My refrigerator has a vibration noise
Level your refrigerator doors to reduce vibration. (Jupiterimages/Creatas/Getty Images)

Your refrigerator might vibrate for a few reasons. In some instances, the height of the refrigerator door and freezer door do not match up. If the refrigerator door compartment door were higher than the freezer compartment door, you would follow a slightly different process to fix the vibration than you would if the freezer compartment door were higher than the refrigerator compartment door. Refrigerators also vibrate if they are not level on the floor.
