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!

    No ice on fan but thanks for reply

  • mccutcheon Nov 01, 2007

    Now I have found that I can lift the cover over the freezer fan and manually start the fan, but this can't be safe for a girl!

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

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
also are the coils clean?

There are several fans on your unit one on the top with the compressors, one inside the freezer, and one at the bottom. If you open the freezer and the noise gets louder or stops then you know it is the evaperater fan. Sometimes the bearings start to go and they make louder noise. Also check on the back wall for frost you could have a frosting problem and the fan blade is hitting on the ice

The freezer acts as if it is going to start, but then it doesn't. the fan inside is running, but the temp is up to over 40 degrees


When a compressor is burned out it will try to start and then quickly overheat and kick out on the safety. Listen closely to the fans when the compressor tries to start. A bad compressor will pull so many amps that the fans will actually slow down until you hear the click, then the fans will pick up speed again. If this is the case you will need a replacement compressor. Let me know how long it takes to click out when it tries to start.

check that compressor is running. if your hearing a hum and then click you probably have a faulty compressor relay. most times you can pull it off and shake it and you will hear little bits rattle, well it should actually make no sound. but it could still be bad if compressor fails to run. compressor may or may not be warm.
