Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
(Reposting, as this problem was mistaking ascribed to a Maytag unit.) Ever since I moved in, the compressor has made a loud clunk when turning off. Returning home after a 3 week trip, I found that the compressor now makes a loud vibrating sound when running. It also seems to be running more often, although the freezer and refrigerator compartments are still cold. The repair guy just listened and said the compressor is going out, no way to know when it will quit. I am willing to buy a replacement, but wondered if it's possible that there is a simple mechanical problem, say a loose bolt or some such. I am fairly handy, although I don't know anything about refrigerators specifically, so if there is something I can check, I will. Thanks for any advice!
Has the refrigerator been shifted, then just you have to leveling the feet, that will cure oft on one or both feet on the front this has little priority but can have influence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hALQ-jqPV-Y otherwise this can made in this more difference

Compressor motor inside the hermetic container has rubber mountings. If any go, the motor will lean in that direction and the motor will hit the shell when it starts, or turns off.
Compressor motor is not going and the guy is full of it.
U cannot open the case and repair the mounting but the motor and its bearings are good to go for a long time, albeit it might have some noise. U can experiment with tilting the compressor assembly in the direction opposite to the bad mounting - often you can reduce and/or completely eliminate the startup/shutdown noise and running noises..
