Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Hi, what is probably happening is caused by a broken mounting spring inside the hermetically sealed compressor housing upon which the electric motor sits. If one is broke the motor will bang against the sides of the housing when it shuts off. Nothing you can do about it because you need a tech come out and verify the problem and if it is what I suggest it shouldn't cost you nothing to replace the compressor.

the noise your hearing is a weak spring in the compressor. what happens is the compressor is a motor inside of a steel shell that spins at high rpm's when the unit shuts down and as the compressor starts to stop the weak spring is allowing the compressor motor to bang against the steel shell. around here we actually call these "Bangers". anyway the fix is obviously to replace the compressor. but considering the age of the unit you may want to move it to the garage and buy a new one for the kitchen.
Btw in my experience this does not interfere with normal operation of the unit it is just annoying. If I can be of further assistance please ask thanks Peyton
