The clunking noise, or shattering.. isn't likely to ever become a problem as far as cooling goes.... It will be more than likely try-your-patience than anything else . The compressor has springs located inside which are used to reduce the piston-travel when the unit reaches temperature and shuts off. Strange as it may sound, it won't cause the unit any harm.

SOURCE: kenmore coldspot not making ice, and not cooling in the bottom

Your refrigerator is frosted up. Remove the inside panel of your freezer. Defrost the ice out of the coils and check the heater and bi-metal. If both are good then your defrost timer is bad. If one is bad replace and you have it fixed. Good luck.

SOURCE: kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works

Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

I have a Kenmore to freezer model 106.74253400 when it stops running it clunks multiple times and shakes sounds like someone is knocking it is cooling properly. It's 9 years old.


The compressor motor is rattling around in it's shell. It had mounts, but they wear out. It may be ok, but I would price replacing the compressor, or the whole unit, depending on what shape it is in.

The frigerator & freezer are not cooling properly . i hear the compressor running . i have also diconnected cleanned inside and out but still the unit is not cooling properly . even on higest settings


If the compressor is running almost all the time (and the compressor sounds ok - no pinging/clunking),
then your side-by-side has developed a coolant leak.

When a system is low on coolant, the thermostat detects the warm condition of the refrigerator, and
runs the compresor motor in an attempt to cool off the refrigerator compartment, but if there's little
or no refrigerant in the system, the system's attempt to cool off the refregerator/freezer will fail,
with the symptom that the user wil hear the compressor motor running constantly.

For the second time in the 4 or 5 years that I have owned my Kenmore 16.7 upright it quit cooling altogether again -- the first time I cooled the compressor with a damp (to wet) towel and a fan, being...


If the compressor is overheating I would check the condensor fan and make sure it's turning. Sounds like you wouldn't have noticed this already though. Also, if the compressor is turning on for 5 or 10 seconds and then clicking off then your start relay is probably bad. Pull the relay off the compressor and shake it. If something is loose inside then it's bad. That is, if it's a whirlpool made kenmore. Kenmore doesn't make appliances they only brand them. The refrigerator could have been made by Whirlpool, Frigidaire, GE, LG, Maytag, Amana, or other. So, it's depenant on who made it.

Kenmore top freezer, Refrierator shuts off with loud clunk.


It sounds like you may have a compressor that is working hard against high pressure due to a dirty condenser or a condenser fan not running or blocked. If all is well otherwise, the mounting springs inside the compressor may have broken or are weak. The only fix then is a new compressor.

IT SOUND AS THOUGH THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT RUNNING. IF IT IS AND YOU HAVE NO COOLING, THEN YOU HAVE A SEALED SYSTEM PROBLEM AND WILL NEED A SERVICE TECH. IF IT IS NOT RUNNING, UNPLUG IT AND REMOVE THE RELAY AND OVERLOAD FROM THE SIDE OF THE COMPRESSOR. MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THE WIRES CONNECT AND REMOVE THEM. NEXT, SHAKE THE RELAY AND LISTEN FOR WHAT SOUNDS LIKE A BUNCH OF SMALL ROCKS IN IT. IF YOU HEAR THIS, THE CERAMIC DISC IN THE RELAY IS BLOWN AND YOU NEED A NEW ONE. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE POWER SURGES TO BLOW THESE DISCS.
