Clicking noise

Yes, there are a couple of relays inside fridges. Your fridge should come with a schematic drawing of the circuitry, usually in a bag attached to the back of the fridge. They are cheap to replace, but sometimes hard to reach.

Clicking sound coming from the back

The board on the back wall behind the metal plate has gone bad. wr55X10942 is the part number I believe. You can try unplugging unit for about 30 minutes and then plug back in but sounds as if the board has gone bad on you.

Clicking from the back, no water and not cooling or freezing.

Does the clicking noise happen every 30 seconds to 1 minute? If so, the klixon thermal current breaker could be cycling due to a current overload in the compressor circuit. A quick test to see if it is the klixon follows:
Open the refrigerator door and observe the interior light while the clicking is occuring. Observe two complete clicking cycles. Does the bulb dim or flicker real low as if someone flipped the switch off and back on real fast 1 time for each clicking noise you hear? If so, your problem is probably related to what I've outlined above regarding the compressor circuit and it's related components.

Compact refrigerator stopped cooling. If you turn the thermostat on the light flickers and makes a clicking sound. If you turn the refrigerator off the light stays on. In the back you can hear it ticking...

The clicking sounds like the compressor is trying to start. If the condenser fan running? If it is then you need to check the relay of the compressor. It could be a bad compressor.

Continuous clicking sound and light flickers with each click

Replace the main board (mother board) WR55X10656 behind the panel on the back side of the refrigerator.
