    Default 'Soft tapping' sound Blomberg BRFB0900: 24 Inch Built-in Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator

    Model Number: BRFB0900
    Brand: -major brand-
    Age: 1-5 years

    Our Blomberg built-in bottom-freezer refrigerator has suddenly developed a 'tapping' sound (not terribly loud but bothersome nonetheless) ostensibly coming from the bottom of the appliance. The appliance works perfectly. The tap frequency is about a couple every second. It continues for 10-15 minutes, every 30 minutes, and goes on all day long--but I can't say the timing is consistently that way. It's more prominent on hot days (80F+). Virtually disappears on cooler days (75F-). In my opinion, the sound does not resemble a faulty relay...specially with it coming and going with temperatures. But what do I know!

    I have difficulty triggering it by leaving either fridge or freezer door open. I'm also not sure if it associated with when the compressor kicks in...I really can't tell.

    Any hypotheses on what might be the cause is very welcome!

    More than we do for sure! Bloomberg is a manufacturer in Germany that's trying to break into the US market. I believe they are sold as designer high end appliances that are in harmony with you and nature. (whatever that mean). They compete with Gaggenau Viking and others. The problem is, there's not enough of them out there. They're more common on the east coast and the only companies that work on them are usually the companies that sell them and do their warranty/service work. That's because they are the only ones that can get any parts or service information. I've never seen one. Same thing with Miele' appliances. I've seen a Miele refrigerator at a trade show in 2008. Since then I've never worked on one and I don't know anybody that has one. I wish I could help you more, sorry.
