Unusual noises are often the first sign of an appliance needing attention. I can understand wanting to resolve this before it becomes a bigger problem. The model number provided did not access any information, but by changing one letter, I think we have the right one, FRT18KG3DW0 .

If the freezer is icing up, there may be a cracking sound when air enters the freezer section as the door is opened. This can be caused by air leaking inside the cabinet. Visually check the door hinges to make sure there is no misalignment of the door. Also check the gasket around the door for any cracks or gaps. If the gasket does need to be replaced, this is something a homeowner can often accomplish on their own. There are several normal type noises and some not normal that a homeowner may hear. Listen to the sounds here; Audio to determine if any of these match the noise you hear. The image below for your model also contains a picture with noises that may be heard from each part.

Clean the coils behind the refrigerator to make sure it is running efficiently. Often intermittent problems with proper cooling is caused by dirty coils. This article; How to clean your refrigerator coils can help organize that task.

Once these general areas are checked and eliminated, if the issues continue, a technician may be needed.

If the compressor is running but no cooling is taking place, it would lead to a seal system problem. It could be a restriction, low charge or the compressor may not be pumping. A technician would be required to check the sealed system. A Sears technician can be scheduled here; Sears Home Services .

I hope this information provides information that helps. If further assistance is needed, please reply with any additional detail. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
