Customer Question
Diconnecting the timer wiring...

Diconnecting the timer wiring as buzzer won't stop. It's an older model Hotpoint range.

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I have the back upper panel off and range unplugged. front knobs have been removed some time ago; therefore, was not able to turn off timer switch, even tried small wrench. Just want to disconnect timer wire since we never use it.

Contractor's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Appliance Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Sure.

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

That brings nothing up it should be some thing like WR??X ?????

Hot point is made by GE and that would be a GE type part number.

ok now that shows up as a selector switch not a timer.

Could you take a photo of the back side of the entire timer?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

that would be great I just need to see the back clearly and then I think I can tell you which wire or wires to remove to kill the buzzer solenoid.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
