New Viking fridge making a high-pitched whining noise..
Hello appliance gurus,
Just had my Viking VCBF136LSS freestanding fridge delivered this morning. The model is discontinued, but I was able to contact the distributor and get one with the direction of a kind GW member.
The fridge is beautiful, but oh my goodness, when it's running, it makes a high-pitched noise that's driving me insane! It's quiet enough that less sensitive person might not be bothered by it, but I really am. And my dog won't even come into the kitchen :(
There's a lot of construction in my neighborhood, and when I first heard it, I thought someone in the distance was running a saw. The noise occurs along with the regular mechanical humming that every fridge makes.
The repairman is coming this week, but I'm not confident that he'll be able to diagnose the problem. It's under warranty (being brand new). I'm wondering if Viking will replace the fan, compressor, etc. until the problem is solved.
Any ideas about a diagnosis or potential solution would be appreciated!
