The evaporator fan, inside the freezer will sometimes come in contact with ice and make this noise.
If the overload on the compressor is tripping it will make a clicking sound.

Fridge light doesn't work/makes ticking noise


Let the refrigerator cool for awhile without opening the door. 39 minutes should do. Then check to see if the bulb is warm or hot. If it is the door switch is bad and the light is staying on which will make the plastic expand and cracklel or tick. Hope this helps.

Magic chef 10 cu fridge makes ticking noise but works fine


Some times refrigerators make a noise that sounds like a tick. It could be caused from the refrigerant flowing through the lines. This usually happens when the refrigerator first starts up and goes away after a few minutes. the other possibility is a fan motor blade taping the shroud from time to time. The refrigerant issue is not something that can be fixed. The fan blade issue could be fixed by moving the fan blade back or froward on the shaft a slight amount. If you have a 10 cu ft refrigerator it may not have a fan.

Noise from the fridge


Sounds like the compressor is overheating.

Make sure the condensor fan is running.

This will be the fan motor running verry close to the compressor. located in the rear of the machine.

Make sure you unplug machine, remove back panal, look for fan, Unless there is an obstruction, Don't touch it, just plug machine back in to see if it starts on its own. if this fan is not working and the compressor is on then the fan motor will need to be replaced.

Ticking noise


HI, This is the result of a damaged Power control board. This board is not regulating the incoming current correctly. This board should be replaced, immediately. This will cause the in-house circuit breaker to blow. The board is located behind a access panel, on the rear of the unit. Have it replaced, soon.

It may be mounted on the compressor platform, as well.

Fan started making noise


I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

We have a 4 year old GE fridge that is ticking like a clock but louder. the model number is GBS20HBSBWW


If the inside fan does not come one, suggestions are "bad mother board", possibly a free replacement from GE, that otherwise is $300+.

There is fan in the freezer behind the metal cover. Try to stop the fan, and see if the the noise stops... If the noise stops then its possible that the fan is out of balance. If this is not the case then i would suspect that this is problem with the mainboard.

Fridge keeps ticking when not running???


Kevin, I'm going to give you a few scenerios to check out. The evaporator fan, inside the freezer will sometimes come in contact with ice and make this noise. Check your condensor fan, in back and make sure that is not hitting the shroud. If the overload on the compressor is tripping it will make a clicking sound, but it would be about every 4 to 5 minutes. If the unit goes into defrost, the evaportor coils tend to make a clicking sound. If you can be more specific as to where the noise is coming from, we might be able to help you better...Catriver...post back.
