Do you hear abnormal sounds from the refrigerator?

Before calling for service, review the checkpoints below. Any service calls related to normal sounds will be charged to the user.

These sounds are normal.

  • When starting or ending an operation, the refrigerator may make sounds similar to a car engine igniting. As the operation stabilizes, the sounds will decrease.

  • While the fan is operating, these sounds may occur. When the refrigerator reaches the set temperature, no fan sound will occur.

  • During a defrost cycle, water may drip on the defrost heater, causing sizzling sounds

  • As the refrigerator cools or freezes, refrigerant gas moves through sealed pipes, causing bubbling sounds.

  • As the refrigerator temperature increases or decreases, plastic parts contract and expand, creating knocking noises. These noises occur during the defrosting cycle or when electronic parts are working.

  • For ice maker models: When the water valve opens to fill the ice maker, buzzing sounds may occur.
  • Due to pressure equalizing when opening and closing the refrigerator door, whooshing sounds may occur.
