Hi Guys,
I just bought a Hotpoint Fridge Freezer it works well but is really noisey at times with cracking & popping sounds, I understand this is quite a common problem but does anyone know how to cure it ?

It's the refrigerant boiling off in the evaporator.
Apart from putting it in a separate room or garage it's a no. it's the way of refrigerant and systems currently used in domestics, on the plus side it is allegedly better for the environment.

fill it full of beer as it will hold temp better, so run less often:p
