Fluk, based on my experience with these refrigerators, I'd bet you the Mother Board has failed. That's where the clicking is coming from. To verify this, pull the refrigerator out away from the wall then remove the aluminum panel back there (there are 4 screws holding it in place). This will expose the mother board. You won't have to use any more tools to diagnose it... you'll hear the clicking sound coming from this board.
Your 5 yr. warranty information only applies to the sealed system components; compressor, condenser, evaporator and freon. The board isn't covered, I'm sorry to say. You can try calling GE at 1-800-GE-CARES (1-800-432-2737) and explain to them that your board has failed, but I doubt you'd get very far. (They will probably try to talk you into having a GE repair company come out and do the repair, though. <-- at a cost of about $275.00.)
You can repair this for the cost of the part... about $120.00. The part number you'll need is WR55X10552 and can be obtained from your local appliance parts store (like Sears) or purchased online. There is an instruction sheet that comes with the replacement part... read it carefully. This is a very easy repair, it can be done in about 20 minutes. Remember... If you repair it yourself, UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE YOU BEGIN!!!
*TIP---> After you have the repair completed, plug your fridge into a quality surge protector, like this one or something similar.

Your refrigerator has a defrost timer located inside the fresh food compartment if bad this will stop the defrost, I did not see a circuit bort for the model ED5FHEXMQ Make sure your model is correct because it will mislead any attemp to give help, Thanks, Sea breeze,

The moisture is inside of the freezer part, may need a time or the heating coil is not working.

The knocking noise when cuts off , is a compressor internal motor support spring , broken . This does not mean the compressor is bad , only noisy for the rest of the compressor life , but should be covered under the 5 yr warranty . The gurgling sound is the refrigerant being pumped thru the system . The buzzing could be from the compressor also . My suggestion , would be to call a factory warranty company , to see if they can replace the compressor under warranty .

Testimonial: "Super quick reply and very helpful - thank you!"
First of all - make sure you route the green grounding wire connector from the board to one of the screws, holding the board cover. If you leave it hanging - you can kill the board if the wire touches some of the board elements.
Second - check what kind of sensors you have in your fridge. There are three of them: one in the fresh food section, and 2 in the freezer.
If any of the sensors has black compound where the wires enter the white plastic cylinder, you'll need to replace it with the newer one: WR55X10025
Locations: One behind the damper cover in fresh food section (far left top corner)
One in the far left bottom corner (small cover with 2 white wires to it)
One (which most likely makes the problem) is on top of the evaporator (coil in freezer section, behind the lower back cover). Ifyou replace any of them - make sure to insulate the splice points with food-grade silicone.
