Manage My Life

My refrigerator is periodically making a loud knocking noise and getting worse- what could be wrong?

My refrigerator is a Kenmore side by side, Model #253 56272403, with ice machine/water. The loud knocking noise sounds like it is coming from the right lower side and sounds like it's possibly against metal. Could this be a major problem needing service asap- I don't want to loose any food or end up with water everywhere. There are about 10 or less knocks at a time, several times a day now.

I can understand your concern. The information you have received is correct. This is a normal noise that compressors can make. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further. If you would like to have a technician check it, I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website:
