My Kitchen Aid Refer make a series of thumping noises then

Resolved Question:

My Kitchen Aid Refer make a series of thumping noises then stops. It happens about every 15 minutes and lasts for about 30 seeconds. The temperature is fine and I really have no other issues except the noise. What do you think is causing the thumping? It has an icemaker but I never hooked it up!
