Re: thundering noise coming from hot taps,bath,sink...
Sounds to me like you need to have a water hammer device installed into your plumbing, I have only run across this just once before, the noise is very loud and very bothersome, you will need to contact a plumber and have him install a water hammer device into your system, also vibration dampers would probably help as well, if your water lines are running through floor joists and touching them, hope that helps

forget about using youtube try googling it and see if u can get help? not sure but the compressor has a seal that separates the coolant from the oil and when it goes or starts to leak u may get weird sounds? sorry cannot help more Ive heard clicking sounds before from the compressor but it was usually due to bad relay having to do with the starting process
thats not a fan noise. to me, sounds like pressure going thru an expansion valve. you better get on an appliance thread website with that one. meantime....loose mounting of condenser pipe or evaporator outlet???
It maybe just coincidental that the noise appeared after the storm. However, if carbon deposits caused by an electric ark have created interference to something like the fan motor bearings. One would that any associated electronic device would not function either, if fitted.
This might be a normal noise. when they switched to 134a refrigerant, they had to develop a new oil. This new oil comes over or circulates more easily then the old oil. The oil and refrigerant flow through a capillary tube under 180 psi to the evaporator where it expands. the noises from this process can sound like tapping, chirping, clicking, squealing or wheezing. A hot day, a dirty condenser or when the unit comes out of defrost will make the noises more noticeable.
Here are the steps I took to fix thi:. First, if you tapped into a copper line near your sink, turn off the off the tap completely and turn it back on again. Why? Occasionally, calcium deposits will build there and cut down your water pressure. You may have enough pressure to run your ice maker, but not enough to push the ice out of the line (I'll talk about this later). Turning the tap on and off breaks up the calcium. This will also fix an ice maker that's slow to make ice or makes hollow cubes.
Next, I just kept running my water pump (about sixty seconds or more at a time) until the water finally started to come through. When it did, a few inch-long pieces of of ice came through -- telling me that the problem was a frozen water line. If running the water pump several times doesn't work (I think it took me six tries), consider turning off your fridge for a while (be sure to remove food and pack in dry ice).
