Brand new KitchenAid fridge replacement? GE vs LG
I need some opinions and thoughts on the predicament I am in, I purchased a brand new KitchenAid 30" french door (KRFF300ESS) fridge and it arrived last Friday, ever since when the compressor fires up it emits a high pitch whine around the 10k Hertz frequency sound. This is causing headaches to me and my fiancee.
We've had a KA repair tech out to assess the noise and of course he found nothing wrong with it and said the sounds are normal operation sounds. Although, he did admit the high pitch noise was loud. His report back to KA head office was the fridge is fine so they won't do anything for us.
The store (not Home Depot) we purchased this fridge (and a stove/microwave/dishwasher) from is graciously allowing an exchange which brings me to my question.
I am looking for a 30" left swing (or reversible) single door freezer on the bottom or a 30" french door fridge that are silent as can be to replace this KitchenAid. Based on my assumption that parts are used between Whirlpool corporation companies we would like to try a different brand other then Whirlpool/KitchenAid/Amana/Maytag.
Does anyone have recommendations for non-whirlpool, I was thinking of these two:
