The fridge is a "Fridgidaire Gallery" 18 cubic foot, freezer on top upright fridge. When the fidge door has been opened wheteher for a couple of seconds or a couple of minutes , it doesn't matter, it makes a run on "knocking" sound for about 30 seconds after the door has been reclosed.

Background, about a month ago, a technician replaced the evaporator and the suction line due to a leak. Since then both fridge and freezer are working fine except for the rapping noise above. Any ideas??? Thanks.

Not knowing for sure, it is possible it is the air pressure from closing the door causing the water in the defrost drain line gurgling inside of the tube.  This is a a known problem and there is some sort of solution for this but do not know what since we do not do Frigidaire. The freon flowing thru the sealed system can make some noises also but would not be just when the doors are closed only.  Might want to call the Frigidaire place who did the sealed system repair about this noise and if they have heard of this water in the drain tube problem and what is done to make this not as noticable.  Is also possible they left something loose inside of the freezer like the evaperator fan motor bracket.  You need to call the company who did the repairs a month ago and have them find the source of this sound.

That's good. I didn't know that the drain line could be influenced py pressure inside the fridge.

Thanks.

Sounds like the defrost drain noise. I do Frigidaire factory service, and I haven't heard of any fix. I wouldn't trust Frigidaire to come up with anything, their fix may do more harm than good.

My neighbor got one of these, and it makes the same sounds.

When you close the door, you compress the air in the frig. The defrost drain has a trap to keep warm air from going up the tube. So, you close the door, the air pushes some of the water out of the trap, and you get to hear the sounds.
