Question and Answers


bc21vw knocking noise and its 12 yr old should i get it maintenance


Thank you for your question on the Amana bottom mount refrigerator.

If the noise is happening when the refrigerator shuts off then it could be the compressor has an internal support spring that is weak hitting the dome of the compressor when it shuts off.

If that is the case and since it is out of the 5 year compressor warranty I would suggest one of two options.

You could have the compressor replaced for about $500.00 or you could live with the knocking sound if it only happens when the unit shuts off.

The last option is to call Sears for service and ask for a prepaid $252.00 service call for a Service Smart service agreement. If you call 1-800-4my-home the technical specialist can give you the details of the service we offer on repairs.

I have had one of our refrigerators doing this for about 6 years but it cools fine.

If this is not the problem you are having then please give me a little more detail of the knocking sound you are hearing and we can continue to troubleshoot.
