Noise from inside the K-r ..

I seem to remember a previous post about someone experiencing a noise from inside the K-r. I can not find the original thread/post for the life of me. It went thus. On handling my K-r and moving it around I can hear a noise from the inside, as though something was loose and rattling.

I recall a reply as follows. This is normal. I cannot recall the rest of the answer. Can anyone enlighten me as to what the 'loose' noise is and what is normal about it, please.

Yup, it's normal. You can hear the sensor moving around on the SR rails when the system is off.

Thanks Adam. A thousand apologies Philoslothical, I never thought about looking there. Thanks for showing me the light. I promise to try to improve.

LOL, I didn't mean anything by it, just linking you to the thread. It's a really common question.

Philoslothical, I realise that my friend. However, I should warn you that in all of my seventy years, I have yet to ask or say anything that might be construed as being sensible. I don't intend to start now.
