Been here about two years and still haven't figured it out. I can't even tell where it's coming from. It sounds equally from all directions. Logged the times at one point but they were so random I stopped. Probably goes off once a day for about 4-5 seconds, drives me briefly nuts then I move on. But it's really getting to me at this point. I turned off all the breakers except the one to the fridge. Never made time to plan that one. But ring went off while all other breakers were shut off. It's a low ring about similar tone to a telephone, but lighter, lower. Faint. 4 seconds.Maybe it IS the Kenmore fridge?? Not the AC, water heater, security system is unplugged, disconnected, ... Can't imagine what else. I hope it's the Kenmore fridge.

WHAT IS IT??? Thanks

Sounds like a battery powered device in a drawer or packed away somewhere.

Sometimes if there is any manufacturing well out side the perimeter of the home their combined sounds can cause a harmonic that not only makes indistinguishable sounds, but have been known to move things like a ghost ,it's rare but it happens .
Here in the US our electricity is 60 cycle ,the speed at which the AC power is changed from + to - and back per second. This hum driving machinery can have an interesting influence in the atmosphere.
Like a tuning fork or rather several tuning forks put in the right distance from one another, say in a circle the center can hear their sound even though it is not heard any where else.
Like finding/establishing the happy spot your stereo system is tuned to so the music sounds as though it's right in your head, though it is not very loud.
There are sound meters one can get that will help distinguish how strong and even help you hunt for the source/s .
Some time depending on the condition of your hearing, if both ears are equal. You can partially cover both ears like a cup ,open forward and listen and turn to the direction the sound is strongest, and make a map of the house and note the strongest direction the sound is coming from.
Draw an arrow from where you stand, each time to that direction. after a while your map should reveal the source if it is with in the house.

Good suggestion. What is this device you speak of? I wondered if any instruments existed for identifying sources of sounds.

Since the ringing stopped when you shut off the power it is real. See if you can find an old transformer, maybe near the electrical panel. It could be an old door bell somehow ringing intermittently. Take the low voltage wires off of it if you find one and see if that could be it.
