So my microwave makes a click noise (kinda like a Geiger counter) when plugged in but not running. It sounds evil.

So the only answer I have is to unplug the thing where the clicks slow down and finally stop. Here
is a link to a YouTube of the same microwave with the same problem. (Not mine though). Emerson won't help and it's rare and hard to google. My biggest concern is fire risk and being awoken at night by the creep noise when it decides to be active. I'd rather not buy a new microwave. So suggestions on cause and or level of harmlessness would be appreciated. Oh and if something is trying to communicate with me I'll gladly perform an exorcism because this is seriously creepy.
