Hello, All.  

To begin let everyone know, that doesn't already know, that I am NOT a technical guy.  I thought I could avoid RFI problems with a new range by going with gas instead of electric but the control panel on the gas range is putting out lots of noise.  With the help of a local ham we identified it as the noise source using an MFJ-852 Line Noise Meter.  Confirmed by shutting off circuit breaker to the range and the noise disappeared.

I have searched the reflector archives (gas, range, rfi-gas range, etc.) and have found nothing on this.  Nothing found on the Google.  The noise is present from the 40m band up through the 10m band.  The spikes show and move on the Pro III display. 

Range is under warranty so I can't just go in and start adding toroids, etc.  Have any of you had this problem with this range?  An RFI problem with a GE product?  If so, who at GE did you contact?  If not, can someone suggest a course of action in finding out who at GE might handle such a problem?  And, how best to state the problem to them?  That GE might simply, ahem, turn a deaf ear to my complaint does not seem unlikely. 

Any assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks.
