Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

Fridge freezer is making a constant clicking noise - sounds like a clock ticking. The noise is at its loudest at the bottom of the machine. Can you explain the noise? Should I take it back to the seller? Please advise - thanks.

Hi, the noise is coming from the compressor which is a sign that the start relay or the capacitor is going bad. The clicking noise is the overload on the compressor opening up and shutting off the compressor that could not start up properly..

Take care

You will need to look into the possible chance that your evaporator Fan motor has stopped, been damaged or the freezer is not defrosting properly. To allow it to continue running can damage the compressor. Click Here=> MFD2560HES Evaporator Components then 12002744 Evaporator Fan Motor and again the 67002493 Defrost Heater I have all the instructions and hands on if you would like my assistance I will be here to assist and repair you Maytag That ticking noise could have been your fan blade finally reaching the frost until the fan stopped. Let me know Here or or here on Fixya, Thanks, Sea Breeze

You can put a fan blowing on the condenser coil and see if this helps.

Good Luck,

We have a 4 year old GE fridge that is ticking like a clock but louder. the model number is GBS20HBSBWW


If the inside fan does not come one, suggestions are "bad mother board", possibly a free replacement from GE, that otherwise is $300+.

My fridge keeps making a ticking noise, sort of


The evaporator fan, inside the freezer will sometimes come in contact with ice and make this noise.
If the overload on the compressor is tripping it will make a clicking sound.
