    the refrigerant..could possibly be the refrigerant as it exits the capillary...and that is normal in some instances OR..if it has not done it before it could be sounding a bit like a little short of refrigerant which means there is a leak somewhere.
    If it keeps operating okay I would not worry about it but just keep an eye on it.

    My waeco makes a very quiet bubbling type noise but it's working fine.

    It is loud? Is the compressor running more than it should be?

    If you're concerned about it then turn it off for a couple of days. That way the pressures will equalise and if there is a leak on the low side you should lose all the gas. If this is the case then at least you'll know and be able to do something about it as opposed to it giving up half way through a trip. If it still goes ok after a couple of days rest then I'd suggest you have little to worry about.

    Regards,
    Dave.

    Re: Danfoss Bubbling ???

    Thanks all for your replies . This fridge has been going non stop for 18 months apart from the odd defrost and clean out. I have noticed this noice in it for about a week and a half and being the only beer chiller it could be a huge issue . Think i will try and use a camp kitchen fridge and leave it swiched off for a day and sea if it shits or holds gas.
    Thanks Scott

    Its a full time job. All I seem to do is put beer in the fridge or take it out.
    Im a bit worried I don't think the beer is cold enough. Will get it checked out in Mackay.
