I bought a new fridge. It made a lot of noise. I returned the fridge to the store and got a new fridge, different model. It still makes a lot of noise. The salesman said my floor may be too thin. It may need to be reinforced.
I thought I could get a piece of 36" by 36" panelling, 1" thick and screw it to the floor and then place the fridge on top. Would this work? Does anyone know what I could do otherwise?
Thanks

Personally I'd first check the existing floor for damage (water/rot), and check to see if the fridge is level, if it's not level you can adjust the legs to level it up. Good luck!

Leveling can cause problems. Instead of paneling, try to place some strips of thick carpeting or rubber cushions under the two back wheels and the front legs. This will absorb the sound much better than the paneling. Do NOT place carpet under the whole refrigerator or it will cause more problems down the road.Let us know if the problem still exists.
