Quiet Refrigerator!

Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good quiet refrigerator (North America). We just moved into a new place and every 45 mins the refrigerator starts its compression cycle and gets up to 50 dbA for 15 mins. It's intolerable. Any models that run under 40dbA? I'd much prefer a constant lower hum than this.
Thanks!

The Kitchen Aid one in our kitchen is pretty quiet. I can't say the same for the different brand one out in the garage.

It's a model that is around six years old and it looks like stores don't sell them anymore :

French doors with the freezer on the bottom. This might be the closest one without the icemaker :

Shop KitchenAid 20-cu ft Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator with Ice Maker (Stainless steel) ENERGY STAR at Lowes.com

Mine isn't stainless steel, so that could probably bring the price down a little bit.

I highly recommend the Kenmore brand.

I have a Kenmore Elite and it's super quiet.

The problem is any fridge can start out quiet...but with wear noise levels can increase.

Bro it's 2018.. you're gonna have to get a fridge that costs $9000 and streams all your favorite shows if you want it to keep your food cool without making too much noise.

Oh and you're gonna have to replace that in 2 years with a newer model or they'll lower the speed on it.

No-one wants a fridge with low bandwidth

The only loud noise coming out from my fridge are the noisy ice cubes.
