Question about GE GBS22HCR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The refrig and freezer are cold, but the box on the back has a loud continuous click and the inside lights blink with each click...the clicking only lasted a few minutes at first, now it clicks for hours.
GE apparently has the same issue with power supply capacitors that plagues the computer industry. I have fixed 2 GE refrigerators motherboards with the clicking relay issue in the last year. Look for the bulging/leaking capacitors by a small transformer in the power supply section of the motherboard. These caps were labeled C29 and C30 and are 470 UF 25v electrolytic radial lead caps. Can be purchased a radio shack for about 2 bucks. These caps are easy to replace with simple soldering skills. My fridge is about 3 years old.
