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?
I decided to unplug the stove to see if it would stop. It did. @isherwood was closest with his suggestion because the sound was coming from near the clock housing where all the mechanical components are located. Go figure... Thank you all for your suggestions to help pinpoint the issue.
