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

Makes a loud clunk every now and again. It


That's usually mounts inside the compressor. 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 fridge.

Refrigerator makes fairly loud noises of a clunking kind but runs and stays cold.


Clunking noises usually comes from the rapid stop of the compressor. It will not hurt a thing. The rubber grommets which the compressor sit on for cushioning, have most likely hardened and are transferring the noise to the frame or casing. The compressor runs at 3600 rpm's and when you tell it to stop on a dime, it can't. The result is a couple of clunks or so. Also check the drip pan for improper positioning. I have seen them make noise also.
