Title: GE refridgerator making clicking noises from main control board.
Post by: oldguy68 on June 20, 2010, 08:19:35 PM
The serial number is: DH249697

I had a problem that started about a year ago. The water dispenser would not work. I unplugged the fridge from the wall outlet for awhile and it started working for about a few months then stopped working again.

I got home today and the fridge was making this clicking noise from the lower right side panel with the main board in it. I can feel that it's the compressor relay on the main board making the clicking noise.

My main board: WKKT Model#0158-00-04
GEA Part#200D4854G013

The fridge has a ice, ice crusher and water function on the left door.

I ordered this board is this the right one?

How common is this? It only figures since my main board on my GE dishwasher went out a few years ago too..

Thanks

Check your relay before you order the board.

The relay you want me to check is where?
Is it the one at the left of the compressor with the overload?

The one that is clicking is at the bottom of the control board on the right side rear of the refridge.

Cool, I'll check that before I order anything.

Thank You :)

Ok, I checked the condenser relay. I was fine.

I had to drive an hour away to a place that had the control board.
I put it in and all is fine!

Thanks for the help!! O0

This is a common problem. the two capacitors fault to hold the relays open... causing the relay to open and close  "clicking"

I found two swollen 470Mf @25V caps on the Main Control Board, replaced them and no more relay clicking and refrigerator is up and running again! O0

I found some at the local Radio Shack 470Mf @35V which worked just fine for me.  Just one of the cap's were bad on mine.  Checked capacitance with my multi-meter first and confirmed.
