Refrigeration Noise - Gurgling

Gurgling Noise

Cooling Cycle

  • A gurgling sound may be heard as the refrigerator shuts off after a cooling cycle due to the refrigerant flowing through the tubes in the cooling system.
  • A gurgling sound may also be heard when the doors are open and/or closed. This is part of the cooling cycle.
  • Both are part of normal operation.

 

Opening the Doors

  • A gurgling sound may be heard when opening and closing the doors due to water equalizing in the drain tube as air is forced through the tube.
  • This is part of normal operation.
  • This is more common during time of high humidity.
