I get a single click sound just as the compressor kicks on. sometimes the compressor stays running but usually it clicks, then runs for a second or two and shuts off. After about 20 seconds it will click again to start the compressor. This can happen from one up to 10 false starts before the compressor remains running for it's full cycle. Fridge and freezer temps are normal, and it is quiet running. Condenser fan was replaced recently and is operating properly.
What is the most likely problem?
Answer Brad if you can see the condenser fan starting when the compressor is trying to start, I doubt the fan is the issue. That can be verified if the fan stays running once the compressor does start. More than likely you're looking at the compressor on it's way out or possibly the relay and overload, which are the two electrical devices on the side of the compressor which get it going. Could you double check that model #? Having trouble finding that #. There should be a model and serial ID plate on the unit with complete #'s.
My GE TBF22ZC refrigerator (circa 1985) is making a ticking noise. It appears the noise is coming from the rear of the unit, at the bottom. II don't think it's the rhythmic clicking that some people report when the main board relays go bad. Also, the ticking noise is there even when the compressor shuts off. Does the compressor fan stay on for awhile after the compressor shuts off? Could it be that the compressor fan motor bearings are going bad, and the ticking noise I'm hearing is the motor going bad or the fan blades nicking the sheet metal that surrounds the fan? Before ordering parts, I'd sure appreciate some advise. Thanks!
Answer Hello Scott,
You should pull the unit out and remove the cover over the unit compartment. This will allow you to see the components and determine what parts, (if any), will be required. There may just be an item, as you mentioned, contacting the fan blade or vibrating against the side of the compressor. I have, many times, slightly and carefully bent a freon line to eliminate a noise such as this.
The condenser fan is turning slowly.
Answer Hello Lennon,
The fan motor WR84X10055 has failed. This is a rather common failure. You should double check the model number since the one you listed isn't valid. The one I looked up is for the closest model number to the number you listed, but you still want to look it up again since there are several styles of condenser motors as you can see if you look at the one I looked up and the one you were looking at.
