hi-pitch ringing tone


How old is the house and have you had any remodeling done on that wall lately. I would hate to think something was left in the wall.

no remodeling where the sound is coming from. some plumbing work in the bathroom on the opposite side of the room only, but nothing where the sound is coming from.
wonder if old telephone wire in wall -- they draw electic seperately yes? but why does sound go away for days and then come back?
odd?

Any plumbing in the wall. Could it be water dripping in a drain from a leaking toilet or faucet? Water dripping in a downspout from the gutter?
Is it windy when the noise is present? Electric wires swaying and the noise is transmitted to the side of the house. Wind turbine in attic? Stove or bathroom exhaust fan being spun by wind?

it definitly sounds electric or metal (like a tuning fork); no wind or water or gutter or wires near by; happens when things are all normal and quiet, which is why so frustrating and hard to pinpoint.

Use a shot glass(have one first) as a stethoscope to try to pinpoint the exact spot. Then use a hammer to do further investigation. That would have driven Me nuts long ago. Good Luck

How about a far off RR crossing signal. Can you hear it anytime,or just at night when it is quiet

Only happens in one wall cavity or along the whole wall? Only at night?
You check for any hole outside where a critter could get in?

Maybe something land-line telephone related. That's the only thing that I can think of that would still have power even if you disconnect power.

One thing you did not cover, any IT equipement/wiring in the house. Could there be any IT wiring within this wall? Telephone cable, cable TV wiring, any type of wiring? You eliminated the AC electrical, the water, the water/lawn sprinkler system, so how about any IT wiring? Good Luck and keep us posted.

not a critter - sounds to "man made" -- to consistent, perferct repetition when it is happening
