        A:  You won't even notice. It runs but it's very quite and when the ice dumps it's less noisy than a normal ice maker in your freezer

        A:  Yes, when the fan runs. Mildly disruptive in a small, closed office. Also makes the office warm. Runs for a few minutes a couple of times a day. Always having Ice makes it worth it

        A:  It does make a little noise, basically the sound of the ice being crushed, but overall it is pretty quiet.

          A:  It makes a little noise but not much more than when your refrigerator runs. Maybe a little more. It sounds like an older computer with one of those louder than normal cooling fans in the back. It's 15 feet away from where I watch TV and doesn't affect that experience one bit. And it only makes noise when it's making the ice. When the hopper is full it sits quiet. Hope this helps.

          A:  When full, we move ice to a traditional freezer as we have found if you keep it in the maker too long, while it stays frozen perfectly, it tends to stick together.

              A:  The full hopper will keep ice for 24 hours but it will shrink and crystallize a little bit. The full hopper is easy to remove with ice inside so you could turn the unit off and place it in a freezer if one was nearby.

              A:  The ice will remain in the basket and the unit will quit making ice when the basket is full. Ice does not need to be transferred if the machine is left on. Al
