When water is flowing to door dispenser or ice maker the fridge makes a loud banging noise. Sounds like water hammer - maybe a valve is malfunctioning? What/where should i look for the problem?

Sounds like your water has been off for maintenance. This will make a sound like this but the rest of the faucets would have done it also when you first ran water through them the first time. So if you have a filter on your fridge, remove it and re prime before putting back on. If not, look at the back, bottom where the water supply connects to the back. Have some one try to get water in the door while you hold your hand on the valve where the water supply connects. See if it vibrates and makes the noise. Also follow the line and see if you have two different water valves. If so do the same with it. One should be making the noise if your filter does not have air in it. Good luck.

there are 2 fan's in the uint one is located by the compressor itself, and the second is loacted in freezer compartment behind hte back wall, it is possible and fairly common that the bearing on one or the other has gone bad causing your noise issue. if it soulnds as if hte noise is coming from the compressor itself, then your out of luck no repairing that item just a replacement and problalby not worth the cost

My kenmore refrigerator kept running.

from your description it sounds like your hearing the start relay trying to start your compressor. most likely this relay is bad and needs replacing.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

Banging Noise

If is sounds like a hollow metallic sound then the compressor is likely out of position os the unit has been mis-treated. if this is the case then the compressor will have to be changed (should be a 5 or 10 year wty) If is i a light sounding tap then it is likely to be some of the copper tubing is hitting the chassis. There is a metal or plastic cover that runs along the back lower part of the fridge, remove this and gently rock the fridge to see if you can re-create the noise.
