I have a Maytag gas range that is probably right around a year old.
I'm noticing lately that will occasionally make a snapping noise when
I'm cooking something. The sounds is a lot like what you get if you
put a piece of paper on a desk and snap it with a rubber band. There
doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it- it will do it after 1
minute of cooking or 20 minutes of cooking. I'm not sure if it's
isolated to one burner or not.
It's not an errant ignitor- I sat and watched all the burners I was
using tonight to see if I could see something when it made the noise.
It snapped a couple of times over a few minutes, but I couldn't see any
change in any flame patterns or colors or anything.
Would/could this just be something that gas stoves do? Air in the
line? I recently also mentioned a water heater pilot light that keeps
going out (I can't figure out how to get to the thermocouple, and the
pro is booked up). Perhaps related?
Anyone know if this is something or nothing to be concerned about?
Thanks for any help. "gas stove makes snapping noise" is a horrible
thing to try to google.
