Question about Samsung RS2556 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a 1 year and 4 month old refrigerator that makes alot of noise when the compressor starts or stops. It sounds like something is very loose. It sounds like a vibration type of noise, but extremely loud. I can hear this when I am at the other end of my house. I explained to customer service the problem I was having and was told that I was past the 1 year warranty..any ideas?
It could be 1 or more springs are broken in the compressor

It can also mean that compressor is wearing out and that is the loose rattle you hear when it shuts off.

Re: the problem posted by GUEST on 11/25/2007, I have been having a similar problem with a Jenn-Air French Door model. It would wake me up at night. I found that correct leveling of the refrig made the problem go away. Check you users manual and it should have instructions. I think these appliance guys just toss the stuff in and don't do the proper alignment or leveling. It took me an hour to do and no service call required. Made a huge difference

If you're sure it is a compressor problem it has a five years warranty replacement. Don't let customer service fool you.

If compressor is the problem check your warranty some manufacturers have extended coverage for the compressor & sealed system it's usually 5 years

The compressor and condensor fan all run at the same time. Make sure the fan isn't hitting something or the drip pan isn't rattling, etc. If you are positive the compressor is making the noise check the rubber isolation mounts to see if they are loose or damaged, etc. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/SS10-1.gif
