Could be a couple of things, but it's most likely related to the refrigerant system. With the unit running, take the toe grill off the bottom front of the freezer. You should be able to see the condenser, which is a flat rectangular object made of black steel tubing. Try moving the condenser (gently) up or down and see if that makes any difference in the noise.level. If it does, take a piece of folded up cardboard and wedge it between the condenser and the floor...that should make things quieter.

If that dosen't work, your problem could be the compressor, which iis a lot more serious. Compressors aren't DIY friendly. and I'd advise against going any further.

If the unit is less than a year old, it should be under warranty. Check your owners manual for details.

Good luck!!

Hello,

You need to check for the refrigerator level, drain pan, condenser fan, evaporator fan and inspect the compressor mounts for the cause of noise. Any popping or hissing sound is normal on frost free refrigerators.

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.

Loud banging/thumping during spin cycle on my kenmore front load


this sounds like this could be the bearings,to check for this,open door and with yourhand lift the inner chrome drum and let it fall then lift again and if you feel a knocking sound and a lot of play in it then its the bearings,i know there should be movement in the drum but this will feel more of a knocking.

Kenmore Coldspot freezer is buzzing loudly


See if pressing on the back panal makes a difference and see if anything is putting pressure on the panel. If its vibration it is trial and error to get it positioned to quiet it down. If it is the bearing replacement is the cure.

Refridgerater shuts off with a bang


When you look at the compressor of a refrigerator, what you see is actually just an outer case. The compressor is inside that case, supported on four springs. If you give a compressor a shake (even a new one) you will hear the inner compressor part knock on the outer case. Sometimes, if a spring brakes or gets weak, when the compressor stops running, the momentum will then cause it to strike the outer case, causing a loud knock or two. Most refrigerators will work fine for many years if this condition occurs. It is a bit annoying, but the only fix would be to replace the compressor, which is generally prohibitively expensive if the unit is no longer in warranty. Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my overall score. Thanks.
