What wrong with my frig?

The moderator at appliances said I should post on this site for better information.

I have a nine year old refrigerator that cools fine but when the compressor stops it bangs twice. any ideas as to what's wrong? And will the frig stop cooling?

Thanks guys for any help you can give me!!!

Sounds like the motor inside this "Shell" is hitting it when it shuts down.

The motor inside is mounted on some spring, and the bring has come undone or broke, and causing the compressor to "jump" around inside.

There is no harm done with this.. Just a noise you are going have to put up with till you retire the ref.

Like Jay said. Have some one turn the fridge off and you have your hand on the compressor You should feel the inside of it hit the outside case if its off the springs. If so hard to say just how long it will keep on running.
