Why does the LG no-frost fridge hum?

We will tell you below why the refrigerator hums and what to do if the refrigerator gurgles or freezer buzzes or the noise comes from the fridge with No Frost, but meanwhile we will give you some useful pieces of advice for those, who have just decided to buy a fridge.


Choosing appliances, pay attention to the information label (as a rule, it is not difficult to notice – it is on the front of the unit). On this label, the manufacturer indicates not only the class of energy consumption, but also the volume of each chamber, and at the bottom of the label are spelled out decibels. If peace of mind in your home is important to you, then compare all the models in front of you and choose the one with the lowest noise level.


Types of Noise in a Refrigerator:

All refrigerator noises are different and our customers complain about a wide variety of noises, we have selected the most common complaints:


And also refrigerator noises can start to appear after some process. Again, let’s turn to our customers and give an example of the most common cases:


– Noisy refrigerator after shipping.

– Noisy refrigerator after defrosting.

– Refrigerator hums after being moved.

– Refrigerator hums after closing/opening the door.

– If you chose a very quiet refrigerator, but this does not prevent it from humming a lot, there are reasons that can not be attributed to the breakdown, and you can solve the problem yourself.


  1. Check for shipping bolts. These items are needed to fix the springs with which the motor is attached. If the bolts were negligently forgotten to remove, the springs will not cushion, and the refrigerator will work very loudly.


  1. If you do not know why you should not turn on your refrigerator immediately after transportation, then give it time – at first let it stand for a while turned off, and after turning it on let it go to the optimal operating mode (sometimes this process takes a week, do not require the unit to work too much and silently in the first hours and days).


  1. Check to see if the equipment is properly installed. Maybe the BHP is in contact with the wall, furniture, or other appliances. To avoid resonance, there should always be a five-inch gap between the refrigerator and other surfaces, furniture, and appliances.


  1. Check that the chambers are properly loaded. If you think, “My refrigerator – is as I want, so I use it,” it does not mean that you can disregard the instructions in the manual. Pots, jars, containers, and other utensils should not stand tightly together in the chambers, which can touch and create a ringing, and sometimes a real rumble.


  1. If your refrigerator roars along with the compressor starting, that’s perfectly normal. The compressor needs a starting current to start the rotor, which is why you hear the short growling sound – it’s absolutely normal.


If you’ve placed your food in the chambers properly, the unit has been serving you for months or years, and it’s never made a noise, we could be talking about the breakdown that the refrigerator is so loud about.
