Question about GE GSL25JFR Brushed Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
2005 GE Side by Side stopped working today. It Is getting power. Circuit board is making a clicking noise about every second or two. Also clicking by what I believe is the compressor(Metal obect at bottom mounted w/ rubber dampners.). Actual clicking happening at Electrical componet attached to compressor. Disconnected wires from module attached to compressor and checked connections. Every time the clicking happens the fan attached to motor moves slightly. Seems like the refrigerator clicking is happening to get compressor or motor started but it is just not starting. Looked for a reset switch or blown fuse but couldn't find anything. No other noises happening. Did all basic checks, adjusted temp controls, checked breakers, Hit compressor to get it started :) nothing worked. Any help would be greatly appreciated My side by side stopped working (not cooling) lights work, and making clicking noise. It had stopped cooling before, I unplugged for a couple of hours, and plugged it back in. It started working fine. About two weeks later, same thing. This time, more clicking and no cooling. Help please.
I fixed my motherboard.
Board WKKT Model 0158-00-04
Board GEA Part 200D4854G013
I replaced both 47uF x 400V capacitors - one of them was bulged. The bad one was open, and the other still had it's nominal value.
I tryed to make the refrigerator work, to no avail.
After a careful inspection, i replaced both 470uF x 25V capacitor (c29 and c30, i guess - near the 7805 regulator). Both had around 0.5% of their original value, and i belive it was the source of the problem.
Everytime the processor tried to start the relay, the power level dropped and the motherboard "rebooted"... and thus the cycles and clicks from the relay.
The refrigerator got back to life!
There was a recall by GE on November, 2006.
Call GE at 18003861215, option 3. Mention the recall and maybe it's still valid a free replacement.

Get a new refrigerator. Mine has done the exact same thing twice in 28 months. I'm donating mine to charity and getting another brand of Refrigerator.
