Question about Frigidaire 22.6 Cu. Ft. Side By Side Counter Depth Refrigerator, FSC23F7DSB

1 Answer

Model # FRS23LH5DS2: There is a knocking sound in the compressor. The sound comes approximately every 4 to 5 hours. It has been doing this for some time. In the last few days the sound is getting louder. We pulled the frig from the wall and removed the cover at the bottom. We have vaccumed it out and the sound is not as loud as it was before. Any idea what could be causing the knocking sound? Thanks for your reply. Linda O.

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?

Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

AC Compressor

try having someone kill the a/c while you check for the noise. if it stops then check further into the compressor where you said you thought it was coming from. It could be the bearings in the compressor clutch going out.

sounds like a problem with the defrost timer / control board. the defrost timer cycles into defrost every 12 hours and turns off the compressor and fans. it seems like it is malfunctioning and causing problems with other components too.

My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem

Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.
