GE Profile- Refrigerator not cool, and hear a clicking noise
GE Profile, refrigerator is about 2 years old. Came home from work today and heard a clicking noise from the back. The lights are on in the refrigerator, but it's warm. I opened the box in the back, where the clicking noise is coming from, but from there I'm clueless as what to look for or do next.

Any help would be great appreciated.



the model number is PDS22FSLSS. And the clicking noise is about every 3 seconds without any stopping.

If it's a "Hum, Click" then a break for a couple minutes and it does it again, then very likely you've probably got a bad compressor.

Don't know where you got your model # from, but you need to give the right one. It will be on the data plate inside the refrigerator section.

First I would unplug the fridg. to stop the hard starting, pry off the compressor side cover, and remove the start device, and order the factory authorized replacement part. Just make sure you get the same part you have now.
If the old start device rattles when shaken, this confirms a bad item. You can check it's ohms with a meter. If blown open, it's bad.
