Had the same problem on my GE bottom freezer fridge. It finnaly died a few days ago. The clicking came from a relay on the main circuit board under a access cover on the back of the fridge. Ordered a new circuit card from GE ($157.50 + ship/handeling), replaced it, and the fridge works great. I have an electronics background but if you take your time and are safe, I think anybody would be able to change it.

If Fridge working fine now, the problem may be is Hydro Grid.

When the fridge just start, the compressor is running with high pressure of Freon. If Hydro power has voltage surge or power Off/On ( suddenly ), the compressor should be stuck, the overheat protection switch will actived, than fridge will stop working.

The noice of "click" - properly is overheat switch auto-reset.

Fridge working but not cooling.


The white component you see , is the problem . That is the overload/relay . These short due to power surges , dirty coils in the front bottom of refrig , or just by age . They short , to save the compressor , when one of these happens . The part number you need is # 8201786 . This part just prys off (maybe one wire clip ) , easily replaceable with instructions included with the part .

The evaporator fan, inside the freezer will sometimes come in contact with ice and make this noise.
If the overload on the compressor is tripping it will make a clicking sound.

Help -Motorola DSR922 Clicking After Power Goes On And Off


I had same problem - found clicking stopped when I disconnected the Ku LNB - probably shorted. But, I have other problems in that both receiver and unit i.d. numbers have changed. So far, the only option seems to be to send it back to ATS (828 465 9968) for repair. I also had unit on UPS power.

Disconnect the power cord (or switched power off) and wait an hour or two until compressor has cooled. When you now switch the power on, the clicking is heard only once and compressor starts (weak noice and vibration noticed). When compressor gets warmed, the compressor will stop and clicking starts again (clicking comes from electric circuits when compressor is switched off and on repeatedly, but it will not start because it has stucked - this is typical fault in old compressors said maintenance expert to me). Buy a new fridge.

Hotpoint refrigerator hss25gfpj ww, clicking constantly, not cooling!!!


Recently had a friend with the same problem. Found that one of the power supplies on the board had a blown capacitor. This allowed the relay on the board to energize but not enough voltage was being sent to hole the relay closed. Basically a blown board was the problem. I found the wiring diagram very informative, it was hidden behind the temprature potentiometers.
