Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.How often is the relay clicking on and off for the compressor exactly?
about every 2-3 seconds
ok so if it's clicking that quickly that does mean your control board is starting to fail. This is a very common failure for the Refrigerator. If you pull the refrigerator forward, there is an 8" x 10" sheet metal panel on the back of the refrigerator. Behind this panel is the control board you'll need to order and replace. The control board is about $125-150 or so. I'm really sorry about the bad news.All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings.
