Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators
Making a loud noise
You don't say from what part and what it sounds like.
If it's a cracking noise, I had the problem in a similar fridge - the repair person said the noise was most likely the sound of ice build up being removed during defrost cycle and not to worry. Suggest you check the freezer temperature is not too cold and building up excess ice.

Check in your owners manual for a "noise" section to see if you can identify the source. Refers make lots of unusual noises so it helps to understand if they are normal or not. Over cold in the fridge may be due to the air damper system being stuck open or food placed too close to the air duct outlet. Frost in the freezer can be due to moisture getting inside from a bad door seal, etc.

It could be the thermostat. Before getting into that you should check a few other things. Check and make sure the condenser on the unit is clean and has free air around it. On some models the outer skin of the refrigerator or freezer acts as the surface for transferring the heat from inside to the outside air. These should be kept free of those stick um objects and the top is no storage area. On a frost free unit make sure it is frost free. Check the back wall for frost . If there is frost on the back wall the defrost system is not functioning properly. Check the temperature. Depending on what you are storing determines what temperature is necessary.

My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!
