I have a 2 year old Kenmore (model 970-678722) refrigerator with an odd
problem. When I close the door, often I hear a rattling sound. It
starts louder and slowly
subsides...lasts up to 20 seconds. Seems to occur more at night for
some reason, possibly when the house is warmer?
I have observed the sound when simply pulling on the door, so it's
related to the change in air pressure. Even with the fridge unplugged,
the sound persists, although it seems that after a few attempts it no
longer occurs when unplugged.
I am stumped. The sound originates from the bottom right of the
fridge. I've leveled and raised the front as per the manual, and
vaccumed everything to no avail. The base warrantee is up, but the
compressor and sealed unit are still covered. Would love to know what
I'm getting into before calling for service.
