High frequency noise in apartment

Good morning,
Well, not so good, as I should be sleeping, but there is a HIGH FREQUENCY NOISE, which is driving me CRAZY!

I first noticed it, while taking measurements in the empty apartment BEFORE we moved in, but chalked it up to the emptiness and hard surfaces. However, we are approaching four months and it is still present.

Finally, I hired a professional sound technician to come, with highly specialized equipment and he found it to be the food center refrigerator. He said it emitted 5000 Herz. The landlords are kindly willing to purchase a new one, BUT I HAVE MY DOUBTS. Even if I switch off the circuit breaker, the noise does not go away.

No, I do not have tinnitus, though I am worried about the long term effects upon my hearing.

Any suggestions, before we exchange the refrigerator? Thanks for your help.
