Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks. So let’s get started!

Is the noise constant?

No. Yesterday probably every 10 15 minutes. I am not hearing it today but the refrigerator is now not cooling. Freezer items are defrosting.

Ok the pinging noise could be freon pumping through the tubing on the unit, that often causes some pinging style noises. Is the compressor running on the unit?
