Look up under the control panel for a 1/2 " hole . Insert a screwdriver into the hole and turn . The compressor should start . The piec you turned , is the defrost timer . Pt # WR9X502 . This part should be replaced because next time it goes into defrost ( 8 hrs ) , it may stick again .

Freezer cold control won't turn


Is the compressor running? The noise you hear could be the clixon on turning on and off. If that is the case, it is sort of like a circuit breaker that turns off the juice to the motor when it is drawing too much current (when it is frozen). If not running and hot to the touch and you keep hearing the click go on and off then the compressor on unit has gone to compressor heaven. U might also check to see if the start relay/capacitor is any good - if defective it will prevent motor from starting and cooling the unit.

Not freezing or cooling and compressor clicking on and off


From your description it sounds like the start components (start relay, overload and capacitor) are having problems. The clicking you hear is probably the overload kicking out to protect the compressor. It is quite possible that the compressor simply has gotten too hot and after sitting a while will restart when plugged back in. The start components are not generally considered 'user serviceable' parts. When the compressor has cooled to pretty much room temp, plug it in and be listening for those clicks. If you hear them, unplug it because it could eventually damage the compressor. Those components give the compressor an extra jolt to get the compressor running then they drop out of the circuit. If the compressor doesn't start, it creates heat until the overload drops out.

I have a Haier model BC112G that stopped working. I unplugged it overnight and it still won't work. It just makes a clicking sound once in a while. Any Ideas? Wayne


Sounds like you compressor won't come on, check you warranty status before you call anyone. This repair can cost more than the unit did. The clicking noise is the overload on the compressor witch will happen if the relay fails (rare on this unit) or the compressor locked up. Either way, check warranty status on you unit before you call anyone, maybe cheaper to replace unit.... I hope this helped..

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.

The compressor is not running and there is a clicking noise coming from the circuit board panel on the back of the refridgerator


You have to replace the main control board . The clicking is the compressor board relay , which the only repair , is to replace the main board .

Clicking from the back, no water and not cooling or freezing.


Does the clicking noise happen every 30 seconds to 1 minute? If so, the klixon thermal current breaker could be cycling due to a current overload in the compressor circuit. A quick test to see if it is the klixon follows:
Open the refrigerator door and observe the interior light while the clicking is occuring. Observe two complete clicking cycles. Does the bulb dim or flicker real low as if someone flipped the switch off and back on real fast 1 time for each clicking noise you hear? If so, your problem is probably related to what I've outlined above regarding the compressor circuit and it's related components.

AC blower runs but compressor will not.


It could be the CONTACTOR. It could be dirty and when the system calls to run, the contactor won't make contact and complete the circuit. Worse case scenario, compressor is siezed up. If you hear a clicking noise at the condensing unit where the compressor is located, that could be the overload protector clicking and breaking the circuit if the compressor is seized up. Good luck. I hope it is a contactor or a capacitor.

Clicking noise coming from refrigerator


If the "clicking" noise is from a relay on the board or compressor, it's likely th compressor would be cycling on and off.

It could be a fan blade (evaporator or condenser) hitting something. Both fans only run when the compressor is on. This should be addressed ASAP as it could be a wire it's rubbing on.

Finally, the noise could be caused by the refrigerant within the sealed refrigeration system. This noise is more of a nuisance rather than a mechanical failure.

PDS22SBSALSS Clicking Noise/ Temperature Control Panel


Your start relay and condenser are defective, it would appear. They are there to 'kick' the compressor into starting. They should then click off and reduce the power sent to the compressor. When they don't, you get the dimming lights. See your local library for any service information they may have on the shelf. Your issue should not be model specific. About the control panel, cycle the connectors. You may catch the problem.
