Sounds like your compressor is going bad. Depending on how old your fridge is, I'd look into investing into a new one.

Why is the Panasonic NA-F70B3 on its very first test wash started rattling really loud and banging on the side of the machine Casing

Any loud rattling sound is bad news. The drum should not be banging on anything!! Return or file a complaint with where you purchased it immediately. Do not wait, there will be a time-limit on returns and after that you are on your own.

Refrigerator not getting that cold. Freezer working normal. Was making a rattling noise for a few weeks.

The Rattling noise is the fan hitting ice. Your defrost thermostat is the likely cause here is a link to guide you through replacement

On Monday evening I thought someone was setting off firecrackers. Got up and into the kitchen and realized it was the refrigerator. Opened both freezer and refrigerator doors, still cold but a soda...

Heard loud banging noise coming from fridge. Sound was like someone jack hammering concrete. Turned it off for a few hours. Then turned back on. Freezer is working fridge area is not cold.

The sound you heard was probably the evaporator fan hitting ice, meaning your evaporator was frozen up. It sounds like the unit is trying to cool the refrigerator but the air isn't getting to the refrigerator area because either the baffle is blocked or it's getting clogged with food or something. Find out why the cold air isn't getting to the refrigerator and you shouldn't have a problem with a frozen evaporator anymore.

Compressor bangs

If you take the back off you will proably see that the feet are bent. Try to straighten out as much of the metal as you can. The compressor is a motor that sits on springs to keep it quiet. If you get the compressor to sit level the banging should stop.

Noisy Fridge!

Have you ever cleaned the coil under the refrigerator? If the coil is very dirty the compressor will run very hot and when it finaly shuts off its banging is a sigh of relief. Pull the bottom panel off and vacuum inside as far as u can reach. They also sell brushes for cleaning them.
