Question about Refrigerators
To start, have you had it less then a year if purchased new? If so, it's under warranty. Call the people you bought it from. More Info is required... are these clicks contstant like every second, once a minute .. random 2 times and hr or how often? First I'd suggest unplugging it or tripping the circuit breaker its on and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.. then power it back up. a reboot might be all it needs. the ice maker can make clicking sounds if it is full but the shutoff bar is stuck. try removing some of the ice cubes if that might be the problem there. sounds like something a bit more severe though if you have blank temp controls.. are they blank even after pushing the buttons? push the button to raise the temp about 5 times (5 degrees)... the display may be toast and you have the temp set below freezing. A manual can be had here https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/GFSL2KEXALS-GE-BOTTOM%20MOUNT%20REFRIGERATOR-manual
if you don't have one
there is a switch on the ice maker.. turn it off to see if the ice maker is the cause of the clicking. The compressor can make clicking noises too, but if that is the problem, then the whole fridge should become warm. add more info

the air damper is stuck open or tempature control is bad. look thru the vents(use a mirror) on the left rear(top side) of the fresh food compartment (right hand door) to see if the air damper is open/closed. i am sure it will be open since your freezing food in the ref section. if it is open ,watching with your mirror turn ref (fresh food) control off. the air dmper should close, if not damper could be stuck(ice build up,piece of foam,ect) if you can determine damper door is free, then best thing to do is replace controlassy.(120.00 or so) good luck

Look for snowy frost build up on the inside rear freezer panel. If there is snow, your self defrost system is not working. 90% chance your defrost heaters are burned out (will sow open with multimeter set for continuity, Rx10, Rx100, etc...) If the heater is good check the defrost termination thermostat at the top of the evaporator (cooling coil) it is clipped to the top. About the size of 15 quarters stacked up.. two wires coming out of it. It will only show closed if it is below around 20 degrees. If neither of them is bad, replace the defrost timer. It is in the top of the fresh food section by the control dials.

These refrigerator use the cold air from the freezer the cool the refrigerator. At the rear of the upper refrigerator compartment, there is a shroud. Remove the shroud and you should see a "flapper" that shuts off the cold air when desired. You will most likely see the flap is broken. Once the flap is broken, you lose control of your refrigerator temp. This is a common problem with this refrigerator.
Hope this helps.
