Understanding
the sounds you may hear
Your new refrigerator may make different
sounds than your previous one. Hard surfaces
such as the ceiling, walls and cabinets
around the refrigerator can make these
sounds seem louder.
The following chart describes the kinds of
sounds that might be new to you and what
causes them.
SOUNDS/OBSERVATIONS
CAUSES
Hum or hlss
The refrigerator's fan motor and movlng alr.
Clicking or snapping sounds
The thermostat makes a definite click when the
refrigerator stops running. It also makes a sound
when the refrigerator starts.The defrost timer will click
when the defrost cycle startsand stops.
Runnlng sounds
The hlgh-efflclency compressorand motor willrun
longer than older designs.
Trlckllngwater/water sounds
During the defrost cycle, the refrigerator willnot be
running. The trickling water is the frost accumulation
on the freezer coil melting and running into the
defrost pan. When the refrigerator stops running, you
may hear gurgling in the tubing for a few minutes.
