Caloric Gas Range/Timer Issue

Our Caloric gas range started automatically setting off the timer when the oven got hot. Now the timer beeper runs continuously when the range is plugged in. Is there a way to pull the timer fuse??? We don't really need the timer, but with the stove unplugged, none of the electric ignitors work, so if we could get rid of the constant beep, we would be alright until we can replace the range. Thanks!

Hello chazerae119 and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

Depending upon the age of the appliance and the model, you may be able to disconnect the clock timer. Unplug the stove. Access the timer and look for a quick disconnect wire terminal on the clock. Pull it off the clock and be sure it's wires will not come into contact with anything metal.

Doing this may cause some other functions and or operations to not work depending on the specific model and how it is wired. May be worth a try.

I doubt the link below will provide any help.
However, the phone number may. Call Maytags service number.

It worked!!!

Thanks so much, that worked!!! We took the plate off the back and there were 3 wires, a green, a black and a white. The green wire is the ground wire and we had to leave that one connected, however, we disconnected the black and white and although we have no clock or timer, the electric ignition is back and we can use the oven again with no loud beeping!!!
Thanks again for your help :-)
