may
make
sounds
that your old one didn't.

the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned
about them.
Don't be. Most of the new sounds are normal.
Hard surfaces
like the floor,
walls and cabinets
can make the sounds seem louder,

the kinds of sounds that might be new to
you, and what may be making

fan motor and moving

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
starts and stops.
When the refrigerator
stops running, you may hear gurgling
in the tubing
for a few minutes after it stops. You may also hear defrost water running
into the defrost water pan.
If your refrigerator
has an ice maker you may hear buzzing
(from the
water valve), trickling
water and the clatter of ice dumped
into the bin.
Your refrigerator
has a high-efficiency
compressor
and motor. It will run
longer than older designs. It may even seem to run most of the time.
