I'll sleep well now I know...

Fridge noises.
Quote
Using specialised sensors they found that the noises occur due to the contraction and expansion of the fridge components and panels as they change temperature.

I used my own specialised sensors - ears and eyes - and came to the same conclusion  Cheesy

Ours buzzes and rattles sometimes.. I just give it a mild push to one side and adjust one of the feet  Wink
Who needs a range of specialist sensors and expensive surveys for that?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Mine occasionally lets me know it's there by vibrating a part of itself that normally doesn't vibrate.
I acknowledge it with a quick nudge which usually shuts it up.

Huh
Ours just makes a quiet hum as the compressor operates, and is pretty much silent after that, surprising given it's a Hotpoint-branded Indesit pile of excrement (I say that cos both it and it's matching freezer counterpart need £50 spending on them replacing the door seals which have hardened up, they're not even 10 years old yet!!), I wonder at whose expense these "scientific" tests were done, but, who cares, it's a daily fail story...
