This refrigerator is a little bit louder than our previous 13 year old one. The only time I notice it is at night because the unit is on the wall shared with the bedroom. I don't notice it during the day when other things are going on. We've had it almost 3 weeks and no regrets, definitely a good value for the money and looks great! My only complaint is it's not as fingerprint resistant as I thought it would be.
