Default Oster 5.0 CF noise issues

I just got this and plugged it in while I await the kegerator conversion kit. I noticed that while running it is pretty noisy. You can clearly hear the refrigerant running through the lines. Does anyone have this model and could you confirm or deny if you have heard this? I just want to make sure there is nothing wrong with it. The noise is not a deal killer and this is in the basement so it is not an issue unless it is a sign of trouble.

I had no such issues with my Kenmore 4.5cf.

Sometimes mine makes noise. Its not all the time though. Although I have a whirlpool.
