The "popping" sound is more than likely to be generated from the defrost cycle that it goes through normally about 3-4 per week at varying times. If all is working well then you should have no worries as this is a normal sound that comes from the expansion of materials when the defrost heaters come on. If this sound is annoying or bothersome, you can have a noise reduction kit installed to help alleviate the sound. You may be able to purchase one at; www.repairclinic.com, or www.appliancepros.com, or from a local dealer/servicer.

Refrig making noiise


They are telling it is normal because they dont want to replace it. When in all honesty it isnt. Behind the inside pannel is a protective layer of insulation with a thin layer of metal. The insulation is either not covering the entire plactic sheild. Causeing the metal to contract. It will also make it run more because it warms up faster than needed. Thats where you hear the loud noise comming from. I would demand they take it back to the store and replace it with a new one or call the better buisness beu. Hope this helped.

I have had what sounds like the same problem for over a year with my Samsung RF263 refrig. It makes very loud popping noises like expansion noises when heat hits your house siding or a railroad track. The noises are loud enough that they actually startle people, and our cat. I had a repair man in last May 2013 but no luck.

I finally did a lot of listening, testing, etc. and found the problem. I noticed it would occur whenever the compressor came on. I thought it might be ice build up, so I took the cover plate off over the evaporator in the back of the refrig compartment. There was no ice build up. I then left the cover off and wiring attached and no noise after a day. After a few other trials I added some more weather stripping to increase the distance between the evaporator coils and the cover plate and that help quite a bit but not totally. I still get a pop now and then. Another problem I noticed with this partial solution is that it causes the shelving to not be aligned. A 'V' gap forms between the shelves and they droop a little. I'm still trying to figure out how to fix this but haven't had any good ideas yet.

This is a very annoying problem and a design flaw in my opinion. Whether Samsung has a solution for it I don't know but I plan on checking before my warranty runs out.

sounds like the water inlet valve/solenoid may be bad. I've had some to work awhile then quit. It could be trash inside of the inlet valve. If it has a water filter on the frig try changing it also. But try the solenoid first by turning your freezer section thermostat to its highest reading to for 24hrs.to see if the solenoid is going to work.

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.

Loud noise


Check the relay on the side of the compressor. Has a metal clip holding it to the compressor. Check with a volt meter and also check the compressor for voltage. no voltage or low at the compressor replace the relay. You can also take the relay off and shake it. If it makes a rattling sound replace it

Frigidaire fridge door makes a loud popping sound


You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.
