    I think the clicking sound is the compressor shutting off. How old is the fridge? Has it ever been serviced?

Check your thermostat setting. the clicking sound is probably the compressor un-loading.

If you set the thermostat higher, the compressor will not turn off too soon.

Ge monogram not cooling properly


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

The unit will come on in house but fan is not on outside you can hear it clicking like its trying to and blowing warm air


Sounds like you need a new Run capacitor or hard start kit (includes the capacitor), but you should have it checked by tech

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working


coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

It sounds like the contacts of the contactor are burnt/pitted. When this occurs, it can allow enough current to operate the fan motor but not enough to operate the compressor.

Freazer works fridge warm


Hi Jen, I would suspect the thermostat. The fact that the fan is still coming on and off is because it is more than likely getting frozen or clogged with ice making it stop and in turn cooling stops. Yep I would start with changing the thermostat.

My Refrigerator and Freezer is warm


I just had a similar problem, and the bottoms of both sides were cold but the top shelves were warm. I found that the condenser fan, the fan right above the cooling coils was not working. This fan circulates the cold air and if it's not working it can't move the cold air to the top or over to the refrigerator side. Open the freezer door and press the switch that tells the computer the door is closed (so the light goes out), if the fan doesn't come on shortly, or only sputters that could be the problem. You will need to take out the back cover over the coils, the ice maker tray and auger motor if you have one and some other parts. Play around with the plug where it goes into the side wall, if you can get the fan to come on and off, it's most likely a bad fan motor....about $55 to replace. As you take it apart, be sure to take some digital pics of the process so you can remember how it goes back together!
