Question about Refrigerators
When the compressor starts & runs for a few minutes there is a rattling sound that becomes louder for a time & then quietens down (still remaining loud). it sounds like a condenser tube inside the compressor compartment that is rubbing on the frame. The compartment is sealed so I do not know how to insulate the pipe to stop the rattle. I have checked the fan compartment & the rattle is not from there. If I press firmly on the back of the fridge, the noise level will decrease, but start back as soon as the pressure is released. someone mentioned to me to drill a hole in the back and fill it with expanding foam. However, I do not know how close the condenser tubes are to the back wall, and I do not want to take the chance to pierce one.
I have found tubing rattling against plastic tray on right side in back. Also found this tray rattling against frame. You can take back off unit and llisten for noise. Watch out for spinning condensor fan blade. Very sharp, believe me!! Try pressing on tubing.
