why is my refrigerator making a loud banging noise when the compressor turns off?

In my 9 year old freezer top refrigerator model no 106.70204990, every time the compressor turns off, a loud bang occurs. And this happens every 12 minutes. The compressor is on for 6 minutes then off for 6 minutes. Is this too frequent? Lately (the past 3 hrs) he compressor is vibrating when it starts. What is the problem and is it time for a new refrigerator.
