We have a 2011 SilverBack 29Re. The refriderator is very nosy. Does anyone else have this problem and have you been able to remedy it?

are you sure it's the fridge and not the converter?
is this your first RV?
don't hear many complaints about fridge noise.

I am with bikendan
could be they have a bunch of stuff running and the fan in the converter is running which might be the noise they hear

I am sure it is the fridge, we sit right beside it and every time it turns on we hear it. My husband removed a fuse and it stopped, the fridge kept running.

There really isn't anything in the fridge that makes noise during operation (except the propane fire when it lights off running on gas). It is a thermal transfer system. No pumps or fans that I am aware of.

There is a power converter usually located under the fridge. It has a cooling fan that runs when 12V dc power is required by the camper. Which fuse is he pulling? Is there a label?

Does this happen with 120AC hookups or when camping on the battery?

our fridge does have a cooling fan built in some place outside the back of the fridge. Maybe that is what you can hear. I know we can hear ours but it is not real noisy. Maybe something wrong with the fan?

Here is the parts list for the most common type of RV Fridge.
Could not find a OEM fan listed. Perhaps you added one?

It makes noise whether on 12 volt or electric. The fuse is on the outside.
