Resolved Question:

Kenmore refrigerator with top freezer, no ice maker, model 106.62862100 - When it cycles on there is a loud rattling noise. It was purchased 5/28/02. Do I repair or replace? What do you think the estimated cost would be? Thanks, Todd

The most probable cause is that the coils in the back of the fridge is dirty or the fan back there is not running, the other cause is that a spring inside the compressor has broke if this is the cause the compressor will need to be replaced at a cost of over $500, so open up the back of the fridge and look at the coils back there and clean them and if the fan is not running replace that.
