Popping or Cracking Noise
- Contraction and expansion of the inside walls of the refrigerator may cause a popping or cracking noise, especially as the refrigerator cools down for the first time or defrosts.
- This sound can also be heard when the ice is being ejected from the Ice Maker. The ice falling into an empty bucket can make a loud banging noise.
- Both are part of regular operations.
Is the refrigerator level?
It is important to ensure the refrigerator is level. A properly leveled refrigerator will help with the overall proper operation of the refrigerator. Check to make sure the floor under the refrigerator is level. If the floor is not level shims may need to be used to properly level the refrigerator. Please refer to your Owner's Manual or Installation Instructions for specific leveling information for your refrigerator.
