My Refrigerator has a vibration noise

Last Update Date : Oct 16. 2019

* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.

If your fridge seems to be vibrating or making rattling sounds, it could be caused by:


- The location of the fridge

- How the fridge is leveled

- Your fridge coming in contact with another object 

- The contents within your fridge coming in contact each other


These may cause a louder sound than normal. Sound is also produced from the compressor motor when refrigerator is operating.

1 Please make sure that there is enough space around the fridge.

We recommend more than 50mm with side & back side, 25mm with upper side.

2 Also make sure that the fridge is level, if the fridge is level it will reduce noise coming from the compressor.
