Frigidaire FFTR1619RS1 makes knocking noises while running. Is this normal? See videos inside.


I would suspect it is a loose blade on the condenser fan or else something caught on the fan to make it off balance. Pop the back cover off and take a look. Once, I had a fridge that sucked up a plastic bag.

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?


Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

Knocking noise coming from bottom of refrigerator


check the compressor for operation adn check the fan in the back of unit to make sure it is running...whirlpool units are notorious for compressor relay failure normally they click in and out every few minutes... if it is a knocking noise and continuous make sure compressor is not trying to start and sitting there shaking... normally it will stop after a few minutes and then start again....

"you are right that cleaning under your refrig wont get rid of a "compressor knocking" sound. what it might do is to lower the amount of heat from the condenser coils and thus cause less pressure and stress on the compressor making it run easier and less likely to bang or knock when shutting off.
if your coils were very plugged with lint and you have cleaned them, that will help but it wont "fix" the problem.
inside the compressor is a motor and a pump, the motor is supported by 3 springs and they can stretch or break causing the motor to hit one side of the black outer can and cause the noise.
that may be too technical, but its not something that can be repaired without replacing the compressor, at a cost of 700-800 bucks. most would not pay this as its not worth putting that amount of money into an older refrig."

"think that you are hearing either a freon related sound or even just the sounds of the unit going thru defrost.
how often do you hear the noise? just maybe once a day or is it everytime the unit shuts off?
either way i would rule out the ice maker and water system as when the "shut off arm" is up then it is off and wont make any noise, or ice.
keep the i/m arm up and then listen for the next day or two and try to narrow down when it makes the noise and frequency you hear it and then get back to me.
it may not even be a problem, just normal operating sounds that cant be changed."

My amana refrigerator is making a knocking type noise


hi,

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.

thank you,

Kenmore Coldspot 69182990 - knocking noise


check te rubber mounts at the bottom of the compressor
the rubber rots after some time and the compressor moves on shutting down as the knocking could be that noise

Refrigerator knocking noise


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.
