BlueStar - Loud boom noise after turning off gas oven

Posted by khallock (My Page) on

I have a 36" Bluestar RNB and I've noticed that after turning off the oven, about 10-15 minutes later I will hear a loud "BOOM" noise. The oven is completely off (and has been for several minutes) when this happens.

The oven was installed in August 2013. But I cant say I remember the noise happening since then. I can definitely say its happened for the past 8 weeks for certain. But I do not use the oven daily. I probably only use it 2x a week or so on average.

Any ideas?

I did google the problem (not specific with Bluestar) and it does sound like a metal panel or something making the sound. I do not smell gas or anything like that.

I get that big boom in my gas fireplace. It happens when it's turned on and off due to metal expanding and contracting. It's been going on for years and it still scares the bejesus outta me every time. But don't take my word for it...I'd call Bluestar to be first!

My BS makes a very loud boom as well. I don't time it, but it is well after I shut it off, and I assume it has to do with expansion and contraction of metal. I don't always get it, but it is common if I am cooking at a high temp.

Thanks! I haven't called Bluestar yet. But i do think its like metal flexing. It hasn't happened the last few times I have used the oven. I've been trying to make a point to listen for it.

My wolf dual fuel range does the same thing.

Loud noise after the oven has been off for a time. It freaked me out at first (house is 8 yrsold), but I have come to expect it.

This is the first time I have seen any reference to anything similar by another poster.
