The gas range was in normal use, with the oven on but no burners going. My wife was in another room and heard buzzing and popping sounds, and entered the kitchen to find the range smoking and with flames coming from the back left corner. She grabbed the fire extinguisher but the flames had subsided by that time. I arrived home from work about 3-4 minutes later and pulled the range out to disconnect the plug and turn off the gas service. I could see smoke and what appeared to be electrical arcing marks at the back left side where the electrical power cord entered the unit.

The next morning I removed the unit back and could see that the entire wiring harness was melted, plastic harness connectors had melted, and various wires were severed by the fire.
