SOURCE: frig makes a very loud booming noise/ratteling what is the cause?

The noise is coming from the compressor and is a result of a broken support spring inside the compressor. When the unit shuts down, the inner casing rattles against the outer casing because the spring is not there to keep them apart. The only fix is to replace the compressor but otherwise it is just bothersome.

SOURCE: my 71 vw bug has started making knocking noise

Sure.
If I remember right, there is a long pipe that attaches to the transaxle shifter, and goes up to underneath the stick.
There is a nylon bushing that holds it in place on the stick end. It wears thin and falls out, allowing this long pipe to bang around.
Mark the edge of the shifter plate first, then unbolt the 2 13mm bolts, to remove the shifter and the lock out plate underneath it.
Remember the orientation of the lockout plate, or keep it with the shift plate, so that you don't try to reinstall it upside down later.
Then pull out the stick.
Notice the prong and how it fits into the groove of the cup on the end of the long pipe, for reinstallation.

Then grab the long pipe and move it around.
See how it hits the edge of a hole in a metal support, instead of being held tightly by a plastic bushing.
If I remember right, the new bushing has a split on one side so that you can open it and put it around the pipe, and then you slide it back until it snaps into the hole.
Grease it well.
Put the shift plate back where is was, or else you might have trouble shifting into all the gears.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot model 106. When the motor kicks on, there is an extremely loud a knocking noise which continues until the motor stops. What is the problem? Can I fix it without buying parts?


the compressor has a spring loaded base that with time wears out and will make a knocking noise when starting or especially when turning off. some Tecs say its not much to worry bout other then the noise not sure where I stand on that issue though.

Where is the water filter on kenmore coldspot 106.9505712


On the front bottom of your unit you have a grill. On the grill there is a round knob. Turn the knob 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull the filter out. Note the slot on the back of the knob that holds the old filter. Slide the old filter out of the slot and replace with the new filter.
Reinsert the filter with the knob into the filter housing. Turn the knob 1/4 turn clockwise to lock it in.
Now, the new filter has air in it. At your water dispenser, fill cups with water. There will be a lot of air and water coming out. Continue this until all of the air is out of the filter and there is just water fill.
When to change your water filter - Your unit has a water filter change light. This light is not tied into water pressure. It is like a egg timer. Every 6 months it will light. This does not mean you need to change your water filter. Change your water filter when your ice cubes start to get small or the water coming out of your dispenser is of a low flow. Depending on your family size, you may not need to change your water filter for several years.

Check the tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is next to the motor and the bearing may be shot.

My kenmore coldspot refrigerator sounds like it is backfiring. Air in the line?


If it is the water line you speak of the I would just let the water flow until the lines are clear. Otherwise I would be looking at the fan motors mocking the noise. There is no possible way for air to get into the refrigeration lines. Good luck

We have an 11 year old fisher-paykel fridge .For past 6 months several times a day it makes a loud knocking noise


If this noise happens when the compressor turns on and shuts off it is called a compressor knock. All the internal workings of the compressor are supported by springs, over time the springs wear out and become weak. When the compressor stops or starts the tourq causes the internal parts to hit aginst the casing of the compressor. Sounds like a clunk clunk clunk noise. If you can deal with the noise do not go out and replace the compressor cause it will work just fine like that.

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


Have you checked the wire harness ,because the tapping of just 2 wires hitting the cabinet is overlooked alot.The noise just 2 wires makes simulates a hammer knocking inside.If the problem isn't escalating than check to see if your tub support arms are all tight.There are 12 of them.
