A:

The link Alina F sent gives you good information on your noise. Remove the rear cover from the compressor compartment and inspect the fan and motor. Be sure the condenser coil is clean both front and rear. Stopped up condenser coils cause higher than normal pressures and can cause the compressor to make noise. Be sure to disconnect the power to the refrigerator before removing any panels.

Q:

Why do I hear a clunk, when the refrigerator stops running?

A:

The rubber grommets # 4388295 are replaceable and are available at Sears PartsDirect . However, it's very unlikely they are the problem. This type of noise is, normally coming from inside the compressor and cannot be repaired. This is a normal noise that can occur at any time, with a compressor and does not mean anything is wrong or is going wrong. The reason, it's making this clunking noise, is because the balanced frame inside the compressor has gotten unbalanced. Now, when the compressor quits and it's usually a sudden stop, that shakes the compressor, it causes the mechanism inside to hit the frame, causing the clunk. It does not mean the compressor is going out, it can run for years like this. There is no definite reason the mechanism gets unbalanced but it can. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
