Refrigerator Clicking Noises
It is almost always the case that when
a refrigerator is making a clicking noise, the water inlet valve
opening is dispensing water to the ice maker. If the noise is
repetitive, it may seem alarming but it is likely nothing serious. It
may be that the fridge is starting to cool other compartments. Unless
the clicking is constant for many hours, it is nothing to worry
If it sounds like
something is rattling inside your fridge, you are likely dealing with
a waterline issue. Your waterline can rattle as water is pumped
through to the water dispenser or ice maker. If you hear this
rattling, it is likely that the waterline is not secure and is moving
around when it is used. It is not necessarily an issue that will
affect performance but it could eventually lead to a leak – plus
the noise can be aggravating.

Dripping Noises Coming from Your Refrigerator
There are actually many issues that can
result in the sound that your refrigerator is dripping. In most
cases, it is not an issue but you should know what to listen for. If
it is “normal,” then the dripping noise will come from outside of
the fridge after the compressor has turned off, or it will come from
the freezer compartment when water seem into the ice maker.
The dripping noises that should concern
you are those that happen inside the compartment of the fridge. This
can indicate a leak within the defrost system. Ideally, your defrost
system handles any melting frost by whisking it away. If it is making
noise, then there is a good chance something has gone wrong.
