OLD GE Oven, Model JBP22 002WH, Buzzer wont stop

This answer was rated:

I was cleaning my old GE oven, and in moving the knobs around, the timer suddenly started buzzing, and now I can't get it to stop. 
The full model number is XXXXX 002WH. In the center of the oven is a console with three timers - on the right side of the console is a full clock, with two orange hands and one white hand. To the left of that are two smaller, simplified clocks - one labeled START and one labeled STOP, and underneath those are the words "PUSH TO SET".

What position do these dials need to be in for the buzzer to stop?  It's the middle of the night, and the noise is annoying!

Hello I will be assisting you with this problem. This is an old GE clock and what you need to do is turn the Start knob around until is pops out and matches the time that the STOP knob is indicating. Then make sure the main clock dial is set to the off position If it is slightly to the right off the off position it will buzz. If you have the start and stop knobs correct you will not be able to turn either dial unless you press them in then you know you have them set correctly. Check it out and let me know.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX can spin the main clock dial several times counterclockwise, but the buzzing never stops. On two occasions, I was able to get the main clock dial to the OFF position and finessed the buzzer to stop, only to have it start again in a minute or two. I swear, I was just rubbing it with a rag to clean the top of the stove, and this thing just launched into orbit. Any ideas?
Ok this is problem with that clock there is a contact that in the clock that is bad. Does the clock actually still work and do you use the clock at all self/clean anything? Let me know.

I've lived in this apartment for two years, and never once used the clock or the timer. Tell me which wire to snip, and I'll snip it.
Ok I couldn't pull up your model so can you lift the burner top to get access to the clock? I am not sure what exact unit you have so if you can briefly standing range? gas/electric coil burners?

This manual is close to my model -

And here's the exploded diagram:*08/General-Electric-Parts-34065.cfm

It's got electric coil burners. I can't lift the top to get access to the clock, but I have removed the back panel to expose the wiring.
Yes, got it take the back off. Unplug it. You will see the clock. There are two wires going to a motor on one side. Clip either wire and tape off the wire with electrical tape. That should do it. Plug it back in and test it.

Let's use technology to its fullest extent. I've posted a photo of the guts of the clock to this link:

Just to be clear - you're saying cut either of the two black wires leading to the tubular unit labeled "74 E2", and then tape that wire off? I'm renting this unit and this isn't my oven, so I want to make absolutely sure I don't do anything that will cost me more than the $49 that you are DEFINITELY earning tonight, my friend.
Cut either of the two black wires going to the white motor block. Nice pic!! Then just tape or put a wire nut on it if you have one. That's it!!

Finally, some peace and quiet. It's 1:45 AM in my time zone - I hope it's not as late in yours. Thanks for your help. This is my first time to use this service, and it was definitely a cool experience. I appreciate it, Andy. Money well spent. I think I'm all fixed up.
