Question about Refrigerators
My americana refrigerator is making a knocking type noise frequently. otherwise it is functioning well. i have had it for a year. is it a sign of problems coming up. thank you
The knocking could be the damper if it last for about 5 seconds when the compressor turns on or off, or it can also be the refrigerant gassing off in the evaporator this sound can be really intermittent, but is normal with the refrigerants used today. there is a page in the owners manual devoted to noises your refrigerator can make.

Whirlpool is favorite for that. It in my opinion is due to expansion in the frame. (difference between the inner and outer temp.) Find it mostly with 300 litre and less capacities.Sometimes it shows itself by creating an ice streak starting under the plate in the fridge compartment.

the motor could be on the way out. Put your hand (carefully) on the motor (back of the refridgerator), if it is too hot to touch then the motor is burning out and will need to be replaced.

It could be unequal tightening of the mounting of the compressor. Also check the belt for uneven thickmess...........sodeep

If it seems to be coming from underneath the unit it could be the compressor.

That's usually mounts inside the compressor. Usually when the compressor cuts off. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit
before replacing the compressor or getting a new
Any other noise would be from a fan. One in the freezer behind the back panel and one under the unit where the compressor is.
