The compressor rides on springs inside the compressor housing. Sometimes it can jump when it cuts on or off, no big deal.

i have the same problem. took apart the vent in the fridge at the top and thought maybe it needed replacing as that controls the amount of cold coming up from the freezer, but there doesn't seem to be any cold coming through. does anyone know if this is 'blown' through by a fan of some sort?

Fridge too cold.Freezer OK.


You probably have an issue with one of the following:

* temperature control assembly (controls freezer and/or fresh food temperatures)
* damper assembly (allows air from freezer to fresh food compartment)

Contact an appliance service company.

I cleaned out my fridge completely today. Took all the shelves out, cleaned the interior, all the glass over a three hour period. The freezer is working just fine, the fresh food area is nice and dry but...


Manufacturers suggest that it takes approximately 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize in both your freezer and fresh food compartments after being turned off for an extended period of time. Adjust temperature settings to the "half-way" mark for both freezer and fresh food compartments. Allow a period overnight and recheck the temperatures. Also check the condenser coil (usually located underneath the appliance). If clogged with dirt/lint, it needs to be cleaned (carefully) with a condenser coil brush (can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's). Prior to cleaning condenser coil, turn off appliance (there is a condenser fan motor and blade operating while on). Be careful not to damage copper tubing (refrigerant in tubing)!

Fridge making loud snapping noises


we have much the same problem except ours was going on for some hours at a time and then off for short periods. contacted Comet engineer who says its the compressor and will cost almost as much as a new machine to fix it. we are disgusted as its only just over a year old and has been repaired twice already. we would also add that both
the fridge and freezer are now completely out of action and have been all over the Easter period which has caused us much inconvenience. we will take this matter further if no satisfaction is gained from Comet.
