Refrigerator make knocking

Let the person out of the frig, and he'll stop knocking in it.

Without more info, we can't help you much. Info like is it coming from the top or bottom of the frig. model number of the frig also helps.

Refrigerator make knocking

Move fridge out from wall..UNPLUG IT...check and clean any exposed coils and around compressor under bottom/back of fridge. Check compressor to see if mounting brackets/springs all firmly in place. Plug fridge back in and observe operation. If still knocking..likely that the compressor is going bad due to worn crank shaft/pistons. Likely time to replace.

OR could be just some toy stuck under compressor?
