Where is the noise coming from?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
it seems like it is from inside the oven. it gets louder when i open the door.
Expert:  ApplianceTech replied 5 years ago.
This oven that will likely have to be removed from the cabinet. It will take two men to gain access to the back of the oven. If the sound is too loud, then you will need to cut the power at the breaker box. This may require a service tech as the oven is too big for one person to handle on a repair.

But is this a dangerous condition that I need to address right away/urgently?
Expert:  ApplianceTech replied 5 years ago.
I would turn off the power until you know what is causing the noise. Especially if it just suddenly started do this. Just go to the breaker box and look for a double breaker. You may have two if you have a cooktop. Trip it off until you get a tech to check it out.
