I have a 30" wolf stove. My wife was cleaning around the burners, and then lit them after she was done. Now the igniter will not turn off, even after the gas it turned off. Any idea how to at least stop it until I can get a repair person here?

I have a Whirlpool refer that is 22 years old, but has been

Hello. I have a Whirlpool refer that is 22 years old, but has been problem free. I have limited resources and can't afford to buy a new one, so I'm trying to decide if it is worth fixing, or just buy a used one off craigslist. The circuit board for defrosting has been clicking on and off more frequently, and the other nite, it would not stop clicking. When I woke up the entire refer wasn't running- no compressor, no fan- and everything was slowly warming. Ice was melted, but food in the freezer was still mostly frozen, so I put it in a chest freezer I have. I think it is the circuit board/defrost, since that is what was clicking non-stop,but I'm not sure. Does that make sense?? Thanks

I actually just found a similar issue on thesite from three

Hi, I actually just found a similar issue on thesite from three years ago. My chest freezer is not cooling at all. I got it second hand. The drier and some of the other copper tubing has green corrosion on it. THe previous owner said it was working prior to them unplugging it. But it sat for about a year without being plugged in. Now it does not get cold. Would I want to look into the same solution of getting the drier filter replaced and a freon recharge? or would it be more cost effective to just scrap the freezer?JA: What's the make and model? And have you checked the settings recently?Customer: Frigidaire LFFC09M5HWN. the freezer was unplugged for a year I turned the thermostat down to it's highest setting but nothing has really happened. They had wired an external thermostat to the power cord to use the freezer for a beer tap. I disconnected that and wired the power cable back to factory. The unit is turning on and I can hear something is on when it's plugged inJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: If possible.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: nope that's about it
