Constant clicking from freezer fan that won't start

Constant clicking sound from fan in freezer and the fan will not completely start.  Never actually hear the compressor start either.  There is also a green wire behind the plastic light cover in the freezer that has a metal clip but nowhere to connect it to?  Has done this several days and sometimes is able to start.  Have unplugged several times but problem persists.  Looked at computer board but afraid to touch it!

Re: Constant clicking from freezer fan that won't start

Could be the defrost cycle is not running properly and the fan has ice on it.

It is still cooling but was making a loud sound unplugged it over night now it seems to be working again, what made sound and will it come back

Good day,
Motors make noise. There are three motors. One behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Another in the back rear of the machine, called a condenser cooling, fan motor, and lastley, the compresssor itself which is locacated in he bottom rear as well.
One reason could be ice building up around the freezer fan motor and hitting the blades of the fan.
If it is a Whirlpool/Kenmore make then that fan motor could be going bad.
But without a make and complete model number that's all the info I can provide.
As well, we'll need to know how long it takes to re-appear, and if it is constant or intermitent noise problem.

Beeping sound coming from control panel model#10656562400

Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause which can't be lubricated or repair instead required to be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Maytag refrigerator clicking

it sounds like a bad: 
  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
