    Default 56L Snowmaster Rattling

    Good day all,

    I am the proud owner of a new 56L snowmaster fridge freezer.

    Here are some pics:

    It got delivered this week, after a very excited un-boxing experience and running it on AC overnight to test it out. I decided to take it for a test drive on the way to work this morning.
    However I very quickly noticed a very irritating rattling noise when I went over small bumps. One that would drive me absolutely crazy on a dirt road.

    I can tell by the sound of the noise that its got to do with the copper piping / radiator inside the fridge. Its almost like a pipe is hitting one of the fins or something.

    Is this normal, or am I just unlucky that something inside my fridge is 5mm to close to something else?

    To have to return it for this is just going to be a night mare. What are the chances I can just open it up and bend whatever is rattling by 3mm?

    "Returning" it should not be a nightmare. Just take it to the supplier in Isando (Quite close to you) and have them check it out. Open on Saturdays as well.
    Bought the same one on Black Friday at a massive discount - works superbly.

    No sorry, got the 65l low profile one (same difference :-) ). Only fridge low enough to fit underneath the tonneau cover of the Amarok.

    Was there something inside the fridge? Otherwise the loose baskets tend to rattle.

    There was 1 coke, so you have a valid point here. I think there could be rattle coming from the baskets. But this particular sound was definitely there in the compressor compartment.

    Also remember that the compressor is mounted on rubber feet to allow for some movement. This movement will make some noise when jolted (bad road etc) is it not maybe that that you are hearing?

    My fridge also makes a noise also must be the compressor. I asked them to look at it by snowmaster, it's better but still makes a noise sometimes
