Question about Refrigerators
The clicking sound is the compressor overload tripping out and resetting. For whatever reason, bad capacitor, bad relay or locked up compressor....the compressor is not starting. Of course it could also be overheated due to a defective condensor fan motor or extremely blocked condensor coil.

Testimonial: "The Beer Meister rep told me the start relay failed and told me how to remove it. Took about five minutes and new part is in the mail. Hopefully, this resolves the problem for $13."

Hi, The clicking noise sound like a clock ticking? If so, it is probably you defrost timer. The defrost timer has a motor on it that sounds like a clock and has four wires that go to it..
This is what I would check first.

Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).

The frost on the tubing , indicates a " cap tube separation " . To repair this , you will need to strip the insulation from the tubing , install wire ties , tying the small cap tube , to the larger tube , about every 1 / 2 " , from the top to the bottom . Then use aluminum tape around the complete tie area , to hold in the heat , and wrap again , with several layers of duct tape , or foam wrap . If this frost gets to the compressor , this means liquid is getting inside the compressor , which kills the compressor . Hopefully , you have caught it in time . If you see a " green powder on the tubing , it's probably too late to repair .
