At the end of "some cycle" I guess the cooling cycle. i.e. when you hear the refrigerator running. There is a noise. Quite frankly it sounds like a solenoid valve going shut. Not all that loud but loud enough so if you are in the vicinity, you hear it. Yes, I have tried to listen for it to see if I could physically locate where it is coming from. Sooner or later I get tired if waiting for the unit to stop running, or I get interrupted, or on occasion, it doesn't make the noise. It definitely is not the ice maker solenoid. I also have taped any tubing against the back of the refrigerator to ensure that it isn't slapping against it and over amplifying the noise.
The refrigerator is about nine years old.

YOUR ARE GETTING ICE AROUND YOUR FREEZER FAN BLADE THAT IS THE NOISE YOU ARE HEARING IT COMES FOR THE ICE MAKER FILL TUBE THAT COMES IN FROM THE BACK WALL OF FREEZER TO THE ICE MAKE YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING TO FIX IT JUST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NO ICE BIULD UP IN THAT TUBE IT MAKES IT LEAK DOWN ON YOUR FAN
Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
I did not see a model or brand on your request but i'm going to guess that ist a G E and the clicking rellays are a common noise when the program board has failed . the unit will shut down / as the board controls the compresor and fans / heater //defrost cycles . if more help is needed i need the brand and model # .. hope this helped mm feed back pls and thanks for ysing fix ya .
if you hear a noise like clicking when the compressor tries to start and unit will not cool the starter overload on the side of the compressor that starts it has burnt out simple replace the starter overload and it should start
Hi, It is the compressor. The compressor is a pump inside the housing you see under the refrigerator. The pump sits on some springs inside this housing and one of the springs has gone bad. When the compressor shuts off, there is back pressure and the noise you hear is the pump hitting the housing because that sprig is broke. There is no fix other then replacing the compressor. It is very costly to replace. If this refrigerator is older, I would recommend you start looking for a new refrigerator. The noise could last a while but, it is a sign the refrigerator will not last much longer.
I hope this helps you understand what is happening.
How long a period of time have you noticed this noise? If it just started and the refrigerator just stopped it could have entered its defrost cycle. When the defrost heaters come on you may hear the heat causing some expansion. After a few minutes(18-22) the defrost cycle ends and the refrigerator will restart.
