Cracking noise can be all or nothing. Depends on if you have pain.
Locks your knee when this happens ? I that case sign of loose body or mensical tear in the joint. If you are waiting for surgery you better tell your doc about this before surgery so he/she knows what to look for.

Is this cracking sound totally new or had it for a while ?
You say it feels like knee will lock, ever noticed if it has with your kneecap,patella to do ? If it feels like this will slipp ?
