SOURCE: Refrigerator vibrates when compresor comes on

Hi, It sounds as though the compressor has a broken valve or rod making noise internally. The compressor should be quite. You can hear them run but not enough to bother you at all. I have never heard of any of the newer ones having a compressor that supposed to be louder. Sounds as though he didn't want to do anything I don't know. I cant tell you how to check it as you would need to put a set of manifold gauges on it to see if it is working properly. If it continues, I would make another call for free of charge and have them back out! Keep me posted,

SOURCE: This refrigerator starts "Banging" sounds

This sound like one of the fans is hitting something.
One fan is in the freezer behind the back cover probably near the top.
Another fan is around back behind the cardboard cover. It blows air out the back and you can probably see it without removing the cover. Since this one is near the compressor it's most likely the one.

Refrigerator makes a ping pong ball noise when the fridge is moved? What is up with that? there is nothing in the manual about this issue. My refrigerator is only been in my house for 48 hours. Should I be...

Hi my name is Sean, No you should not be concerned, but should try to not shake the refrigerator too much, the sound your hearing is the piston in the compressor hitting the side of the compressor housing. Its attached to springs inside and so when the refrigerator is moved it will move back and forth and hit the side of the compressor. Just make sure you dont move it while the compressor is running could damage the piston.

How do i restore the surface of my outdoor ping pong table

Hi there,

Use painters tape to cover the white lines of your table tennis table.

Use sandpaper (150grit) to smooth the surface. This will level any bumps or scratches. Fill deep cracks with wood filler, let it dry and sand the table again.
Make sure that the table is clean before you begin the painting procedure.

Use chalkboard spray paint about 8 inches away from the table and spray each side. Allow 8 hours for the paint to dry then repeat with another coat. Next day, repeat the process so you have 3 layers of paint. Chalkboard spray paint helps the ball bounce to the correct height and speed.

Remove the painters tape after the last coat and allow the table to dry for at least 24 hours.
Hope this helps, vote me if so :)

Refrigerator making noise like ball bouncing

No. This is not a great deal. Your compressor is switching off at times which makes the sound, but it is a power saving technique adopted by the manufacturer. It is certainly not a problem.

Ice maker does not make ice

Hello, Ice makers are very simple machines and only have 2 components. The first is the ice maker located inside the freezer, The second is the dual valve located behind the refridgerator behind the panel at the rear. One valve is for the ice maker, the other is for the water dispenser. When one of these components go bad the result is no ice. There is a very simple way for the layman to figure out where your problem lay. If you have a ping pong ball or shot glass place it on the icemaker and wait 12 hours, if the ping pong ball falls into the ice try the ice maker is good and you need to replace the inlet valve...if the ping pong ball stays in place it means the ice maker is bad and you should replace this. If you have any other questions regarding this problem please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike
