Refrigerator Noise? Or Lack Thereof?  
Um, is it normal for refrigerators to not make the hum hum noise that I usually hear when they're running? I never pay much attention to it, but when I was fishing around the freezer just now to see what veggie I wanted to cook with supper, the noise snapped off. It's been quiet since. I was banging around quite a bit up there because everything kept flying out at me, but nothing that would break anything. i was just moving stuff around and putting it back like I normally do.

Now the entire fridge is very very quiet and I don't know if it's supposed to stop like this once in a while and I never noticed before, or if something is off.

ETA: Nevermind! The hum-hum's back!

Yeah, it's supposed to turn off and on like that.

Mind you for my fridge, it's less a hum than more a rattle zoom bang bang, but...it keeps things cold.

I know that the compressor on ours cycles off and on every now and then, when it hits the temp it's programmed to keep the food at.

The only time I ever noticed it doing it, though, is if the compressor got really dirty (sucked up too much dog and cat hair and dusty bunnies) and the noise got louder than normal.

I think I was like... 30 or something the first time I realized that the fridge isn't running all the time.

Yeah, it's random when it makes noise. I hate that too. Just make sure that the doors are closed.
