Quiet under counter beverage refrigerator center

Posted by HomeCookAustin (My Page) on

For my remodel I picked up a used GE profile stainless beverage center with a glass door.

The problem is this thing is loud. Not loud because it is broken, just loud enough that it is very present when the home is otherwise quiet. Much louder than a my full size LG refrigerator.

Is there something I can replace it with that is actually really quiet? Otherwise I think its going to get replaced with a set of drawers....

I don't want to spend as much as a good full size fridge either.... not worth it to me. By that I mean > $1k.

There is nothing significantly less noisy for under $1k.

Built-in quiet beverage centers start at Liebherr for ~$1500

The rest are above $2k.

Or Perlick factory seconds.

These are not used but scratch'n dent models sometimes can be found for a bit under $1500.

We love our Electrolux Beverage Center - very quiet, nice temperature controls (you pick the exact temp,) Luxury-Glide shelves and LED lighting

It's not under $1K but I you can sometimes get it at Sears Outlet - or maybe even if you have coupons online for less. It's Labor Day weekend too - perhaps some of the big box stores have sales.

Good luck!

I would avoid getting Danby.

We got one in Dec and it started making this really loud noise when the compressor turned off. The service guy/warranty center basically said to replace it (vs fix it).

The store was wiling to let me pick a different one (pay more if needed), but I couldn't find one that had as much room for the cost, so I gave it another try. Well, this one makes a similar noise, although not quite as long.... at this point, I've decided to just keep it, but may have service come out again.

Electrolux was one of my other options.....
