I have a 2002 GE gas range that has recently begun coming on randomly. I am aware that it is the thermostat. In the meantime will unplugging the range from the electric outlet prevent it from coming on? It does not operate from a pilot light. Thanks!

Yes it will.

Yes, it will likely need that, for sure check the wiring to make sure none has been cut and shorted to the metal framing...

Thanks for your reply. One more question, is there any risk of a gas leak if I don't turn the gas off as well?
