We have an 11 year old fisher-paykel fridge .For past 6 months several times a day it makes a loud knocking noise


If this noise happens when the compressor turns on and shuts off it is called a compressor knock. All the internal workings of the compressor are supported by springs, over time the springs wear out and become weak. When the compressor stops or starts the tourq causes the internal parts to hit aginst the casing of the compressor. Sounds like a clunk clunk clunk noise. If you can deal with the noise do not go out and replace the compressor cause it will work just fine like that.

I have a 1995 24.5 cu. ft. GE Profile refrigerator. When it shuts off there is a loud clunk. I think it could be the compressor turning off. Other than that it seems to be working fine. Is this a serious...


The compressor is sitting on springs inside a metal case. When it stops, the centrifical force is absorbed by these springs. If one or more springs become weak or break, the compressor hits against the outer case a time or two. (CLUNK CLUNK clunk) There is really nothing you can do about it, short of replacing the compressor. (read big bucks) NOTE: If you take a new compressor and give it a shake, you will hear the same clunk. If the noise is really bothering you, I'd say after 15 years, it's time to move that refrig to the basement and get a new energy star model for your kitchen. (the old one most likely has several more years worth of clunking before it truely dies)

Compressor is making very loud clunk when shutting off.


I think the wire was kinda expensive. If I were you I would try to save the fridge. I think you should unplug it for a couple hours, take everything out for a while and remove any ice. Once the fridge reached room temp, the refrigerant should have made its way back to the compressor. Plug it back in and see if it makes the noise again.
It might just be the fan in the freezer. I would try the unplug/deice for a few hour method first because it is free before you try to replace a fan that might be bumping ice. Good luck!

Good day,
If it makes the clunk or banging noise when the compressor is shutting off, then yes, internal spring or springs inside the compressor have broken.
Only solution to that problem is a new compressor.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

Kenmore fridge, about 8 years old, making noise


The compressor on your fridge is mounted on rubber grametts and inside the dome the internal parts the do the pumping of the refrigerant are mounted on springs. When a compressor gets old some people complain about two much vibrating, this could be the rubber grommets the support the compressor. When one of the support springs inside the compressor is broken it will have a distinct rapping sound when the compressor shuts off. There isn`t anything you can do about this, short of replacing the compressor. It will eventually get worse untill something is seriously broken inside the compressor and the compressor will die. You may want to consider replacing the compressor now or purchase a new fridge. You will need to consider the cost of both and the age of the fridge" Is it worth repairing?". You can actualy find a repair company in your area from this site if you like, and compare the costs.I hope I have helped explained the problem well enough for you. I will help you as much as I can.
