Question about Avanti FF1101W Top Freezer Refrigerator
By any chance is the ticking sound coming from the defrost timer, down in the freezer compartment? If the timer isn't advancing, either there won't be any automatic defrosting and the evaporator will turn into an iceberg or (if the timer gets stuck in permanent defrost) the compressor won't come on.
Defrost timers have a knob (sort of) that you can turn with a screwdriver (in one direction only). That allows you to move the timer in and out of defrost mode for troubleshooting. You can also mark the knob with a Sharpie and watch for the mark to move. These timers are supposed to make a revolution in 6 or 8 hours, depending on the model.The defrost part of the cycle usually lasts less than half an hour.
The defrost timer isn't the only part that can fail and prevent defrosting, but it's the only one likely to tick.
