I would suggest looking at the fan if there is ice build up it could be inhibiting the fans operation, or fan hitting the ice and clacking

Had the problem in a similar fridge - the repair person said the noise was most likely the sound of ice build up being removed during defrost cycle and not to worry. Suggest you check the freezer temperature is not too cold and building up excess ice.

Normally, all vegetable doors can easily be pulled out as there are minimum 1/8" allowance in both side. I think, your refrigerator got corroded with where indoor compartment is fixed. Please check any dental in iron side of the door, If not, just clean drawers both side with an emery (salt) paper to enable it to enter inside freely.

I have a new Frigidaire 20.6 cu. ft. top freezer without icemaker. When it turns on or goes in its cycle it makes a knocking sound behind freezer compartment, then stops. is this normal? . P.C Richards...


This is normal. It is the sound of the refrigerant flowing through the coil on start up. This will cause the knocking sound you are hearing. It should only last for about 7-10 seconds. You might also hear a cracking noise due to the insulation expanding and contracting due to fluctuating temperature. Refer back to your owners manual under normal operation sounds. Hope this helps.

Look inside the fresh food compartment. Behind the temp. control cover is a defrost timer. Yours may have a small opening that you can put a pencil eraser in and turn clockwise. When you do that the refrigerator should begin cooling again. I will be here to help you get your refrigerator going with diagrams and part numbers, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

Fridgidare/Electrolux top freezer not freezing fan stays on.


Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.

Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.
