Fantastic report. I was motivated to fix similar problem on GE wr 55X 10416.
Fridge is functioning now; no clicking, BUT the condenser fan is slower and evaporator motor breakdown that damaged the PCB is temporary replaced with a computer 12V fan.
Hope GE management will REPLACE the MOTHERBOARD and FAN FREE.
I replaced my GE of 20 yrs with this energy saver. LOL
