すっごいレンジの音がしてるが気になる。

What does the second の mean in this sentence?

6

The second の is a nominalizing の.

It turns the phrase 「すっごいレンジの音がしてる」 into a noun so the grammar 「Nが気になる」 can be used to mean "N is on one's mind" or a similar meaning.

Another example of this usage of の is:

ゲームをするが嫌いです。

(I) dislike playing video games.
