SOUNDS LIKE YOUR FAN MOTOR IS EITHER LOOSE OR THE MOTOR IS ABOUT TO GO OUT(NOISE INSIDE COULD BE GEAR IN MOTOR GRINDING WHILE WORKING) it stops when you open the door which shuts off he fan motor to help prevent loos of refrigerated air.

SOURCE: Refrigerator suction/vacuum noise, rear section when freezer door is closed

there is no suction system. flush your defrost drain tube with boiling water and a turkey baster. should get some pretty nasty sludge out and sound will go away.

SOURCE: knocking noise coming from Whirlpool Gold refrigerator

I also have a new Whirlpool Gold fridge (bottom freezer with French doors) and it was making a knocking sound. The knocking sound would start when the fridge kicks in and starts running to cool, and would last for about a minute or less and be a slow knock.
I called Whirpool customer service since it is new and on warranty. They sent out a technician and he said the knocking is from gas/air built up in the copper tubing for the freezer because the copper tubing is too cold, and when the fridge first turns on it forces the air through, making the knocking sound.
His "fix" was to adjust the copper tubing so that it is closer to the heat of the motor/compressor and heat of another copper line so that the cooler line stays warm so the air/gas doesn't build up. His fix worked slightly, but the fridge is still knocking, just not as bad and not as long - it knocks fast for about 5 to 10 seconds instead of a minute.
Going to call customer service again soon and see where to go from here.

SOURCE: GE Profile making knocking noises at different times

I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..

Hi

The sound comes when there is ice build up around the fan and the fan will hit it causing this sound. You can try to leave it unplugged for around 4-24hrs and also make sure that the area near the back is clear so that airflow can get through. If the issue returns then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

GX5FHTXVY Energy Star Gold 24.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom-F


I am not a mechanic, but I do like to fiddle around with problems, to sort of i give my hand a 'try' at it. My next venture is to unplug the freezer, let it stand for a few hours, and re-plug it back on and see what happens. You never know. So, let's give it a go. That's it for now for me.

You have two fans and a compressor which could be making the noise. Inside the freezer behind the back cover is the evaporator fan. It probably stops running when you open the door. Hold the door switch down to keep the fan running to see if it's making the noise.
the compressor and other fan is under the unit accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover.
