Sounds like a jet taking off
on October 15, 2014
I must agree with some of the other reviews. The noise this thing cranks out is a major distraction, and no, it isn't in my bedroom. The unit is installed under my kitchen counters, and I can hear it in my living room as I'm typing this review.
The fridge exists in three states: A constant low hum, audible in the kitchen but not adjacent rooms. A whine type sound that sounds like a small toy car winding up, this noise can be heard from adjacent rooms and our bedroom upstairs. This whining is the killer as it spins up every 1-2 minutes. Third noise is the classic sound of the compressor kicking in. That is less frequent, but expected. It is still a much louder compressor than my full size GE refrigerator, but also much cheaper so can't complain too much about that.
I wish I wouldn't have bought this thing. I can't enjoy a movie or reading a book anywhere in my house without the constant reminder of my wine cooler.
