Also question is, how do I stop my fridge from clicking?
Unplug the refrigerator to prevent shocking yourself and carefully clean the coils; you can find specially designed brushes at many plumbing stores to make this job very easy. Once the coils are clean, plug your refrigerator back in. If the refrigerator is still clicking, you need to look into a few more possibilities.
Beside above, how do you know if your refrigerator compressor is bad? Shake n' Tell for a Bad Compressor
- Grab a flathead screwdriver, pull your fridge away from the wall, and unplug it.
- Find the panel on the side of the compressor; it's held by one or two screws.
- You'll see a device called a starter relay switch, which you should unplug from the compressor.
One may also ask, why is my ice maker making a clicking noise?
ANSWER Jay, In some cases it may be normal operation but what it sounds like is that the icemaker heater is not working properly in which it can cause the popping noise. The clicking noise would be caused by the gear slipping due to the heater either not heating fast enough or not at all.
Is a noisy fridge dangerous?
