Clicking from main board of our refrigerator

We lost power during the hurricane, and when power came back on refrigerator didn't want to. freezer/fridge temp lights flash 222/555 and with each flash (every 2 secs) there is a clicking coming from the main board...not the compressor. am i looking at ordering a new main board or something else? thanks!!

SOURCE: relay clicking, not cooling either side

First of all Give me model# and Serial#.
you will most likely have to replace main control board and evaporator fan motor. They have had a service bulletin out on this problem.

SOURCE: GE Fridge, Compressor not getting power from mother board

I asked that because in most cases, when it is a problem in a motherboard, it is likely a power surge or lightening. I can also tell you that when it comes to mother boards and component level, likelihood, it isn't transistors or anything unless it smells or looks burned. Most shops would just replace the motherboard and ship it as repaired becaue the cost of the IC isn't worth the possibility of something in another IC on the same board knocking iit out again. Short of plug and play, you have no real way of proving this board good/bad. You might try EBAY with your model number to see if you get lucky. I just got rid of an electronic stove because the control board went bad. New board was $150 with a possibility of it going out in 6 months. As I am not made of money, I now have a gas stove. I you could, please rate this as a fixya as I am just being honest and saving you time and aggrivation. Good luck

SOURCE: Clicking noise coming from whirlpool refrigerator

The clicking sound is a relay called PTC relay. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

SOURCE: clicking noise coming from refrigerator

If the "clicking" noise is from a relay on the board or compressor, it's likely th compressor would be cycling on and off.

It could be a fan blade (evaporator or condenser) hitting something. Both fans only run when the compressor is on. This should be addressed ASAP as it could be a wire it's rubbing on.

Finally, the noise could be caused by the refrigerant within the sealed refrigeration system. This noise is more of a nuisance rather than a mechanical failure.

How do I find the fuse panel on LG model LSC269055b refrigerator


I think your model number is actually LSC26905SB
There isn't a fuse panel, per se. If I remember your model correctly, the main board is on the back, so pull your refrigerator out, unplug it, and take off the access cover located about halfway up your refrigerator's back. Look at the fuses on the main board. There is a 20 amp fuse that blows easily (the newer boards have a slower blowing fuse in them, now). Temporarily jumper the 20 amp fuse and then plug your refrigerator back in. If you hear relays clicking and such, that's good. The compressor should start up shortly afterwards and all the lights should be on in your refrigerator.

After you have verified operation, go to Radio Shack, or somewhere similar and get yourself a 20 amp slo-blo (slow blowing) fuse and solder it on top of the old fuse on your main board.

Remember to always unplug your refrigerator when dealing with the main board and power circuits.

Good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

Freezer too warm


First off, how old is the unit? Without knowing, my advice, and what has worked many times, is to unplug the unit, and turn it upside down. Thats right. Upside down. May take a couple or few people, depending on the weight. What this does, is to have the refrigerant begin running back to the top of the unit. Sometimes it settles in the bottom, and has to have extra help to start moving properly again. If, after about 6 to 24 hours it doesn't seem to have helped, it could be that you have lost the fluid, but that doesn't seem very likely. If you had, it would run consistently at the same warm temperature. If it helps, you may want to repeat the procedure to insure that it is completely free flowing. Cheap fix, if it fixes things. Good luck.

Lost power due the storm' when power was restored micro. never came back on


Possible that during the power outage there was fault in the mains supply and with the oven being plugged on it is possible that the power supply or the main board is damaged.
Unless you are able the top cover it is difficult to confirm if this can be silly fault like a fuse blown which is on the mains circuit or a Step down transformer or the processor board.
