Searched, but couldn't find much of anything.

I have a 5 year old norcold 60. It's an awesome unit but it's got a very noticeable thumping/rattling noise coming from the compressor when I hit any amount of unsmooth road. It almost seems like the piston is hitting the top of the compressor, internally.

Any thoughts on a fix for this or is a new compressor in order?
Confirmed the knocking sound is coming from the compressor when the fridge gets jolted ever so slightly, like something inside is shot.

Any thoughts on where to get a replacement compressor?

Pm sent.

Here are pix too



Finally got the cost for a new "cooling unit", which includes the noisy compressor. Sadly, the cost is nearly that of the whole fridge itself.

If anyone knows of a good place to find parts, feel free to chime in. Any help would be appreciated.
