Please could you describe the noise you're hearing.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Hello Tim
It is a kind of metallic, irritating constant "keeeeeeettttttttt" kind of noise.

That's a good description, but I honestly don't know why it's making that noise.

The main problem with the Duoheat product is that it's not made anymore, and some of the spares are not available.

If you remove the cover (with the power off) to investigate you should be able to track down the component that's making the noise.
