The click is the contactor starter try to engage the mtor and then failing off. It must be confirmed if the compressor motor is faulty or the relay - starter contactor - is giving bad connectivity. You might have to take this out and test, if burnt replace and test. If the compressor is still not starting up your will need to take the starting curent test with a clamp tester for confirming the status of the motor. Also check on the capacitor and the line voltage. Get help if not familiar but use this advice. Aks for estimation and warrranty before the job is done and should be explained speccifically. Hope you get this right. Good day

Pull the refrig out and remove the 8"X10" small panel . Plug the refrig in and if the clicking is coming from on of the little black boxes ( relay ) , you will have to replace this main control board . WR55X1094 .

My refrigerator and freezer are not working when i plug it in it sounds like something in the back is clicking on and off. is there a rest button?


one thing can cause the clicking noise, the ptc overload relay on the compressor is making this noise and needs replacing,it simply unplugs off the compressor and the replacement plugs in these are available at most appliance repair dealers
