My 5 year old GE profile refigrator stopped working today. it has been making a ticking noise and the unit won't come back on. I unplugged and replugged and nothing happened. theres no tempeture lights on....

This problem sound to me like the timer is stuck on defrost. That is the only control on the refrigertor that makes a ticking noise. Try to manually advance it.

Clicking noise approximately 1 second apart

That clicking noise is possibly your compressor overload kicking off because it cannot start the compressor. Most times the start relay or the start capacitor are defective. But because your refrigerator has a mother board located on the back and behind a panel. We need to consider the board is going out. Unplug the refrigerator and pull away from the wall. Remove the screws on the rear panel to expose the mother board. Need to look for burn marks on both sides or a signed that a relay has been over heating. The board is part number WR55X10656

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

Ok the motherboard is malfunctioning. Ive observed this exact problem before. Replace the board and all will be normal again. If you keep lettig it click and click it may finally kill that relay that you descibed to me or even worse the compressor itself.

Side by side GE frig

I'm assuming you didn't turn the unit off! It may take 2 days to get that defrosting done. Don't forget to clean the condenser coil.

Nothing else should be needed....Good luck!

Works Off and On

Do you hear any clicking during the time it is not working? The start relay on the compressor may have a bad connection internally.

Loud noise and lots of ice buildup in freezer

Possible that door has been left open a few weeks ago, sollution, turn off defrost overnight with the doors open, turn on following day, unit will work ok within 24hrs. Regards Advisor
