Hi !
First try to rotate the thermostat clockwise and anti clock wise.. may be the thermostat is giving a wrong reading...
If it doesnot start then definetely there is a problem with the compressor start up rellay assembly.
This is a small black box close to the compressor at the back of the fridge.
First PUT OFF THE MAINS AND DISCONNECT THE PLUG FROM THE WALL..
Then one by one pull out one wire and immediately put it back from the rellay.... may be there is a loose connection.. But make sure you put back the wire where you pulled it out from BEFORE you go for the next wire...else you will NOT know where each wire goes back...
Then put the plug back into the wall soket and switch on...
If this does not work then you will definetely have to get a new starter rellay...

Regards
Berry

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.

Freezers too cold leaks h2o to fridge now fridge wont cool

Maytag refrigerator clicking


it sounds like a bad: 
  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
