you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
with closing properly - taping things off with garbage bags can cause more harm
than good. Trapping moisture under the bags will lead to condensation which is
mildly acidic. The lack of any airflow leads to corrosion and accelerated wear.
If you are going to cover anything you must make sure air can circulate thru
freely or you will actually need new equipment sooner than if you had not
covered it at all.
can be from your impeller but only if it is cavitation...are you getting air in
the pump basket or air bubbles from the returns in the pool? If not the noise
is the bearings. If the seal has leaked at all it can be what caused the noise.
If not it is the condensation mentioned above or age/contamination. Whatever
the cause it is only relevant in keeping this from happening again sooner that
it will naturally.
As long as
the damage is limited to the bearings a new set of bearings and a pump seal would
cost you $100-$125 in a repair shop...if you buy parts to do it yourself it
should be under $30. A word of caution - if you have never repaired this type
of equipment and are not familiar with bearing and seal changes the ~$80 labor
charge is worth it.
there is more damage than just those parts a new motor and seal should be under
$200 total; again from a shop. A whole new pump would exceed $300 for most
units, maybe more.

The clunking noise you hear , is probably when the compressor shuts off , due to temp reached or when it goes into defrost . An internal motor mount spring , inside the compressor , is broken ( rusted and broke ) . The refrig can go on working for years , without any problem , except noisey , when it cuts off . To stop the noise , replaceing the compressor is the only option . I have heard of placeing objects under 1 leg of the compressor , to " re-adjust " the ballance , but thru my experience , another spring broke , causing more knocking .
You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.
sounds like the compressor vibration dampers are wearing out. the dampers are the rubber washers that seperate the compressor from the chassis of the fridge. when they start to deteriorate, and the compressor kicks on, it will bounce against something in the chassis, causing a knocking noise.
my kenmore fridge is loud everytime the compressor comes and stays on. I have developed tinitis in the year because of this noise. Solution to this problem : I will never ever buy another Kenmore refrigerator.
