

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
thats good , I have to step out for about and hor, when I return I'll tell you how to disconnect it if you dont need it. let me know and I'll check back when i return. thanks Bryan

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Bryan,

My husband took off a metal box & there are wires coming out of it. Three appear to be going up to the clock.

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
ok what color are they?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Sorry Bryan,

I got disconnected, had to leave & just got back.

Looks like my fellow followed your lead & disconnected something...no more beeps!

Thank you for your guidance and

Happy Easter.
