Question about GE Monogram ZDWC240NBS Stainless Steel Wine Cooler
My wine cooler stopped cooling. It still runs but there's a 'clicking' that sounds as if something is trying to turn on like the compressor, but it doesn't stay on. Not sure what's going on.
It could be the relay. take off the panel so you can access the compressor. unplug the unit for about a minute then plug back in. Is the click coming from the compressor? Remove the relay from the compressor. You will want to ohm out the compressor to make sure it is OK. Check the windings to ground to see if it is grounded. If not i would recommend a three in one relay. They are cheap and come in various sizes depending on the size of compressor.

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it’s bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it’s bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it’s ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it don’t cost much in most cases (less than $25). If you replace it and it doesn’t work then the compressor is bad and you’ll need you call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor Hot
Sounds like the compressor starting relay. This should be available from from most appliance parts retailers that carry refrigeration parts. It is probably a plug-in relay which is easy to replace. PULL THE PLUG UNTIL YOU GET IT! Constant cycling on the thermal protector will damage the unit.
