laminate under refrigerator

I just installed a new laminate floor in our kitchen and we purchased a new refrigerator and installed it as well. There is a loud vibration coming from the floor. Any ideas as to how to fix it? I'm going to make sure the fridge is good and level but I'm almost positive it is...Just looking for suggestions...

sounds like ther is more wieght on three legs of the fridge than the other one. Make sure all 4 legs are in solid contact with floor, and check to see if the water supply line to icemaker is laying on the floor and causing the noise.

This has happened to me once before and believe it or not it was the laminate vibrating on the 1/4 round I installed. The fridge was just heavy enough to drop the floor to where it was vibrating with the fridge motor.
Guess it drove the homeowner insane enough for just one night
