Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
When the compressor stops, the movements of the internal components are normally absorbed by the internal spring supports. If a spring breaks, etc., the inner moving part will contact the outer case and give a knocking noise or two when it stops. You can make the compressor (even a new one) do this by giving it a shake. The compressor will most likely run for years this way with no performance problems. It is rather expensive to replace a compressor, (especially for only a noise issue) so most people just live with it or get a new refrig and use their old one as a second refrig in a basement or where ever. Please don't bother to rate this, as anything but a Fix-Ya drops my score.
