You use a mongoose to swallow the snake that swallowed the frog and I still don't know why it swallowed the frog, what a hog!

I know you would like to get a good answer to your problem. I would suggest googling the question on the internet.

Bug bomb might work, but that would kill the frog in place, not to mention the residue. Or, a CO2 fire extinguisher and give a few blasts under and to the sides of the fridge. Frozen frogs are so much easier to catch and no residue

Get a really big and loud Daddy frog and let him yell RIB-IT. Should scare the little guy out and the big frog will be large enough to find and catch. Then you will have frog legs for dinner...yummy.

Really, I still got nothing. You might try a service shop?

The only thing I ever had that might even come close was a nest of wasps, which Camping World removed for me....

FYI, didn't know it was a wasps nest at the time, just that the AC didn't work and made a weird noise, the service tech found it (them) when he removed the cover...

No frogs No snakes. Since you didnt indicate what kind of refer you have installed. If it is a lager say side by side or even a top freezer, This may be a normal noise.

The newer refers (manufactured after 1994) use R134 freon instead of the older R12.

Being a certified refer repairman I have had my sharre of trying to explain the weird noises coming from a brand new refer....

The manufactures normally use about 4 -5 oz of R134 (R12 was about 8 - 10oz) and what will happen is depending on the temp, if you will get air bubbles in the liquid condenser lines when the compressor starts up. When these air bubbles reach the evap it will make noises like, chirping, crickets, cat moaning, popping, croaking, knocking and screeching noises. Once the pressure builds up in the condenser (usually about 2 - 3 min) this noise will stop.

I cant see why and senseable frog would every want to live under a refer.

Hope this helps...

Unless it's an Ohio Wood Frog. They can withstand being frozen and then defrost and continue on. I've got a Prof. friend doing research on the critter, they're hoping it will lead to preserving human organs.

If the croaking sound is from the fridge,the only moving part would be the gas valve opening. (Assuming it's an RV fridge)

Make the frog your mascot and put him to work. I bet he would not mine emptying your tanks. Maybe he can drive?
