Question about GE GSH25JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My refrigerator has been having problems staying on. When it goes out I can hear a clicking noise every 5-10 secs. It might click several times before attempting to start again. I can hear the compressor cycle on but then goes of in about 3 seconds. Temp of compressor is sometimes around 110 degrees. Not sure if the compressor thermal protection is keeping compressor for coming on. Any ideas. Im not sure how to trouble shoot the solid state control board. That is where the clicking sound comes from. Maybe a relay pulling in then deenergizing. Not sure

Sounds like it the compressor starter/overload relay. It's located near the compressor and should click when it tries to start the compressor. If it's bad it will rattle when you shake it because the internal parts can be burnt. The 110 degrees doesn't seem too hot. Make sure the condenser fan near the compressor run when the compressor does. Most of the time when there is noise from the control board that is trouble. It's not easy to check but sometimes you can see a burnt area if there is a problem. Post your model number for diagrams.

Kenmore side by side click and whir noise but not getting cold


There is a coil called the condenser located on the bottom of the refrigerator, that may be plugged with dirt and or animal hair. Check and clean this coil and see if this solves your problem.

Appliance Repair Boise - GE refrigerator making clcking noise


When you hear your GE Profile refrigerator making a clicking noise, coming from the back/rear of refrigerator, your refrigerator control board is bad. If your refrigerator and freezer are still cooling then you are lucky and you might have a few days to get that control board replaced. The clicking sound you're hearing most of the time, comes from a small panel located on the rear of refrigerator. Remove 3 screws and replace.

Check lite stays on


On the back side of the refrigerator (behind the access panel) you will see a small brass valve that the copper supply line is connected to. Ensure that the line on the small knob is aligned horizontally. Ensure that you have full tanks of LP gas and that the bottles are open and the regulator is allowing LP gas through. Have someone turn the refrigerator off then back on in gas mode while you stand outside and listen for the gas valve to open (you should hear a hard click sound) and shortly after you should hear the igniter click several times to light the flame. If you do not hear the gas valve open then either your gas valve is bad or the board is bad. If the valve opens but you do not hear the igniter, again you may have a bad board or bad igniter.

Not staying cold


tell me do you hear a buzzing sound for about 5 sec ending with a click sound. every so often?? if so then you have a start device (relay) problem on the compressor you may think the unit is running b/c the lights are on and fan is on but if you hear that noise coming from the back of the unit while turned on then its the start relay or worse case the compressor is locked up..9-10 though usually its the start device

Ice in icemaker is melting. refigerator is making buzzing sound for several seconds at a time like a faulty switch that is having a hard time making contact.


it sounds like the compressor is the problem.
1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

I have a freezer that does not work it clicks on for a few sec then cuts off what could be wrong


The clicking is the electronic ignitor trying to light the gas.
Either it's not getting any gas to light , or the flame sensor is not telling the computer that there is flame , so it shuts down the gas.
Most fridges have a small shut off right at the gas valve in the back of the fridge , it might be turned off. Put your ear up to the back cover of the fridge , if you hear it sparking and then you hear flame but it goes out after a few seconds , than it is the flame sensor. If you never hear the flame blowing , than it is not getting gas. Could be several different reasons. If you have disconected your tanks , maybe the gas has just not made it to the fridge yet. Newer ignitors try 3 times and then shut down if no flame is detected. Old ones only try once.

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.
