I recently noticed a continuous clicking/ticking noise behind my gas stove. If you stand in front of the stove and focus, you can hear it. To hear it really well, you have to lean in towards the stove. Definitely not metal expanding/contracting. I don't smell any gas. However, I don't think this is normal. Also, it is not the clock. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

    That might be the case if it was intermittent. LHS, please describe the sound more thoroughly in your question. How loud? How regular? Truly continuous (24/7)? If not, is it associated with stove usage, HVAC cycles, etc? Does the stove have a mechanical clock? – isherwood Feb 14 at 15:47

    Please revise your question to include the new information. It's not conspicuous down here. Be sure to address all my questions. – isherwood Feb 14 at 16:38

  • Not sure how that happened, but requested merge. Also, I'd like to delete the question. Decided to unplug the stove to see if it would stop. It did. @isherwood was closest because the sound was coming from near the clock housing. Go figure... Thank you all for your suggestions to help pinpoint the issue. – LHS Feb 19 at 14:00
