Why my Fridge makes some unusual noises or sounds?
The normal operation of your refrigerator may cause some Unusual sounds or noises.

Some points to check for normal operation and or possible causes:

● Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.

● Check if the back of the refrigerator is too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation. Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 50 mm from the wall.

● Check whether anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator.

● If a “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. It is normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.

● If there is a knocking sound, as if something is hitting somewhere inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity.
