I have a GE refrigerator (model #GSL22JFREBS) and it is making a constant clicking noise and the entire refrigerator is no longer working. Please let me know what you think the problem might be? Is it the...


The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Refrigerator stopped working nothing runs,all lights on, periodically a clicking sound


sounds to me like you have a bad relay on your main control board. It will be located on the back wall of the unit or down by the compressor on older models. The other possible clicking noise would be your starting components on the compressor. You will have to determine where the clicking is coming from and I would start by replacing either the board or the starting components. You could also do a visual inspection on the board for burn spots. Hope this helps. MJ

Clicking noise in the circuit board and everything in the freezer is thawed


Hi. this will be a failed relay on that circuit board. This is called the PCB(main unit power control board). This board controls the compressor relay functions, and the compressor power current, as well. The evaporator fan, and condenser fan, receives their respective current from this power control board, also. When a circuit board of this nature begins to malfunction, it will cause the unit to not cool properly, due to limited, or no fan actions, or a failed compressor cycle. I would recommend to replace this damaged control board, asap.

Refrigerator makes a humming noise, compressor does not kick in. I believe it may be the relay


You need to replace the overload /relay w/capacitor . Pt # 67005560 . This part runs about $30.00 , and easily replaceable . Just plugs onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires pluged onto it .

GSS201EPH WW Refrigerator does not run.


These symptoms indicate that the main control board is bad . The compressor relay ( one of the black boxes ) is bad . Have to replace the complete board . Without the model number , can't give you the part number . Take the model number with you when you go to get the part ( or order the part ).

Whirlpool refrigerator model# ed5fhexlq was working fine. The electric was out for a few hours the other night and now it is not getting cold. The fan is running and the lights come on, but I don't think...


I am "relaying"(pun intended) this posting as it sounds like something that could have happened to your unit.



There is a relay called PTC relay. It is located on the compressor. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Sometimes this relay starts a noise like clicking off and on to give you a warning. sometimes they just go out.

Side by side stopped working but clicling noises every second two.


Read, this model posted has a main board in back that controls the refer. Your problem sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor but you need to do a test to verify. On the main board in back there is a blue harness, 3 pronged, that is marked line, defr and comp. Lower left hand corner. You need to get a jumper wire with alligator clips and with the plug out, jump line to comp. Now plug it back in, this will send 120V directly to the compressor. See if it starts. If not and it does it clicking thing, chances are it's the overload and relay, or the compressor itself. You have five years warranty on the compresser. If it starts, it's the board it's the board giving you the problem. This of course is for the GSH model posted...Catriver..post back.
