My house is only 2 years old and has begun making a "hammering" noise when I turn on the cold water tap in the bathroom only. The water will actually stop flowing in a moment or two.

If the water actually stops running it might be a problem in the internal balancing valves. Some valves will restrict flows of the other water-supply: If there is slow hot water it throttles the cold water, if there is slow cold water it throttles the hot water. It is meant to stop the screaming in the shower if a toilet for example is flushed and the cold water pressure drops. Some but not all valves can be taken apart and cleaned. Turn off both shut off vavles first!

Noisy water pipes when neighbours use water


Install air chamber to cushion sudden-stop of flowing water.
Water flow coming to sudden stop is called water hammer, and will bang pipes, but also loosen plumbing joints, causing leaks.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#bang
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Flow-rates-water-hammer-600.jpg

Air chamber has to be vertical, and about 18" long, with cap on top.
By code each Hot and Cold line at each tap will have air chamber located behind the wall. So there are two air chambers at each tap.

In your case, you can probably add air chamber to your Hot and Cold lines and solve problem for both dwellings.

Water hammer is caused because water does not compress like air.
So when long column of water suddenly stops... the whole pipe-full of water comes to sudden halt... and that water could weigh 1-1/2 pounds ... and just like a hammer head moving, the weight of water bangs the pipes to dissipate energy, causing noise.

You can use a water hammer arrestor and hook it up to old washing machine hot valve by use of a standard washer hose. This type of aresstor is basically. a shock absorber. You will needtonget pipe adapters to go from hose thread to pipe thread.If you can mount the hammer arressror higher then the washer valve. Hook everything up and turn old hot water valve back on.

You have water hammer effect it is caused by a fast closing valve,it can be solved by installing a water hammer arestor in the plumbing line or maybe the water pressure is too high and a pressure reducing valve can be installed in the main water line.(the pipes in the wall are not secured properly that's why they vibrate)

What causes pipes to bang when hot water tap opened may be air locks but water seems to flow okay but the noise causes concern


no water hammers installed above the water heater. You can buy these hammers but they are not fun to put on yourself

We have a bottom freezer Kenmore refrigerator, and it makes a very loud tapping noise, almost like someone hammering. Then it will make on loud pop and quiet down for awhile.


Which is your model.
Also how about cooling temperatures are they ok.
Is the sound like the motor compressor hemmering or the fan blades hammer.

5 year old Frigidaire top freezer works ok but makes a\poppng sound on shutdown.


Would you describe it as a popping or more like a knock sound? You may have a bad spring inside your compressor allowing the piston housing to contact the case wall of the compressor. It usually sounds like someone tapping a thick piece of steel with a hammer.
If the pop noise occurs well after the unit shuts down it may just be the liner has contracted from the cold and is shifting around, make sure it is not set too cold.

No cold water from bathroom tap


Sounds like you need to replace your shower valve, especially if this is the only fixture in the house being affected. You could try to replace the cold water cartridge first. Hope this helps

Clunking noise in sink


You are describing a problem known as water hammer. This will ultimately cause damage somewhere in your plumbing system so it should be addressed. If you are handy you can install an air chamber near the sink. If you want more information let me know. good luck.
