Hi this is Bryan , your circuit board should be in the back of ref. , you will see a cover with three 1/4" screws . take screws out and you will see board, inspect for bad solder connections , I've seen that allot. it could also be relay on board either way you may have to replace board. can you give me model and serial? thanks Bryan

okay let me check model I'll get back to you, did you find the board? is the clicking comming from board? if it is you probably need a new board. Bryan

Hi Bryan, it is coming from the board. It kind of makes a humming sound and click. Is there any other relay it could be before I change the board? Thanks,
Doug
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
probably not, I've done allot of these over the years and usually when board keeps clicking it needs replacing, I'm sorry. you can go to www.repairclinic.com and look at board I dont know if they are the cheapest but at least you can get # XXXXX compare. another site you can look is www.pcappliancerepair.com they have it also. if I helped you can accept. thanks again Bryan. p.s. feedback is appreciated thanks again.

Hi Bryan, sorry to keep bugging you. Last question. There is a part called a Run Capacitor. It looks like a relay that starts the compressor. Can you assure me that this has nothing to do with my problem or can it be another posibility?? Thanks, Doug
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
is there any noise from the compressor relay? its unusual on your ref. to be honest there is no way to be sure on line without seeing machine in person, I'm going on experience with your ref. if I had to give odds i would say 80-90% its your board, thats all I can do. thank you , Bryan
