    Question Whirlpool Refrigerator

    My fridge is a Whirlpool Princess Series Model ET18PKXP

    At the completion of nearly ever cycle, there is a loud "clang"/ "clunk" sound that you would think the motor just fell out and hit the floor.

    I would think it was serious but it has done this for at least three years with no noticable problem in cooling/freezing.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    A copy....

    **My fridge makes a bang noise when it shuts off: Sorry to say most times this is a faulty compressor. A compressor is a electric motor and pump mounted from springs inside the black dome, if one of these springs stretches or breaks the motor and pump hits the outer casing dome and bangs when it shuts off. Other things to check for, tubing touching one another, something fallen behind the fridge, condenser fan motor blade hitting something, defrost condensing pan out of place.**

    I would think it was serious but it has done this for at least three years with no noticable problem in cooling/freezing
    While the "bang" and "crash" will evenually damage the compressor, it often can run like this for some time before ever failing. As long as the noise doesn't drive you around the bend, I'd keep using the refrigerator until it quits.
