Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the knocking sound. I can understand your concern about a noise coming from the refrigerator. Now, if the noise is occurring when the unit cuts off, the most likely cause will be the compressor. This is a normal noise that can occur at any time and there is no fix for it. A compressor can make this type of noise at any time. It doesn't mean it's bad or is going bad. This is actually a normal noise. It may never make this noise but usually at some point it will. What's happening is, the mechanism inside the compressor, has gotten out of balance. The compressor will shake, due to the sudden stop in pressure, when it quits and the mechanism is hitting the frame now, making the knocking noise. The compressor is mounted on rubber grommets because of this shaking motion. It doesn't mean anything is going bad but it should only do this when the compressor quits.

If it makes this noise (gurgling sound) while it�s running, it will be from the refrigerant. This is a normal noise associated with the 134A refrigerant now being used. Sometimes it can be muffled and maybe eliminated by adjusting the drier next to the compressor. Bending the drier in a 45 degree angle sometimes works but I strongly recommend having a technician do this because the line connected to the drier, can kink or break, if this is not done correctly. Another possibility is, if there is enough cap tube (the very small line) that is attached to one side of the drier, it can be clamped to the discharge line. The discharge line is the hot line coming off of the compressor. Again, this is a job, I recommend having a technician perform. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will assist you further.

Thank you. I don't think the refrigerator is making the sound when it is powering off. It is hard to say because the refrigerator runs quietly so I don't usually hear whether it is running before I hear the knocking. My guess is that the knocking is coming from the refrigerant. If it is the refrigerant, would it cause any long-term issues with refrigerator? Thanks.

Mike, I understand your concern. No this will not affect the system or cause an issue. It's just a noise that is common with many refrigerators now using the new refrigerant.
