Since its operation changed, at least talk with AV's tech person, and describe the before and after as best you can.

They might WANT to send you a swap-out unit, just to learn what happened to yours.

Ok ... that does sound like the contactor humming. A longer video/audio version would help (30-60 seconds) to see if it varies. I would not call this critical at the moment, but it should not be doing this on such a new unit. Swap out is recommended soon. And Gary is right ... AV should be interested in analyzing this issue.

Gudy,

Any noise from the Leaf itself when charging from either L1/L2?

i think its nothing, but if it bothers you, push the issue.

personally i think its your hearing that has been "re-tuned" to your new quieter environment and sounds previously drowned out by the valve clatter of your "smoker" are now being noticed

PDXLeafguy,
I can hear a fan running near the front of the LEAF when charging. I haven't paid close enough attention to see if it is a different speed for L1 vs. L2...

Gudy, If you have an SPL meter checkout the level at 1 meter. That may be listed somewhere in the specs.

2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017

Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?
