Question about Haier Refrigerators
I have a Haier deep freezer model number HNCM053E that keeps making a clicking sound. My lights work on the front of the unit but it won't freeze the food. I checked the compressor model number GVY44AD R134a to see if the compressor needed to be charged but it's a sealed unit. Can you please help me?

SOURCE: freezer stops freezing
How long has this happened and when did it begin. Your refrigerator has a control board located on the back inside a panel. You may need to unplug and look for burns on that board. Let me know for sure that the model is HSM25GFTSA

sound like the starting relay may be bad, get a 3 in one relay and replace the components

This is a fairly common problem with these types of refrigerators. The design is set to defrost every 12 hours and be down for 1 hour to allow ice to melt on coils. More often than not the ice never fully melts and creates a blockage in the coils and in turn slows air flow. You can remove the screws in the back wall of freezer unit and unsnap the ice maker plug to allow access to the coil. Gently tilt the back plate forward. You can then unplug the ref. and help it thaw with a blow drier. If you are not comfortable removing the back plate then you can just unplug the ref. and let it thaw on its own. this may take a while. try to remove as much ice as you can from the back of the freezer wall by hand and prop the door open for a couple of hours to ensure that all the ice melts. The rattling sound you are hearing is the fan blades hitting the ice that is built up around it. As a precaution I recommend that these type of refrigerators get manual defrost simply by unplugging about once a month for about two (2) hours. I hope that this will help you out with the melted ice cream. Good luck.

with any luck this is you overload and relay
it is the plug on the actual compressor, this is very easy to replace, if you replace it and it does exactly the same thing its your internal relay and your compressor is done....

Testimonial: "thank you...I removed the relay/regulator to find it rattled and found burnt marks inside. I found them online, am waiting its arrival now."
