GE PDS20SFSLSS fridge clicking every few seconds

Returned from vacation to find GE PDS20SFSLSS fridge making clicking noise from the main board. I unplugged it over night and it restarted okay only to resume clicking after about a day. Unplugged again for a few hours and restarted okay but closer look noticed the fan isn't running. Is the likely fault the fan or the main board?

yes the mother board is located under the plate in the back.. but when you replaced the relay did you put on a 3in1 relay or a manufactured relay?

SOURCE: GE MODEL GSH25JSRF-SS PROBLEM HELP PLEASE

I had the same problem back in March. First the water and ice dispensers stopped working, then the clicking started and the compressor wouldn't turn on. I replaced the circuit board and everything started working again, until today. This is a very common problem with the circuit board on these refrigerators. Do a search for "GE circuit board" and you'll see what I mean. GE issued a service bulletin to its technicians that this service should be provided free of charge, and anyone who already paid to have the circuit board replaced will be reimbursed. I wish I would've known about it 6 months ago. I will be calling GE Consumer Affairs on Monday to get this resolved.

SOURCE: Help w/ Refrigerator Compressor Overheating?

I had a similar problem yesterday (Maytag side by side unit 5 years old, however this apply to most brands). All operation seems normal other then that the refrigerator was not cooling, the air that was blowing inside the refrigerator was room temperature and not cold air. The compressor was also very hot to touch (could not touch it for more then 1-2 seconds) and didn't buzz or hum as in standard operation. I also heard few clicks from the compressor every time I plugged / unplugged the AC to the fridge. Replaced the overload/ relay device with a new one I got at a local appliance parts distributor ($30) and MAGIC. The unit went back to work as soon as I plugged the AC power. The relay/overload unit is on the side of the compressor and that?s where the electric wires are attached to. The unit turns the compressor on and off. The unit is attached to the compressor side with an "electric outlet" like three holes and three prongs. It might be held tight so you can pry gently (between the unit and the compressor body) with a screwdriver. Once pulled out, release the wires connectors that are attached to the relay/ overload unit. You might need to use pliers as they are tight fit. If unit smells like burnt or if you shake and hear rattle then it?s bad. Find a local appliance parts distributors and call to see if they have part for your model/ type. Remember to unplug AC before starting to work on the fridge and good luck.

SOURCE: GE refrigerator won't keep cool

check the voltage going into you fan w/ the old main board and also w/ the new board. You might be getting a low voltage w/ your new board or the fan you replaced is for a diferent voltage. Have you tried to put the old fan back w/ the new board??

LFC20770SW makes clock noise fridge not cooling


I have had a similar problem. In my fridge, i found 3 bad electrolictic capacitors in the main board. If you know how to dissolder, it is possible to replace them at low cost.
Get the refrigerator out of the power source and let it discharge. Find the main board casing and open it.
Check for stuffed capacitors. It is probably the ones that powers the relay. Or you can replace the whole board. There are videos on Youtube about it.
Good luck!

The fridge is making a constant clicking noice


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.
