Hi, the provided model number is ***** coming up on any database? Would you double check the number from the sticker on the machine? Thank you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From the oven model# *****
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. 30" electric range correct? Where is the noise coming from? The control panel area? Have you flipped the breaker for the oven off for 2-3 minutes and turn it back on yet?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Has been off for 5 + min. Sounds like it is inside oven not control panel
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
Is it coming from down by the bake element? Is it an arching or sparking type of noise?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess arching but sounds just like a popcorn popper
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Any advice?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
Does it happen when the bake or broil element are in use or does it happen as soon as power is applied? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
As soon as power is applied
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
It sounds like the bake or broil element is shorted. Usually when one of the elements break it will make this kinda of noise. You can usually even see the sparking through the window. Look around the bake and broil element with the power off for a burn mark on or around the element.
