Clicking from underneath

Every few minutes there is a click from underneath the refrigerator. then after a few seconds it clicks again. it sounds like a small relay closing, and then opening/kicking out. starting to lose cooling as well.
fins were very dusty, cleaned those off. problem continues to persist.

    should i disconnect unit until i can fix problem?

    can other damage be done, or is it just not turning compressor on?

You need a new relay and overload on the com pressor
goto type in your model number
look for compressor or controls
on the compressor itself you will see the overload box
you might need both the relay and overload id replace both anyway

    yes i would disconnect

    it could burn the internal relay

    not a promise but good to error on the side of caution

Kenmore elite refrigerator, both are "luke warm"

Sounds like your start relay/capacitor is fubar. The clicking is caused by the Klixon shutting down power to the compressor when it does not start properly. When it cools it resupplies power only to overheat and click when it shuts down again.

My refrigerator is a Kitchenaid KSRG25FKSS05 and still runs but not cooling. I hear some kind of relay click and then click again after about 10 seconds. Then I don't hear it click again for a few minutes....

refergerant is not causing this problem. when the comp starts up and the bottom fan also starts up and the fan in the freezer comes on / this alll happens whe the cold control said we need more cold . so it sounds like the one that won't come on is the comp . and the clicking noise is the thermal control shutting down. then when cooling tryes to restart. . the kit you need is 8201786 this is called a start device and comes with instructions .. cost about $70.00 . easy to install . mm hope this helped and thanks for the model # .. and for ysing fix ya feed back pls

Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

Maytag refrigerator clicking noise and stopped working

How long a period of time have you noticed this noise? If it just started and the refrigerator just stopped it could have entered its defrost cycle. When the defrost heaters come on you may hear the heat causing some expansion. After a few minutes(18-22) the defrost cycle ends and the refrigerator will restart.
