Hi, I'm Daniel and I'll be helping you today I've been repairing white goods for 20+ yrs. and currently work for a well-know manufacturer.
Is the clicking noise comming from the compressor which is the black pot near the fan?
Is the compressor hot to touch?

Hi
Ok I'm afraid this isn't good news. What you will find here is the compressor has failed. The motor inside it will have jammed so the clicking noise is the relay clicking off because the compressor isn't running.
For this you need to get a fridge engineer in as this isn't a diy repair as they need to cut the old one off and fit the new one and gas it up. But this isn't going to be a cheap fix. You are looking at about £300 roughly for a compressor fitted so at that price it's something to think about.
Sorry it's not good news but this is a faulty compressor here which you have.
If you need anymore info just get back me.
