The clicking sound is either from your fan clicking against ice that's built up or from your compressor trying to kick on. Unplug your fridge and let it defrost for a day with the doors open. You will want to put everything in a cooler with plenty of ice. The next day plug your fridge back in. This should solve the click if it's your fan. If it doesn't then the click is in the compressor and you will need to hard start it. Hard starting a fridge is the equivalant of jumpstarting a car. It requires a specific machine. What happened was at the moment your compressor was going to kick on the power failed and so the compressor is frozen. Not temperature wise but figuratively. It needs a boost to get it kicking again. If you don't have a hard start machine consult fixya's local directory. This should just be a minimum service charge. I would try unplugging the fridge for a day first. It's cheaper. I hope this helps.

You can purchase special cleaning brushes to do that - BUT since I purchased one, I used it when I first got it and then put it away somewhere and can't find it. So I had to figure something else out, and what seems to work the best is to turn on the vacuum and put on the floor in front of the unit and then use an air compressor blowing it out from the rear. While it does blow dust into the kitchen, it seems to work well as cleaning out the condenser coils.

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Frig and Freezer not working.


Beware I bought a Frigidaire side by side in 2006 and the compressor went out in March 2008, the warranty was out in Jan, and the repair man came out and said it was a 2004 model, you might have the same one as I had, they know the compressors are bad in the frig's and you only pay,$160.something if I remember. It sounds just like the problem I had, good luck!
