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 didn't know Beko made existential fridges. grin

It is sighing because it has 'FFS'! Fridge futility syndrome sad

this thread has not only reassured me about my weird fridge noises but relieved me of my expensive fridge aspirations. I'm a winner all round. grin

And the WORST customer service in the whole world . FACT!

pofacedplot Tue 05-Mar-13 14:17:30

do they really? <disillusioned>

valiumredhead Tue 05-Mar-13 14:16:15

That's because all SMEG appliances break after 6 months so they don't make noises as they don't work! grin

pofacedplot Tue 05-Mar-13 14:03:52

Have you noticed this doesn't seem to happen with SMEG fridges at all? <counts pathetic savings>

Stanley - things do leap out of my fridge all the time, but dh says it is because I do not pack it in an orderly enough fashion. hmm

My fridge is a Beko, it talks to itself. No idea what it's saying but its very noisy.

StanleyLambchop Tue 05-Mar-13 09:23:25

My fridge makes funny snoring noises too. It also chucks food out at me when I open it! I swear, it lobbed out some tomatoes which were right at the back, so it was not a case of them being on the edge of the shelf and just falling out! My husband has had a bottle of milk thrown out too. Damn thing iss possessed. Does anyone know how you get a fridge exorcised???

valiumredhead Tue 05-Mar-13 08:36:28

Our fridge makes that rasping noise too!

RobotHamster Tue 05-Mar-13 08:33:14

My Samsung one farts at me. Its the washing machine that's haunted.

It usually means that it is over working, may need defrosting. If it is free standing pull a little further away from the wall to allow the air to circulate.
If there is a drainage hole inside make sure it is not blocked.

I have a Zanussi, Fridge/Freezer, Dishwasher and washing machine, they all make bizarre noises.

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 23:18:47

Bekos are bovine and Zanussis are feline grin

robotpenguin Mon 04-Mar-13 23:16:16

My DM has a Zanussi fridge that meows - well, a yeeeaaaaoooowwww type noise every 30 seconds or so.... one of her cats sits and talks to it ...

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 23:08:33

The mooing Bekos. Who'd have thought? We have to record a moo-loop sequence I think.

lalabaloo Mon 04-Mar-13 23:06:52

pofacedplot Mon 04-Mar-13 19:57:06

I think a portal to another dimension is definitely the most logical solution. But with a Beko fridge the other dimension would be a touch tawdry I imagine. biscuit

OzmaofOz Mon 04-Mar-13 19:08:21

Ours is a Hotpoint, it doesn't sigh everyday - I don't think, but on a regular basis.
Yes a portal sounds credible, I wonder if we could go through to the other side .....?

mylot Mon 04-Mar-13 18:54:23

Mine is. Could even be a portal. I have screaming children in my fridge. I'm pretty sure it's not my own in other parts of the house...

BMW6 Mon 04-Mar-13 18:47:58

My Indesit fridge has made weird noises from day one.........kind of moaning sound decreasing in pitch till it falls silent again grin

LangenFlugelHappleHoff Mon 04-Mar-13 18:44:09

Langen, you are scaring me. And please refrain from stealing my socks, BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MANY ODD ONES ALREADY

Puts marvellous stolen sock collection back in it's box...
