I'm no electrician, Kurt, but out of respect for the potential, I take electrical matters seriously. I'd ask the LL to address it with some urgency. In the meantime, if the outlet has a GFCI button, you could push that and see if the sound still happens. That would help you know if the outlet needs replaced. Otherwise it could be a short, which can be serious.

Did you find out what was going on?
