POSSIBLE CAUSES
The compressor in your new refrigerator regulates
temperature more efficiently while using less energy, and
operates quietly. Due to the reduction in operating noise you
may notice more intermittent noises.
High efficiency compressor and fans
Fans/compressor adjusting to optimize performance during
normal compressor operation
Contraction/expansion of inside walls, especially during initial
cool-down
Flow of refrigerant, or flow of oil in the compressor
The refrigerator may not be steady
Movement of the water lines against the refrigerator cabinet,
or of items placed on top of the refrigerator cabinet
Water dripping on the heater during defrost cycle
May be heard when ice melts during the defrost cycle and
water runs into the drain pan
Heard when the water valve opens to fill the ice maker
