Unhappy Refrigerator Clicking Noise
Model Number: PDS520MCRBB   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


There is occasionally (more frequent day by day) a clicking noise from the rear of the refrigerator. It sounds to me as a relay trying to kick in. It will make the noise for awhile (usually after door opening/closing) and then quit. During theses episodes, the temp displays will either not show or blink.

Any help appreciated.

THANX!

Remove the motherboard cover in the back, if it's the motherboard clicking, replace it as it will eventually fail AP4436216

Mine suddenly stopped making the noise so I have not replace the board (I'm cheap).

With my luck it will ignite leading to a meltdown destroying half of the neighborhood...

If you can't afford a new board, I would locate the clicking relay by fealing each one, the big one is the compressor relay, the small one, the defrost. Then remove the cover with sharp wood chisel, then try to clean the contacts with fine emory paper, or just order a new one. Flush the relay out with non-residue contact cleaner available at Wall Mart.

OK... I ignored the warning signs and advice. The noise returned but not as loud. Chose to ignore (another intelligent move). The freezer is still holding temp but the upper section is warm and showing fifty degrees...

Could this be as a result of the board failure or has the damage progressed?

This seems to be the case. Is this replacement Part No Genuine GE? The character sequence seems to be different from GE Service Parts.
