I have a ~15 year old GE Profile side-by-side refrigerator that has started having a loud bang at the end of its cooling cycle. Sounds like a big valve closing or something hitting something else. Performance seems OK and freezer temp stays around -10F.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Sounds like an internal compressor mounting spring broken. Only way to repair is to replace compressor. Could last a long time this way if you can put up with the annoying noise, but then again, it could completely fail tomorrow. No way of knowing how long it will continue to work.

Tell-tale sign of Death of your Ge's compressor

Brings back bad memories
Anyhow, it could last a while as per sensei Budget, but the sound undoubtedly will get worse over time.
