Refrigerators typically make some sound while operating. Determining where the sound is coming from is the first step to understanding what the sound is and whether it is unusual. Each Beko fridge comes with operating noise level information to provide an insight into which fridge is best for open plan kitchens and quiet environments. A minimal running noise is completely normal and is an indication that the air circulation is balanced and your fridge is functioning properly. If your fridge is making a disturbing amount of noise and you think it may have a technical problem, please find our contact details by clicking here.

If you are concerned about the noises your fridge is making, it is important to assess the appliance to find out where the problem is occurring.* To help you assess whether you need further support, we have detailed below the unusual noises your fridge may make:
The compressor on your fridge is designed to keep the appliance at the correct temperature. If you notice your fridge is making a 'whirring' noise for extended periods of time, your compressor is simply working harder to keep it at the right temperature. To reduce the amount of time your compressor is active, ensure the ambient temperature is inside the recommended range for your fridge and avoid opening the fridge door frequently or for extended periods of time. Keeping the door closed will allow the temperature to stabilise. Always make sure the rear wall spacers are used that came with your fridge. To install these, please refer to your product manual's installation instructions. If you cannot find it, don't worry you can download your manual by clicking here.
