Question about Refrigerators
Chances are that black tar like substance you are seeing if from the capacitor. This is were I would start, as a capacitor is not all that expensive. Make sure it is the same rating as the current capacitor, and be aware that capacitors store electricity. When you disconnect the leads don't cross the terminals with your fingers, or you will get a shock. Hope this helps

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. However the compressor you see is actually the outer shell, inside of which is a refrigerant pump (i.e.: compressor) which is on internal support springs. When the unit turns off, the momentum of the internal parts can sometimes knock against the outside of the compressor case. The only "fix" would be a new compressor. However this does not actually indicates compressor failure and most likely will run many more years with no problem.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
