Hi. This will indicate that the Main circuit board(PCB), which is located in the back, middle or lower rear panel, has failed. This clicking noise is the result of a failed relay, on this particular board. The main board directs the necessary power to this fan circuit when commanded by the control sector. This type of circuit damage will cause all components within the unit to fail, thus, not allowing optimal performance. I would advise to replace this damaged board, asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate normally.

remove the cover and clean anything in the vent , check the fan for anything that could be touching it, as the back draft comes through the vent, something could just be touching the fan blade as this draft makes the blade turn slowly, which would create a ticking noise

I turn on the fan in the bathroom and as the fan gains speed, I hear a clicking sound as it the fan blades were hitting something, and it sounded like it was solid. So I took off the grille and the light...


Are you tightening the grill to the point that it is pulling itself up to touch the fan or is it pulling something down to touch the fan? I would take the grill off and with the fan running, pull and push on the points that hold the grill in place and see if that action causes the fan to click. If it does, you need to trouble shoot from there. If not, an exorcisim might be in order.

Clicking sound - not cooling


The problem is most likely the condenser fan motor at the back-side/bottom/right of the unit. If this fan is not turning, unplug the connector to this fan (inside the protective cover on the wires near the fan)... if the clicking stops, then this fan needs to be replaced.

What is happening is that this fan has failed but continues to draw a heavy load from the circuit board... It draws enough power from the circuit board to drop the voltage on the circuit board to 5-6 volts and the relays on the board open up and disconnect the power to the fan. The the voltage jumps back up to 12-13 volts and the relays turn back on causing the voltage to drop again and the relays to open.... ON....OFF...ON...OFF..... thus the clicking!

The exact part number for this fan may vary depending on the model and serial number of your unit... My model is GBS22K-BRBBB and the fan part is WR84X10055 and should cost $60-$70 though I have seen it being sold for as much as$130.
