How can you tell if the fan needs to be replaced?

Hi McRobbie

The devil in the details here is where the clicking is coming from, and which fan we're talking about. There can be fans circulating air in the freezer or fridge, or blowing a certain amount of freezer air into the fridge (the latter is more or less how the fridge side is usually cooled). There is also a fan that will blow on the compressor to keep it from overheating. What you may need to do is, with the fridge away from the wall and plugged in, come near to the compressor (a black metal object that looks like this
image refrigerator compressor Google Search The clicking can be the system trying to start the compressor. There is usually a bit of gear tied into the compressor that lets it build some juice in a capacitor for the startup to get moving. If the compressor isn't actually starting, then likely as not the fan won't start either, making it a symptom rather than a problem.

Is the fridge cooling now? If so, then the compressor is able to start. If not, the clicking is probably failed compressor starts. Otherwise, there will be the fan right next to it (see about halfway down the page here

The latter page has a good checklist of other diagnostic possibilities.

hope this helps!

Plastic box you're referring to contains the start components for the compressor. The clicking sound sound you hear is the protective overload shutting the compressor off because it won't start.
Two possibilities
1. The components inside the plastic box (cover) are defective and need replaced. You can remove them, by snapping off the cover and pulling them straight off. Most appliance parts houses will be happy to test them.
2. The compressor has failed internally.
Note: In my personal experience when dealing with whirlpool Estate models, 99% of the time it has been a failed compressor.

Fan oscillation

Probably damaged the fan blade. If plastic, it could be missing a blade or maybe cracked. If metal, probably bent. I would ttry to get an eyeball on it while it''s running to see just what's up. Fan motors are usually pretty durable and last quite awhile.Good Luck and hope this helps.

Relay clicking, not cooling either side

First of all Give me model# and Serial#.
you will most likely have to replace main control board and evaporator fan motor. They have had a service bulletin out on this problem.
