5yr old KA Superba has begun a loud clicking noise (relay? top right) about every 20 minutes. Cools and freezes fine; ice fine, but we don't hear the auto-defrosting like we used to. Coils cleaned, but they weren't that dirty.

there are several relays that turn on when a car's electrical system is engaged. It sounds like one of them is having trouble staying turned on. It may be indicative of a short or old frayed wiring that is causing a circuit to cycle continuously; or it could just be a bad relay.
I have an old battered truck with cracked, dried up wiring that his that problem with the relay on the little door under the dash that lets in fresh air. it draws juice, opens the door, overheats the bad wiring, the circuit cuts out, it cools off almost immediately, then turns on again, causing the relay to be constantly flickering on and off, and because it is old too - it clicks loudly both going off and coming on.
Hi ROBYN, Happy New Year!First a couple of clarification questions: A) Was your ice-cream maker a Kitchenaid (KA) Ice Cream maker, too, and B) was your mixer purchased after 1990?If you purchased a KA Ice Cream maker and your mixer is less than 20 years old, according to KA, the Ice cream maker should fit all mixer produced after 1990. If you have a different brand (not KA) of ice cream maker, then I’m afraid you just won’t just be able to replace the drive assembly, but you will also need the correct dasher (the scraper inside the freeze bowl), as such you probably would be better off purchasing a KA Ice Cream Maker, which would be compatible with your mixer.Of course if your mixer is over 20 years old, then even if you have a KA Ice Cream maker, it may not fit correctly anyway, which leaves you in a conundrum.Should you purchase a new KA mixer for your KA Ice Cream maker or do you purchase a new KA Ice Cream Maker to go with your current KA mixer produced after 1990? You can download the KA Ice Cream Maker Use & Care Manual from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KICA0WH_Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf I wish I could offer you a better solution to use your new ice cream maker with your current mixer, but unfortunately I am unable to do so. I hope this was helpful, even if it doesn’t provide you the answer you were looking for.Good Luck, Howard, Burke, VA.If this solution was helpful though, please rate it. hslincoln
Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.
Simple Fix. That's cost around $40. You need to replace your relay/overload. Its mounted on the compressor. It should have a black box over it. Take it off then pull the part off the compressor and replace it with a new one.
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.
The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.
