    2-month old maytag wall oven, a faint but clearly audible buzz started coming from the control panel this evening

    I've flipped the breaker off then back, no change, and now I've flipped it off, going to try overnight and check in the morning.. anyone have an idea?

    No idea what your issue could be, but my step-mother-in-law's fried itself, it took about 2 months to get the wrong part in then another 2 months which consisted of two more visits including another wrong part and someone who couldn't put the thing together. Or something like that. It was a long saga. Good luck. /unhelpful commentary.

    The first thing that comes to mind is the clean lock latch solenoid, but if you took power off the oven it would have stopped. Are you sure you are flipping the correct breaker?

    As far as I know there is nothing in the oven that would make any noise with the power removed. I would check to see if it was something else near the oven.

    The only thing I think of that could be buzzing without current is a mechanical timer (think toaster). Is this oven's timer electronic?

    Otherwise, you may have a loose part that vibrates with the refrigerator.

    All I can really add is that...

    Anyone with a moniker of ()smoke() that is having oven problems should DEFINITELY call the oven professionals!

    Just sayin'... :)

    LOL I thought the same thing. :D

    LA had a good thought with the clock. I 'assumed' all ovens had digital clockes these days.

    If it's two months old it's under warranty. Call Maytag.

    We recently had our oven control panel replaced and the repair man advised us to never use the "self-clean" function. Apparently the self-cleaning function tends to fry the control panel, and is really bad for the oven in general.

    i think that may be exactly it--the noise has stopped when i turned the breaker back on this morning, but i did start the self-clean yesterday before the noise started, only to stop it after just few minutes, i was just making sure it would work...i realize that the buzzing started right after i stopped the self-clean cycle

    --regarding the power, when i said i turned the breaker off then back, i meant off then back on, with no change when it kicked back on--until this morning that is

    i'll probably call maytag anyway, don't know if i can replicate it, but might be good to get a new board put in now rather than chance paying for it later

    that does kind of set the stage for some kind of story here, doesn't it?

    Go to repairclinic.com - you will find the answers you need there.

    With their help I fixed my washer, dryer, dishwasher and fridge. Probably saved a couple of thousand doing it myself.

    Within a year of your purchase, manufacturers are responsible for manufacturing defects. It would be a worthwile investment to ask the retailer or service center about this.
