I just purchased a brand new fridge from Lowe's, and it is sooo much noisier than my old fridge (10 yr old GE). It is an energy-star. Our old one was not.
The really irritating part is there's a VERY high pitched noise that comes from it when it runs. There seem to be 3 noises - the low hum of the motor, a kind of "tinny/metallic" constant strumming type noise I associate with the condenser, and the very high pitched noise. All three are constant when the fridge runs. IT seems too, that most of this noise is coming out the bottom where the front vent is, but some may be coming around the sides.
Does anyone know what this very high pitched noise is associated with? We've had it a little over 30 days at this point, and I'm about ready to get rid of it, but we just spent a good amount of money for this one.
I'm not sure what to do. It operates fine and is cold. I called the warranty dept and they said they make more noise - and it sounded "normal" based upon what I was describing.
