I have a Frigidaire FFET1222QW which is making a tapping or knocking noise (a little faster than a heart beat) whenever the compressor is running.

Is the noise in the freezer area, or can you tell?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can't tell but I turned down the setting in the refrigerator side to 1 to isolate the freezer. The knocking noise has not changed.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Well, this type of noise is common and expected at the cooling coil in the freezer. The refrigerant changes state in that coil and the expansion and contraction causes that noise. See the attached page.
