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

Mine does it too. I know what it is because I repair them for a living. That is the sound of ice expanding as the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost on the evaporator. The next ime you hear it make a note of the time. Every 8 to 10 hours it will go into defrost mode. The ice box will also quit working for 21 minutes.

8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

With sounds like that I would use caution if installing a light bulb there. The sound and description sounds like a short circuit. Did this happen recently? Could you get me the complete model number, for example GS6SHEXN
Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze
