I have a Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator (built by Amana-Maytag).
Overall the compressor is quiet, compared to older units. But when the
compressor first comes on, perhaps 30 seconds or so later, I hear some
popping noises that go away about 10 to 15 seconds later. This is loud
enough to be heard in the next room; it sounds like someone playing the
drums in there. I am told by Sears that this is normal, the Freon expanding
or some such thing. But it is bothersome enough that I am considering buying
another type of refrigerator. Is this sort of thing common with all new
refrigerators? Even top freezer models? Thanks.
