Probably the fans in the back. Doin' what they are supposed to do. When running I can hear them as soon as I step out the door and when it's very quite inside I can hear them then, but much more subdued.

I have the same refrig in our 378. I notice the fan too, but only when it is pretty hot out. It seems to only kick in when the unit is working hard

They replaced our fridge because the freezer door did not seal and could not be adjusted.
That one and the new on are both very noisy.

Our 360 had the noisy fans so I went to a computer supply house and bought 2 fans for ten bucks each and replaced them. They are easily accessible from the tot vent outside. That was a year ago and everything now is quiet . Fridge works great.

I assume the fans are 12 volt?

I have a 360 also and would love to change those fans. What is the "tot vent"? Is it the one on the side or the top?

Thanks

Sorry. That was a spelling error. It is the top vent. You will have to cut the plugs from the fans and solder them to the new ones. It is all 12 v so connections are easy.
