Gas Range Popping or Banging Noise


  • Why is there a popping or banging noise during the oven preheat or cooldown?
  • Is it normal for the oven to pop or bang?
  • Why does the oven make a thumping noise?
  • Can anything be done to stop the metal expansion noise when the unit does not have a self-clean mode?


  1. A popping or banging noise is normal with new oven cavity expansion and contraction.
  2. Run the unit for three hours on Bake mode at 500°F to help reduce noise.
  3. Some noise may still be noticeable.
  4. For surface burners, refer to Gas Surface Burner Clicking.


If the popping gets worse or does not dissipate over time, service is necessary to expertly diagnose and repair the product. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
