Clicking sounds (not immediately preceeded by a power loss) indicate a bad relay on the mother board. Replace the mother board, WR55X10942)

What's your problem?GE Model # GDL20KCSABS clicking sound Clicking sound


The clicking noise would generally be the overload on the compresser. Which means the compresser is locked up and unable to pump and needs to be replaced. Sorry You can install a 3in1 hard start which may free the compresser rotor and give you a little more time out of it but will need to be replaced eventually Good luck

I have to keep the temperature turned up to 9 in order to keep the food at 45 degrees. The fridge is only 3 years old.


If it's the freezer control you keep at 9, it's probably a defrost problem. If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


If it's the fridge temp control you're talking about The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
