THERE IS A FAN IN THE BACK OF THE FRIDGE , INSULATION GETS LOSE AND HITS THE FAN. REMOVE THE LOSE ISOLATION OR WHATEVER IS HITTING THE FAN.. I THINK THIS IS THE PROBLEM..JAY THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA
there is a evaporator defrosting problem; ice building-up. the evap fan is mounted right on top of the evap coil. this will get progressively worse; and, the fan will get completely jammed with ice; and stop altogether. your fridge will get warm and the freezer will not cool properly. you should get it looked at asap..
Without actually putting gauges on the system to see what is really going on, I would say that your compressor has failed. There is a good chance that it is something inside that has broken. Turning it off and back on will give it another life sometimes but like youexperienced it is usually short lived.
I assume that you have checked that the condenser fan is running underneath the fridge. Also that the condenser coils are not completely plugged with dirt. These things can also make your firdge od wierd things...
This should give you a couple of things to checkout, but I fear that the compressor is bad and you will need to replace it or get a new refrigerator. If you choose to replace the compressor get a full price quote before the work is done, as it may not be worth doing if you have an older refrigerator.
I think the banging means the compressor is shot. (more like a load "clunk"). I had the same noise on a dehumifier.) I dont' think replacing a compressor is a DIY, and doubt it is economically efficient. But I leave that to the specialists to comment on. Check Craig's List in your area - you can get a good deal for a few hundred bucks.
Also, the "clanging noices" is probably the fan blades for the air circulator that moves cold air from the freezer to refrig compartment. Check the online manual for your model (exploded parts view) to see where it is located and if it is readily accessible by taking out a few screws inside the refrigerator. Might be more than one fan - open the door when it happens and see if you can locate where the noice is coming from. This is a plausible DIY - I did it only my old fridge - replacement parts were cheap. But you might even be able to just reallign the fan blades so they don't clang.
its a heater cycle problem..the defroster is not working properly. its building up ice in the evaporator that touches the evaporator fan that makes that loud noise but stops when you open a door. it could be either a bad heater, a bad thermo disc or a bad timer.hope i was able to help
I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
