What is a good noise level for a fridge freezer?

Zoe Bryant   |   Member since 2007  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

The normal noise range for modern fridge freezers is 32 to 47 dB. Anything quieter than 40 dB is considered a quiet model, as this is the noise level of a library. Occasionally, the stated sound level may be higher or lower than the reality.

Considering this, why does my fridge freezer make a noise?

Loud noises coming from the back of your refrigerator could indicate an issue with the defrost timer, condenser fan, or the compressor. You can make certain this is the problem by pushing in the light switch in the freezer ; if the circulation fan is the culprit, the noise will get louder.
