Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. Please remember, I do not get paid for my time and expertise until you accept. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? Is the icemaker turned on, even though the water line is not hooked up?
Great, thank you! The sounds you are hearing are likely all related to the compressor. The clicking is likely the overload on the compressor. Does the thumping sound happen as the compressor turns off?
Does the noise seem to be coming from inside the refrigerator? Open the door and hold the door switch closed and see if the noise is present near the top of the refrigerator compartment when the unit is turned on or off.
Okay, the icemaker was in the on position and dry cycling. The bail arm needs to be in the up position to prevent it from initiating a harvest cycle. I do believe you have fixed your problem. Keep me posted, though. Once you accept, you may post back to this question thread for 30 days at no additional charge.
