To think my fridge is haunted?

It could be the cupboard next to the fridge. Now and then, there is a strange intermittent sound of snoring, or rasping breath, basically like someone snoring really loudly, coming from the wall behind the cupboard. It is not scary, more comical. It can happen day or night. The room next door is our sitting room, and no, it is not dh asleep. No one else has ever heard it. I need to get dh to come and stand there, for hours, until it happens again. Opinions please on what it could be.

I've no idea, but at first I read that as "To think my FRINGE is haunted." I think that would be much more problematic! grin

Could it be your fridge making noises? Mine sounds like it's about to blow up sometimes, it's very odd.

My fringe is DEFINITELY haunted. It keeps playing tricks on me and falling into my eyes. I wonder if I need an spiritual haircut cleanse.

If it is the fridge then I am really worried, as dh will refuse to buy a new one until it does actually blow up. I'd rather it were a ghost. However it seems to be coming from the cupboard beside it, or the wall behind the cupboard. Gulp.

Could it be rats or mice scrabbling in the wall behind the cupboard?

If so then be careful the little buggers chew through cables and electrocute themselves and could even kill the fridge. And dead fridges are useless.

AAARgh! Not rats! But do they wheeze and snore with human style volume? Human sized rats that snore?

<runs screaming from house>

How would I find them? But it really doesn't sound like rats. I grew up in an old vicarage with rats under the floorboards [nice], so have experience.

I doult that your fridge is haunted: that yoghurt that you pushed to the back has evolved in higher life form and is preparating to take over the planet!

Or worse still some kids lunch box got put in the cupboard without being emptied and now has six month old sandwiches in.

Your fridge is not haunted it is sleeping, that's what all the snoring is about.
My fridge doesn't snore, it sighs and occasionally groans.

But dh does a regular completely obsessive clear out weekly RT - I need to record it on my phone don't I. It really does sound like an 80 year old lady snoring in front of the TV.

I think you need a new fridge. Don't wait for it to blow up (do fridges blow up??) - ignore your DP & buy one yourself.

Your fridge sighs Oz? Is it really the fridge then?

Latara Mon 04-Mar-13 14:20:21

Fridges do make weird noises especially when they are working hard to keep your food cold. Maybe it needs defrosting?

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:20:36

That is a whole new thread Latara, buying a fridge without dh's agreement. Too many outgoings at present.

Is it the fridge from Ghostbusters? "Zoooooool."

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:20:54

Defrosting. Does not compute.

OzmaofOz Mon 04-Mar-13 14:21:52

Yes, at first I thought it was next door having loud sex, but realised it is the fridge.
It is odd because it does sound very human, but is definitely the fridge.

I am looking out for the giant marshmallow man JB.

Defrosting = get any ice off the freezer box / clean the fridge of any ice or frost.

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:22:54

Oz! Really? I feel some sort of spiritual connection to you stemming from our shared experience of weird human sounding fridge noises. Thankyou for that.

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:23:37

do i have to take everything out of the freezer latara? won't it all melt? <pathetic>

OzmaofOz Mon 04-Mar-13 14:24:13

grin your welcome. << hands po a friendship bracelet >>

My fridge makes a bizarre sound that sounds like its dropped something, weird things fridges are.

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:26:45

Thanks Oz. I will take if off in the bath. :D

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 14:27:14

Argh I get confused between grins here and on FB.

I think we should all record our fridge noises and make a fridge noise compendium. For the good of all woman and mankind.
