Question

Clicking sound under kitchen sink


For 4 days now there is a clicking sound under my kitchen sink. It sounds like it's coming from the garbage disposal. I disconnected the plug but the noise continued. It literally goes "click,click,click" non stop.

I have a Everpure water cartidge right next to the garbage disposal but there are no moving parts in it that could account for the clicking

What could be causing the sound?

Plastic piping will cause this sound due to expansion and contraction. Look for plastic as drain pipes or water supply pipes. It may be rubbing against the holes in the cabinet or other pipes.

Thanks Handyman78 but there are no plastic pipes of any kind just copper tubing for the water filter and metal pipes for the garbage disposal.
Any other ideas please?

Metal pipes can also do this but to a lesser degree. Your water filter is likely made of plastic and can have expansion issues. More info- does it happen when the water is run? Hot, cold or both? You said you unplugged the disposer which rules that out from an electrical point of view.

Have you ruled out a mouse for instance?
