    Thanks, I thought that might be the problem. At the local Home Depot I looked a new refigerators and they only carried a one year warranty. I guess I'll keep it until it dies>

Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.

KNOCKING NOISE WHIRLPOOL GD5RHAXNB00


ME TOO !!!!! THE COMPRESSOR RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS ARE LIKELY WORN OR LOOSE. THE HARMONICS OF GAS PRESSURE "HAMMERING" ARE CAUSING IT TO SHAKE.
THIS IS WHAT I DID: UNPLUG THE FRIGE, AND REMOVED THE CARDBOARD PANEL ON BACK. THE COMPRESSOR IS A GALLON SIZED BLACK GLOBE SHAPED UNIT. IT HAS 4 RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS/FEET. SHIFT OR WIGGLE THE COMPRESSOR AROUND SOME AND THEN TIGHTEN BUSHINGS WITH 7/16" (11 MM) WRENCH UNTIL IT GETS TIGHTER. YOU MIGHT NEED TO REPEAT UNTIL YOU FIND A QUIET/SWEET SPOT . WHILE YOU ARE DOWN THERE, ALSO REMOVE THE FRONT COVER AND CLEAN THE DUST OFF OF THE COILS WITH A VACUUM. WATCH OUT FOR SHARP METAL EDGES AND HOT COILS WHILE WORKING. .... DOUG

check and clean the condenser coil under the ref , remove the back to the ref if the compressor is real hot you need to put a fan behind the ref for a couple of hours until the compressor cools down then plug it back in.

Fridge isn't cold


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

A three loud consecutive popping sounds at various


You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.

Comppresor stoped working


Go to the back of the machine and take the lower rear plate off. Taking this plate off will expose the compressor. Check to see the compressor is humming or is hot. If niether take off the relay (located on the side of the compressor) Shake it and if a loud rattling noise is heard replace it. If no rattling noise or the compressor is hot or humming then the compressor is bad.

Groaning noise on GE side by side refrigerator


Usually the groaning noise is from a locked up icemaker. Remove the icemaker and defrost it with hot water. Check to make sure the unit is in good shape and not chipping. Let it dry out and then reinstall.

Wirlpool side - by side


There is a relay called PTC relay. It is located on the compressor. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Sometimes this relay starts a noise like clicking off and on to give you a warning. sometimes they just go out.


Let me know if you need any more help. ken
