Dometic banging noise


Not real sure what could be banging and clanging as there aren't really any moving parts. There have been some reports of gurgling sounds coming from the cooling unit and also water pipes 'hammering' when the pump is on.

Random banging and whooshing sound


New water heater?
http://waterheatertimer.org/New-water-heater-making-noise.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Repair-water-heater-valve.html
Water does not compress. So each faucet has air chamber located behind wall. Air chamber is usually just a vertical piece of pipe about 18" long with a cap so it never fills with water. When water flows... all the water back to the main supply begins to move toward the faucet. The weight of this water can be considerable. When faucet is turned off, the whole column of water suddenly stops, but weight of water is still pushing forward.
Without air chambers to cushion the sudden stop of water weight, the pipes bang and rattle. With air chambers, the weight of the water pushes up into the air chamber causing the air to compress, which silently cushions the weight of water, but also causes a push-back when water stops moving forward. The push back can then move water backwards where it compresses air inside another air chamber. So the water can slosh back and forth.
IF you have factory-installed heat traps on your water heater, these things have rubber baffles. The baffles hum and rattle and whistle and clog and cause strange sounds that carry through the pipes and water heater and wood joists etc. The water sloshing back and forth can move the baffles and cause noise.
Or maybe you have a check valve that has gotten loose.

When water enters fridge for ice maker, it makes banging sounds. I have replaced valve several times, but still gets banging sound after a short time of use


The banging sound more than likely is being caused by your water line that is attached to the rear of your unit banging agains the chassis or wall. It can also be the line inside the bottomg of you unit striking something. This banging most likely is caused by what is called a watter hammer. When the ice maker cycles and the water valve opens momentariily the pressure in the line drops and when the vavle closes post add water cycle the pressure rapidly builds up in the line causing the line to move and strike something. Over time this can cause a water leak from the water line chafffing and the line begins to leak. It is not a serious situation but I would keep an eye on the copper or plastic water line to see what it is doing during the add water / fill cycle of the ice maker.

Washer bangs between wash cycle and first spin/rinse cyle


Sounds like you need a water hammer control in your Hot water line, usually it's teed into the line and is just a short length of pipe with a cap on it, acts like a shock absorber

When the refrigerator finish cycling, the compressor shakes and rattles. What is going on?


Inside the compressor , the motor is held by 3 or 4 springs . When 1 of those springs break (either from rust or time) the internal motor will bang the inside of the compressor . This does not mean the compressor will quit , only noisey when cycling off . Only way to stop the noise is to replace the compressor OR try shimming up one of the compressor mounting legs (will take trial and error to determine which leg will stop the banging ) . Always reinstall the rear cover even when checking .

Loud noises, bangs and sounds like water falling


if it’s a banging sound--- I know one of the noises the system 2000 will make is a bang or rattle at the end of the run cycle, which we call "shudder stop". If this is your noise then I have to give you some bad news here. Sorry....... The only way of repairing this is by having your compressor replaced as it has to do with an internal problem in the compressor itself. There may be a silver lining, though, if you are the original purchaser and you have the receipt. Some of these systems came with a 10 year warranty on the compressor, so you might want to check this out.good luck

Loud noise


The vibrating sound you hear could be due to "water hammer" when the fill valve tries to close against high water line pressure. I had that problem and solved it by putting a small valve in the line to the ice maker and closing it little by little until the vibrating went away. You know, the banging could also be water hammer. It only happens at night when the entire neighborhood is asleep and the water pressure is at its highest. You need to check this out because water hammer can be very destructive to the plumbing and the valve.
