The only noise I WANT to hear is the FW pump.

If it goes off while I'm in the sack , pulling the CB and fixing the leak in the AM is fine.

We've had Nova-Kool RFS7501 W/faux teak door panels since 2012 and its been running flawlessly 24/7. When I forgot to plug the boat in, the refrigerator turned off so my batteries would not completely drain. Water was contained inside the unit once thawed. As far as noise, I don't hear the unit at all. I've really never thought about it, I'll have to listen for the cycling next time I'm out. We use it DC exclusively, although it does have the AC option.

Finally got the NorCold installed, a straight forward job except for cutting 1/2 inch out of my header opening to allow for the computer that sits on top of the unit. At this point (a few days after install) I have to say I'm fairly satisfied. The danforth compressor is very quiet but I get a gurgling sound in the freezer when the compressor is on that sounds like a coffee pot boiling...haven't called them yet on that. The first unit was damaged and I sent it back, a terrible packing effort on NorColds part, surprised every Click image for larger version

Check the Manual, our recently acquired domestic 2 door fridge/freezer came with a warning to expect odd clicking tapping etc noises.
(That "danforth" compressor could work as an anchor in emergency)

Beautiful install. Are the wood inserts an option or custom??

"I get a gurgling sound in the freezer when the compressor is on that sounds like a coffee pot boiling.."

Tiny refrigeration systems use a "Cap tube" to meter the freon liquid as it squirts into the evaporator plate. Its just a pin hole.

Thats what you hear liquid , evaporating in the unit.

The sound of ice cream being kept cold!!

Enjoy

The old fridge had the teak slats and I was able to salvage them. The new fridge doors are different sizes so I had to get creative.
Thanks
