Kenmore Refrigerator making loud sounds at shutdown

For almost 3 months my 10 yr old Kenmore refrigerator has been making a loud sound like "2 knocks" when the compressor shuts down.
Other than that, the fridge and freezer seem to run fine.
We are upgrading the fridge and would like to give this one to
a neighbor. Of course, we don't want to give them a fridge that is
going to die soon.
Any advice would be appreciated!

The compressor has a loose or broken spring inside the compressor, unfortunatly it can not be repaired without replacing the compressor, it could last many more years and it could quit as we speak.

best thing is to let the neighbor know of the problem and what is the repair that way they won't think you are ponning off the machine to them, it may outlast your new one, time will tell

My old side by side Kenmore with Icemaker makes a loud rattling sound when it stops running. It is the existing refridgerator from when we bought our house so I don't have any warranty info on it. Any...


If the noise is loud enough that it sounds like somone knocking at your door then it is probably going to be the compressor. There are internal springs and is possible one broke. The only solution is to replace the compressor. It is also possible that the condencer fan motor is hitting something as well when it shuts off. You would have to look at it from the back as it shuts off after running.

My built in side by side is making a noise about every 30 minutes or so that sounds like a woodpecker pecking on it...about 10 times. It is driving me crazy! Have any idea what this might be?


I have the exact problem with my built0in side-by-side Monogram. 1 yr 3 months old, and it sounds m=like a woodpecker for 3 seconds approximately 1ce/hr. Does not appear related to ice maker. You can create the sound by changing the temp setting on the drawer at the bottom. As you command a lower temp, the sound happens a couple seconds. Actually sounds like a solenoid opening and closing at 60Hz frequency, as though a control board were feeding AC to a DC coil. Any ideas? Fortunately, this fridge has a 2 year warranty, but this should not happen to a $6K dual condenser fridge in just over a year!!

Our Kenmore side by side refrigerator(#106 5682 603) has developed an occasional knocking sound - fairly loud. I obtained a new water filter from "filtersfast.com" and have recently changed this filter...


If it sounds like it may be coming from the back of the freezer, it is the refrigerant "popping" as in feeds into the evaporator. Some models have this issue and there is a "fix" for it. (yours may not be this one though). Although the sound is annoying, it doesn't really hurt anything. That's not to say the icemaker isn't making the noise, or something else. But I am not sure where it is coming from.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

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.

Kenmore Refrigerator making loud noise


Does the sound occur when the compressor is starting or shutting down? and only lasts for a couple of seconds? I had one do the exact same thing. Sometimes it would also wake me up at night. If so, I'm afraid he is right. On the bright side, it worked fine for years. I gave it to a girlfriend when I purchased a bigger one and it is still working today. The only thing you can do is change the compressor, which is probably not $$ practical.

Refrigerator makes lot of noise


titu, can you be more specific on what kind of noise you're hearing. If it's a squealing noise I would suspect either the evaporator or condensor fan. See if you can isolate where it's coming from. Catriver..post back.
