Why does the compressor on my Kenmore refrigerator rattle when turning off?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model number 106.67297790. The compressor began making a rattling noise when turning off. I checked the rubber mounting grommets & they are not loose. If I shake the compressor housing (shell), something inside knocks against the housing. This makes the same noise I am hearing when the compressor turns off. It is 8 years old & this just started a couple of weeks ago. Does the housing open? Maybe there is something I can tighten in there. I hate to order a whole new motor/compressor assembly. The refrigerator still works fine.
