Possible noisy compressor? I have a 1 year and 4 month old refrigerator that makes alot of noise when the compressor starts or stops. It sounds like something is very loose. It sounds like a vibration type of noise, but extremely loud. I can hear this when I am at the other end of my house. I explained to customer service the problem I was having and was told that I was past the 1 year warranty..any ideas?

The compressor and condensor fan all run at the same time. Make sure the fan isn't hitting something or the drip pan isn't rattling, etc. If you are positive the compressor is making the noise check the rubber isolation mounts to see if they are loose or damaged, etc. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/SS10-1.gif
