Customer Question

We used our Calorific range to cater our NYE party last evening and woke up to hear an unusual whirring noise coming from under the hood. It sounds like a fan but I can't make it stop. Can you help?

Hi, my name isXXXXX am hoping that I will be able to help you with your problem today..

 

 

Thank you for using JustAnswer's for your appliance questions, Myself and all the other experts are anxious to help you with your problem today. If you will please explain your problem and the model and serial number we can get started...

 

 

LOCATE YOUR RANGE/STOVE/OVEN MODEL NUMBER

First, here are some tips to help with your model number:

 

1. Don't enter a dash if it's not required.

2. Don't enter any blank spaces.

3. Be sure a zero is not the letter O.

4. Be sure a lower case L is not a 1.

5. Kenmore models always have a 3 digit prefix such as 110 or 665, then a period, then more numbers.

 

Next, look for an aluminum tag--or a silver or white adhesive label. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and it may be written in two different type sizes or styles.

 

You might find the tag in one of these places:

 

Cooktop/Range/Stove

 

Gas:

 

* Inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up

* On the outside, bottom of the unit

* Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a "downdraft" unit

 

Electric:

 

* Under one of the surface burners, or inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up

* On the outside, bottom of the unit

* Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a "downdraft" unit

 

Gas or Electric Oven

 

* On oven side of the door jamb (with the door open)

* On the lower drawer jamb (with the bottom drawer open

Is this a range or built double oven?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It's a freestanding gas range (with stove and oven)
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
This is going to be a bad motor on the clock, however there are no parts available for this old unit any more, you are going to be stuck buying a new unit to replace the range, sorry about the info on that though... Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR...
