When people buy a new refrigerator, they are excited to move it into the home and start filling it with food. However, there are a few things that need to be checked before you plug it in. If the fridge is turned on and making noise but not cooling, the coils may have been dented during shipping or installation which will make the unit overheat and stop working. When you get to your destination, contact the carrier or company that delivered the fridge to arrange for repair. The fridge is making loud noises when it is turned on because the compressor may be running too hard which will cause damage to your unit. Before turning off your unit, make sure that you turn down the temperature setting and try to cool it down by opening a window or door.

1. Check to ensure the new refrigerator is level and stable.

  1. Air it out correctly by opening all doors.
  2. Make sure all cables are installed correctly.

If everything is fine you should let your refrigerator sit for at least 24 hours, after 24 hours have passed you can safely plug it in and wait a few more hours before storing your food inside.
