Sometimes thes fridges can make noises like this as its the refrigerant being pump round the system so it can make that kind of noise.

But if it starts to make a noie like running water or driping water from it then theres an issue with it. But you find when this happens you notice the cooling has gone off and the fridge side goes warm.

So as the appliance is still cooling as it should then the gurgling noise will just be normal system noise and should be fine.

Not normally. What you can try is look at the back and to the side of the compressor is the copper dryer. It has a thicker pipe one end and a thin capilery the other.

Bend this so its horizontal as this can sometimes quiten it down.

But if that doesnt do much then im afraid thats how it is.
