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.
