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.

SOURCE: Loud noise when stops ''running''.

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

Engine making loud noise when running I removed the serpentine belt and stop?


Turn all the pulleys by hand. Chances are you will be able to tell if there are bad bearings in cone of the following: Power steering pump, alternator, idler pulley, A/C compressor. The one that is failing will probably feel rough when you turn it or have a lot of play in it.

This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

Fuel pump noise 2005 Buell xb9sx


That is the fuel pump doing its job of pumping. If it stops making noise, it stopped pumping, and no gas is getting into your motor. Your bike will not run without a running fuel pump. :)

Frigidaire dishwasher model GLD2445RFCO is making noise


I have the same problem with my dishwasher. If you remove the kick plate while it is running, There is an electric motor underneath. If you push up and pull forward on the electric motor, the noise will stop. I used a block to prop it up and the noise stopped. You may want to try it.

Dryer makes a loud noise then stops


If it stops running when hot it may be the motor. The belt or drum rollers would not stop it from running.
