Fridge. comp. clunks when it shuts off.


Recommended Posts

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.

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.
