    If it’s ticking... Cut the red wire.

    That always works for MacGyver. ;)

    Knuckle is correct... It’s a 16V transformer for a doorbell.

    Kind of a neat idea to put it where it's handy. Mine is up in the attic back in the corner. I avoid that attic at all costs, hate fiberglass.

    I heard if you put your tongue across the two terminals and hit the doorbell button it cures Corona visrus.
