Question about GE GSH25JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
My Refrigerator is making a clicking noise that is comming from the small panel that is located in the rear. It sounds like there is a timebomb in my frige. Click click, Click click. I opened the panel and there is a computer motherboard in it. The refridgerator has also stopped cooling. All of the lights work though. Any help. Thanks.
I fixed my motherboard.
Board WKKT Model 0158-00-04
Board GEA Part 200D4854G013
I replaced both 47uF x 400V capacitors - one of them was bulged. The bad one was open, and the other still had it's nominal value.
I tryed to make the refrigerator work, to no avail.
After a careful inspection, i replaced both 470uF x 25V capacitor (c29 and c30, i guess - near the 7805 regulator). Both had around 0.5% of their original value, and i belive it was the source of the problem.
Everytime the processor tried to start the relay, the power level dropped and the motherboard "rebooted"... and thus the cycles and clicks from the relay.
The refrigerator got back to life!
There was a recall by GE on November, 2006.
Call GE at 18003861215, option 3. Mention the recall and maybe it's still valid a free replacement.

Sounds like a relay is chattering on the board. First thing would be to change that circuit board, it controls pretty much the whole unit. Make SURE the clicking is coming from the board and NOT the compressor though! See item 801 below http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/GE/00118404i08.gif
