    Default loud thump in stove

    What needs to be done to stop this stove from flexing and making the loud thumping noise when the oven is heated? I can't remember ever having this problem.
    According to an oven thermometer, it is not overheating.

    Cold shop? Doubt it.

    Metal flexing or oil canning. Need to figure out if the back, bottom side ( bottom is most common, back and then sides in that order ). We use to drill a hole in the metal between the liner and outer shell, make a loop with a straight piece (P) and push the straight piece through the hole to hold the liner in place and put a screw on the loop to keep in in place.

    metal between the liner and outer shell
    There 3 layers of metal?

    How do you go about figuring which part is flexing?

    Can'y quite picture what you are saying.

    Do you mean drill a hole in the bottom outer panel of the oven then put something stiff through the hole and against the inner liner then screw the looped part to the outer panel to hold it in place? I'm thinking the loop is bent at 90 degerees so it can be attached to the bottom?

    Thanks.

    What is "oil canning"?

    Most have one and then the liner.

    Turn the oven on, watch/inspect/listen....can usually see it move/flex.

    The bottom/sound of the old oil can when pushed against...

    I just looked oil canning up. I thought you were referring to something different than the sound made with the metal flexing.

    I think maybe I can get something to hold the panel in place to solve this problem. I do suspect it in the bottom or the back.

    Update:

    May have found the problem. The bottom outer panel felt like it had some play in it. I removed the drawer and tilted the stove back so I could see the bottom panel. It had a bent place in it basically giving that area a concave shape. I removed two screws at the front of the panel and dropped it enough to get my hand between the inner and outer panels. I pushed the outer panel back out as close to its original shape as I could by hand. Replaced the screws and let her heat up. So far, so good.

    Update:

    Had to take another shot at it. Drilled a hole through the bottom outer panel and ran a stiff piece throught the insulation to the inner panel and screwed it off at the outer panel. It did quieten it a little, so I was close to where I needed to be I think. It looked like someone else had the same problem, because there were a few other holes drilled in the bottom like some was going to do the same thing. Maybe they did and it didn't quite work.

    Guy that bought said he was not worried about it. He didn't use the oven much anyway.
