There are a couple of reasons it could be. If the freezer has a fan unit the fan may need tightening or the bearing is shot, or the compressor is low on gas and making the unit to work harder, hence the seemingly louder noise.

Here we go, I have a GE side by side about 6 years old... Started with the icemaker not dispensing ice consistently... then the ice stopped all together (even though the bin was full and not froze solid)....


The clicking you are hearing is the relay unit. Now it is for sure that the compressor is not working as the relay keep s tripping off.
So first of all to clear this doubt, let us checck the relay unit which is clicking. remove and check. most of the time the relays need to be replaced as a poor contact will not deliver good voltage to the compressor and it will shut off. So check this out.
One the compressor works and you notice there is cooling the sytem seems ok except that you must check if the thermostat, the auto defrost cut off timer works.
If after the compressor works the cooling is not good then you can decide on a replacement than to spend for expensive repairs

Fridge running hot!


One you can to try and extend the life of the fridge is to vacuum off the compressor and coils. They can be located either behind the toe grill on the bottom front or through an opening on the back of the fridge. It is natural for a fridge to blow warm air.

Fridge freezer shorting out electrics


The cause of this situation could simply be an overloaded circuit. Homes are built with dedicated circuit for fridge only now because of this. If you notice power outage in other rooms or other appliances in kitchen then the circuit affected,I.E. other outlets affected need the load lightened. If it is a dedicated circuit then could be faulty breaker or possibly altered wiring could be cause.These have to be ruled out before you will know for sure. If it isn,t dedicated outlet for fridge only, just plugging in a light could overload loaded circuit.

Whirlpool ET1FTKXK Fridge not working


The reason you had water dripping from the top is the frig goes into a defrost cycle every 12 hours or so and melts the ice build up. Now your drain line for the water to go down to bottom of frig is plugged more then likely with ice. Take the cover off back of freezer and get some salt table salt be good. And put it in the drain hole located roughly in the center of freezer cabinet. That will take care of the drain quick. Now notice to see if the fan on the inside of freezer is on. My hunch is that it is not turning. You can replace the little fan motor make sure you don't damage the fan blades you will re-use them. Be sure compressor is on cause the fan only works when compressor is on. Let me know what you find out.

Power on but fridge/freezer not working (only lights)


Yes, boards may need replacing, but not at the expense of the door, apparantly your "engineer" would rather work on older models that may require a hammer. Best advice would be given knowing the make and model number of your unit. A professional should be able to diagnose the board processes as well as the compressor in a short amount of time. Check the defrost heater (after pwr is restored to unit) for the freezer side (placement depending upon model) for continuity (basically a heating element for the evaporator coils - which will freeze without defrost). Proper defrost will help lessen the load on the compressor. Check the overload relay on the compressor itself for failure and replacement of relay. Have the unit defrosted, svc defrost htr, thermostats/thermolinks , compressor, before checking computer board operations.

Freezer problems


remove back panel of freezer. check if there is excessive ice build-up preventing air flow. if there is, then defrost carefully with a hairdryer (with appliance switched off) if no ice or frosting on pipework, check if compressor is running. if it is or hot to the touch or clicking, then you have a compressor fault and replacement is not diy. if compressor not running, then probably module fault
