Question about Hotpoint HSS25GDMWW Side by Side Refrigerator
That clicking sound you hear is the board in its' death throws. It's gotta be replaced. Here's the part number... wr55x10656. You can pick one up if you have a local appliance parts retailer, or you can plug the part number into a search engine and go price shopping.
The board is a snap to replace. UNPLUG THE FRIDGE! Then remove the panel that covers the board. If you look closely, you'll see that the board is "snapped" into place by 4 plastic "stand-off's". There's a tiny little peg on each of these... simultaneously depress the the peg and pull on that section of the board to release it. Do all 4 and you'll have the board in hand. Now remove all the wire bundles from each of the points of connection. Don't worry, they only fit one way so connecting them to the new board is fool-proof.
All ya gotta do now is connect the wires to the new board, snap the board in place and button it up. (Don't forget to connect that "flying" green ground wire to the panel!) That's it! The board is done. I'd highly recommend plugging your fridge into a quality surge protector, though (to keep this from happening again). The one I install is the Surge Cube, by Belkin. I get 'em at Home Depot on the extension cord aisle. The reason I use this one is that when it "clamps" a V Spike, it automatically resets! This is important for a fridge wouldn't you agree?
Let me know how it goes, OK? And don't forget to rate this solution.
