    Makes loud popping noise every hour, DO NOT BUY
    by: Anonymous

    We bought Whirlpool Gold top/bottom refrigerator model GB2FHDXWS01 few months back and now regret the purchase. After 5 months of working fine it started making loud popping noise lasting for a minute everytime the fan would switch on. We have open kitchen and this noise can be heard down in the bedroom. The customer service states that this noise is "normal" and is described in the manual. If only I knew beforehand, I'd never buy this fridge. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT. Buy german appliances instead - great quality and service.
