I have a GE stainless steel French door refrigerator model PFSS5NJWSS. It is less than 6 months old. The water and ice maker are not connected.

You did not mention any cooling problems in the refrigerator or freezer. If you have no cooling problems, then the popping sounds could be normal operating noises. This model will make some cracking or popping noises at times when:

The defrost timer snaps into or out of the defrost cycle

The freezer control starts or stops the compressor

The evaporator cooling coils expand or contract during the automatic defrost cycle

Condensation drips down onto the defrost heater during the automatic defrost cycle

If you hear a different type of popping noise or have cooling problems in the refrigerator or freezer, resubmit your question with additional details for more help with this problem.
