Hi. The clicking sound came from the compressor which is not getting enough power and the cause would be relay/overload protector or the compressor itself is failing. The fridge should be turned off or disconnected\015\012from power for at least 10-15 minutes to allow the compressor a chance\015\012to cool. If it didn't start right up when turned back on, it should be\015\012left off until it can be serviced. Allowing the compressor to continually click on and off can cause damage to the compressor

Hello there, I have a GE model GSH 25 JF side by side fridge. I believe it's a 2005 model. The Freezer and Fridge are running, but neiher is cool at all. There is a clicking noise happening about every second and when it clicks, the light goes dim. I went to the back of the fridge and it is coming from a (looks like a mother board) behind a metal panel. The fridge has been in the garage and it does get 120 plus degrees in my garage in the summer. Thanks, Gary
There is a box welded to the side of the compressor. If you pry off the cover you will see two parts. The top part is called the overload; this is the one doing the clicking. Underneath the overload is the relay which is the part that temporarily ...

Da99 00258a I have an American style fridge freezer which is not getting cold. The freezer has only dropped one degree from 15 to 14 whereas the fridge has dropped from 15 yesterday to 12 today. Everything seems to be working but when I set the temperature to - 19 for the freezer and 1 degree for the fridge the display only stays at that temperature for about three seconds and then reverts to the warmer temperatures. The cooling fan is working and the fridge sound shuts off when the door opens
I had a problem getting the ice bin back into my 1990 model side-by-side Sears/Whirlpool refrigerator. Several hours later I notice that everything was getting warm and the ice was defrosting. The compressor and fan came on when I turned the freeze control knob to the coldest position. 1 hour later the freezer was 10 degrees. I then turned the control knob to almost "A". Several hours later the temperature was back up to sixty in the freezer.

RS2534WW There are several things that happened within a couple of days and it is making it hard to figure out what the problem is. First the temperature on the freezer side started to blink as if someone had left the door opened. I made sure it was shut and waited a day or so for it to stop but it didn't. Then the ice maker stopped producing ice but I can still get water out of the water side so I don't think the line is clogged. The temperature of the freezer stays around 58 degrees. On occasi

I have a 510Litre refrigerator model WBE5100SB-L. It is not freezing and the alarm keeps going off every 5 minutes or so. The temperature control is not staying at a particular level eg. 17 degrees or 19 degrees, instead it's flashing ever temperature level you put it on.
How do I get the temperature to remain on a particular level without constantly flashing and I'm losing all the perishables in the freezer.
Can you help please?
I just tried to run a self diagnostic test on my Samsung refrigerator by holding the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons down for several seconds. When I did this there was just one section of the display that lit up, the bottom half of the left "8". Can someone tell me what this error code relates to?

Error code "-" on refrigerator side. Refrigerator side will not maintain temperature, instead cycles from 38 degrees up to 65 degrees and back down every few minutes to an hour. I have been trying to get this refrigerator to operate properly for the past 2 months and have spent about $400 for parts and labor without any resolution. I am completely frustrated and do not want to spend any more money unless it is just a very little bit and we do manage to solve this problem.

I have a GE GSS25XSNA side by side fridger/ freezer. Fresh food side gets too cold. Setting is at 1. 26 degrees. I replaced the circuit board and 2 temperature sensors.
Hi, a faulty air damper is the usual cause. It is a flap that opens and closes to let the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. It sounds as if the baffle is stuck open or moving way too slowly and thus making your fresh food too co ...
I have a Samsung RSH1DBRS American style fridge/freezer. The fridge temperature has suddenly risen following a power cut and I cannot get it down to it's usual 3 degree temperature. The freezer side is working fine, as is the water and ice dispenser. Also a couple of weeks ago there was a noise from the fridge when the door was closed like a fan slowing down but it stopped when the fridge door was opened.
I have a Kitchenaid KSSC36-FMS (side by side, with ice maker, but not through the door). I turned the unit off and left it off for two months while the house was empty. When it was turned back on, the freezer wouldn't get cold. The technician said the software fried because the house got too hot. The temperature never exceeded 80 degrees. He wants to charge $600 to replace the software. Is this possible? Can the software just be rebooted? Thanks for any info you can give me.
If the main control board has failed it can be rebuilt. See www.fixyourboard.com ...

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn' ...

Will freezer work in low ambient temperature (i.e. 26'F)? I have a GE refrigerator/freezer (c. 1983) in a cabin which gets winter temps around 25 degrees. I found the freezer contents had melted and then refrozen while we were away and during a time the area temperatures were in the mid 20's. The unit works fine at room temp. with both compartments at proper temperatures. Did the thawing of contents occur due to low ambient temperature? If this is true and the freezer stops working at 25 degrees
