I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator model gss20ieph. Recently

Resolved Question:

I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator model gss20ieph. Recently it started clicking - not a fast clicking, but a click every 5 seconds or so. The clicking usually goes on a few minutes, but today, it's been doing it for several hours. Like it's trying to start cooling, but can't get going. I've read it could be the start relay or main board. How can I trouble shoot to figure out which it might be and can I repair this myself?

they are different the start relay is on the compressor the main board is on the fridge

So my problem is the main board and not the start relay? I just want to make sure I buy the correct part.
