I am working on a GE refrigerator that runs and cools fine

Customer Question

I am working on a GE refrigerator that runs and cools fine but there is a chattering or clicking sound coming from the relay assembly. Could this be a bad relay overload? I have also seen some people saying it could be a bad board?
Model: GTL12HBDBS
I removed the relay from the compressor and the noise stopped, and when you put it back the noise starts again.

It depends on where the clicking noise is coming from. If the clicking comes from the device on the side of the compressor itself, then order and replace the overload relay. There is no control board for this refrigerator so the clicking isn't coming form a control board. The overload relay assembly is part number WR07X10138 and below is a link to the kit.
