Re: Hotpoint refrigerator hss25gfpj ww, clicking...

Recently had a friend with the same problem. Found that one of the power supplies on the board had a blown capacitor. This allowed the relay on the board to energize but not enough voltage was being sent to hole the relay closed. Basically a blown board was the problem. I found the wiring diagram very informative, it was hidden behind the temprature potentiometers.

It could be a bad relay or start device on the compressor.  Pull the fridge out and see if that is where the clicking is coming from.  If this unit has a control board the clicking could be coming from one of the relays on the board.  In this case the board would need to be replaced.  Let me know what you find.  If you need more help I will need the entire model # off of the sticker inside the fridge.

Hotpoint Refrigerator constantly runs and doesn't shut off normally.

Sounds like the thermostat is not working that is what tells the compressor it is cold enough shut off.

Very common. Most likely you need a main control board, located in the back of the fridge.

Noise at the top, constant

Are you saying you get the noise even when the refrigerator is not cooling? If you get the noise only when the refrigerator "runs", it is the fan as you suggest.
