. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.

Might be the compressor relay is fixin to depart this life. themobilian_1937.jpg
If this relay starts sticking all the windings will remain active and overheat the compressor. The overload will tae notice and shut the whole shebang down. Once it cools and makes contact the circus continues until the relay finally disintegrates. The last death throws will be a constant clicking followed by noticeable cooling loss in the ice box.

Fridge is not cooling and making a clicking noise. Checked back panel. cleaned whole pile of dust, fan is running smoothly. clicking time interval has increased, but still not cooling.


Try replacing the compressor relay , which is not expensive , that could be the problem , but if the compressor keeps clicking on and off (overloading) , is probably burnt.

Stopped working


Unplug the ref for a couple of hours ( let the compressor cool off) plug it back in. If it still clicks, replace the relay, if the compressor still won't start then the compressor is bad. Last rights at this point would be appropriate.
