The freezer control will normally make a ticking noise when starting and stopping the compressor. If it is clicking on and off in abnormally short intervals, you could have a component failure that needs a technician's attention.
The overload on the compressor will also make a clicking noise when it trips. If this overload is tripping, the refrigerator and freezer will normally not be cooling properly. This lack of cooling may take several days to appear.
You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.
I seen this problem before this fridge is different from others because has tow evaporators
Must likely your defrost heating element on the fridge side burn out and is letting ice to build up on till touch the fan blade and start making that sound now
The problem is than the defrost heater element is build on the evaporator
So the options are discharge the system and emplace the evaporator or what I do is
Carefully cut of the old heating element install a generic one and a defrost thermostat and a mechanical defrost timer (8-10 hours) drill a hole to the back of the fridge and run a line from the back and the timer next to the control boar tapping the main power lines
Now unless you are familiar whit electrical wiring and the defrost system of older fridges I don?t recommend to tray.
Even must technicians would not dare do make modifications to a existing system.
If you can?t do some thing like this what a recommend is turn the ?POWER COLD? off and see if gets any better .
i don't know jennair specifically being from england. however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed
If the noise from the compressor sounds like a humming followed by a click, the compressor is "short cycling". Could be either the compressor relay or the compressor itself is bad. Not sure on the hissing noise. Could be just a loose panel that needs to be tightened or adjusted.
