Fridge. comp. clunks when it shuts off.

5 posts in this topic

Every time the compressor shuts off on my fridge it makes a loud clunk. It seems louder than it used to be.

Any ideas.

How old is the fridge?

OK, ILL go out on the limb. Seances you didn't ask how to fix it.

The motor is suspended in the compressor housing by springs.

You have a broken spring. If this is the case there is nothing you can do about it.

Save your dimes you are going to need a new frig. I should say, it may run a long

time like that though. IM sure someone will come in and say you could change

out the compressor, which you could. But with all the metal shaving/contamination

in the systems best to buy a frig with a new warranty.

you may be able to replace the comp but the cost is comporable to buying a new fridge. keep an ear out for the comp going completely because odds are it will go when you are away and the food inside goes bad.

Just like the other guys mentioned, it's the mounts in the compressor. Just keep and eye on it, could last a week or years, no way to tell. Not worth replacing compressor unless it was new enough (>5years usually) that you could have it done under warranty. Otherwise, going to just have to live with it. It is very common problem.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
