Based on the second line of their OP it appears they already did that.

Personally at this point I would probably shut off the breaker to that circuit and call an electrician.

In the interest of getting more information though, does the popping sound correspond to turning anything on or off, or is it at random? Do any lights flash or anything when it pops?
