Hi

 

Were abouts does the noise seem to come from?

In the fridge, in the freezer or at the back?

 

And how long does it make the noise for when it starts making it?

Hi

 

Ok if you pull the appliance out and look at the back you will see a metal panel at the bottom.

 

Remove the panel and there you will see the compressor and next to that is the condenser fan.

Carefully leave it running and try and see which one of them is making the noise and let me know.

Hi Alan

Ok worries I take it that's a all in price which is quite good.

So fingers crossed they will replace the fan at the back and it will be back to normal.

If you need any more info just get back to me.
