Hi Thanks for that. I dont have any info on this model as i think its a US model so i will opt out and another expert will pick this up for you. Regards
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It is a US model, it was made in Mexico if that helps.
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Are you certain the buzzing is coming from the range? The only way it would be able to make any noise would be through vibrations if it is unplugged. If you remove the racks and the lower drawer, does the sound go away?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it is definatly coming from the range,it has been unplugged for 3 days
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Does it change if you remove the racks or the drawer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes it it louder
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Can you tell from what part of the range it is coming from?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
inside lower
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Can you remove the drawer and feel the floor under the range, does it feel like it is vibrating at all?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
already tried,i didn't feel anything
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it is like a warning buzzer,like in a bad hearing aid
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Does it follow the range if you move the range out from its current location?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i moved it across my kitchen already,yes it is in the range.I am going to have to put it outside eventually
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
This range has an electronic oven timer. There is no old style buzzer. I am baffled how it could make noise when there is no power to it. Just to verify and meaning no disrespect at all whatsoever, are you certain you unplugged the correct cord? It should be a very large cord for 240 VAC service.

oh yes it is unplugged,i hear you.I have moved it across my kitchen.I am very confused myself.no power for several days now
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am the only one living hear so no one is playing a joke on me lol
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
I am really sorry, I have no clue what may be causing it if it is unplugged. The only thing I can think of is vibration from the floor that is migrating through the frame of the range. If it follows the range, that theory is out. I am very, very intrigued as to what may be causing it!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
so am I thanks for trying
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
I will place your question back to the list for others to see in case someone else has an idea. I sure would like to know the end result, though. I will follow this thread and if you figure it out, can you post back?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
of course

Thank you.
