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

Yes, there are a couple of relays inside fridges. Your fridge should come with a schematic drawing of the circuitry, usually in a bag attached to the back of the fridge. They are cheap to replace, but sometimes hard to reach.

I have the exact same problem.
It stopped dispensing water and ice, then it started to make a clicking noise and now the freezer and the refrigerator don't work.

It's interesting that this failure occurred 3 months after the 5 year warranty expiration.

the clicking noise is your water valve operating, or not
if its causing the light to dim, your loosing ground

Clicking from the back, no water and not cooling or freezing.


Does the clicking noise happen every 30 seconds to 1 minute? If so, the klixon thermal current breaker could be cycling due to a current overload in the compressor circuit. A quick test to see if it is the klixon follows:
Open the refrigerator door and observe the interior light while the clicking is occuring. Observe two complete clicking cycles. Does the bulb dim or flicker real low as if someone flipped the switch off and back on real fast 1 time for each clicking noise you hear? If so, your problem is probably related to what I've outlined above regarding the compressor circuit and it's related components.

I had the same problem. The light would dimly flicker and make a sort of clicking noise. It was still under warranty and the repair man had to replace a circuit board in the back. Not sure of what the cost would be if not under warranty. Hope this helps.

If you have a 5 year warranty, you should not take anything apart and consult the place where you got the appliance.
They should be able to tell you exactly what is covered under warranty before they work on it.

Your start relay and condenser are defective, it would appear. They are there to 'kick' the compressor into starting. They should then click off and reduce the power sent to the compressor. When they don't, you get the dimming lights. See your local library for any service information they may have on the shelf. Your issue should not be model specific. About the control panel, cycle the connectors. You may catch the problem.

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)
