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.

Freezer is not cold, defrosted everything,fans running,back sealed so cant get to any coils.making a clicking noise.flipped circuit breaker .never had prob before temp settings are on coldest settings ...


Is the clicking noise coming from the back side bottom ofthe fridge? If so its the compressor trying to kick in. Usually this is a death nail for a fridge. You say the fan is running is the fan inside the fridge fzr running and is there a fan under the backside of the fridge running? let me know and I will be glad to help more. Hope your day gets better

Fridge noise/


You need to get a repair man to your house ASAP. This noise you are hearing is the compressor start relay and the click sound is the overload protector heating up and shutting it off. You may have a defective relay, or possibly a bad compressor. The relay and overload are attatched to the compressor in the back of the fridge.
Check your owner's manual to see what kind of a warranty you have on the "sealed system" Hopefully the parts at least will be covered should you need a new compressor.
Sometimes if the compressor is bad on these models you can let it sit un plugged for a couple hours and try to re-start it.
Good luck to you!!

Constant clicking noise with no cold air.


You have a bad main control board . This is located behind the refrig , behind an 8" X 10 " panel . Either the compressor module , or fan module , is burnt out . Replace this electronic board , and I'm sure the problem will be solved .

This sounds like it's out of freon. Not just low but out. That clicking noise is a thermal overload shutting down the compressor. If you continue let it just click away it will burn this overload out and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the refrigerator just started doing this suddenly it could be that the compressor is locked up. If it has external capacitors either the start or run capacitor could be bad. If the capacitors are good then you could try a hard start kit to try to unlock the compressor.

Fridge keeps making "clicking" noise and will not get very cold


the clicking noise is probably the unit trying to start but it cant because its too overheated,try turning it off for about 30 minutes to cool the compressor down,then put the thermostat at 3 for the fridge and not the coldest for the freezer and leave it there for a few hours to stabalize the temperature and see what happens.

Clicking noise coming from refrigerator


If the "clicking" noise is from a relay on the board or compressor, it's likely th compressor would be cycling on and off.

It could be a fan blade (evaporator or condenser) hitting something. Both fans only run when the compressor is on. This should be addressed ASAP as it could be a wire it's rubbing on.

Finally, the noise could be caused by the refrigerant within the sealed refrigeration system. This noise is more of a nuisance rather than a mechanical failure.

if you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.

Fridge has stopped working/getting cold


check the relay, the clicking noise is your overload tripping out on overload, the run winding of the compressor are not coming on line, if your relay is good, the ohm out your compressor.
