Hi my name is Sean, No you should not be concerned, but should try to not shake the refrigerator too much, the sound your hearing is the piston in the compressor hitting the side of the compressor housing. Its attached to springs inside and so when the refrigerator is moved it will move back and forth and hit the side of the compressor. Just make sure you dont move it while the compressor is running could damage the piston.

Putting some spin on your ball will add a great element to the way you play the game. I have found you a great instructional video that will hopefully better teach you how to spin the ball. Good luck!

How should I be standing when playing ping pong? What do I do with my body?

A good ping pong stance consists of a slight crouch forward and placing your feet shoulder-width apart. Make sure that your knees are bent. Most of your weight should be on the balls of your feet, allowing you to move with speed. Your upper arm should be close (not flush) to your body and your forearm and racket should point forward. In reference to the table, you should be standing so that the tip of your paddle barely touches the edge of the table.

Refrigerator making noise like ball bouncing

No. This is not a great deal. Your compressor is switching off at times which makes the sound, but it is a power saving technique adopted by the manufacturer. It is certainly not a problem.

Ice maker does not make ice

Hello, Ice makers are very simple machines and only have 2 components. The first is the ice maker located inside the freezer, The second is the dual valve located behind the refridgerator behind the panel at the rear. One valve is for the ice maker, the other is for the water dispenser. When one of these components go bad the result is no ice. There is a very simple way for the layman to figure out where your problem lay. If you have a ping pong ball or shot glass place it on the icemaker and wait 12 hours, if the ping pong ball falls into the ice try the ice maker is good and you need to replace the inlet valve...if the ping pong ball stays in place it means the ice maker is bad and you should replace this. If you have any other questions regarding this problem please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike
