    soo i picked up a pretty standard GE minifridge about a month ago. it works in the sense of keeping things cold...the issue is when the AC compressor turns off and on it makes a pretty annoying "pop" type of noise. recently moved into an apt with a lofted bedroom. trying to fall asleep with this thing downstairs is a chore. just as i start to dose off the stupid thing turnes off..or on.

    i checked to make sure the compressor base was secure and it is. was told by a friend i may just be able to replace the switch?

    any ideas?

    Is this one of those mini coolers that hold six cans or an actual fridge. I used to have a cooler which was impossible to sleep with, but I got a proper fridge which is much quieter.

    I have had some of those, Your unit may just be defective, Go buy the same model again, keep the ackaging and return your old one in the new packaging with the new receipt. Or just go exchange it if you still have the box, receipt etc. If it still doesnt work buy a different one dude.

    That's gotta be labeled as another one of those you get what you pay for~ At least there's not too much harm you going in and tweaking with it's insides =D
