Where abouts is the clicking noise comming from?

If you listen on the very top of the appliance does it seem to be coming from there?

The noise is coming from lower section of freezer
other observations: freezer is working ok at much lower temperature than normal whilst fridge is circa 17C
I do not hear any fan running
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

Ok what happens alot on these is the freezer evaporator ices up to much and this effects the cooling around the appliance and can stop the fan from running.

You need to empty the freezer and from there remove the back panel in the freezer.

Behind this is the evaporator, If this is covered in ice then you need to use a hairdryer and melt the ice in there as this will be effecting the air flow into the fridge as all the cooling is done in the freezer.

Once its all defrost refit the rear covers and retry the appliance and see how it goes from there. This should cure the fault from there.

But as to the nose this could be ice around the fan so again clearing the ice will stop the noise as well.

Let me know how it goes.

Was I blocked with ice on all the evaporator or was it clear?

it was clear
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

Ok if the evaporator was clear then its possibley a faulty fan motor if the fan isnt running.

Check the compressor at the back and make sure thats running. But if the say the freezer is working then the compressor must be working so if the fan isnt then its looking like a faulty fan motor here.

You need a multi meter to check the fan motor for resistance and if faulty then it needs to be replaced and that should get the fridge working. As the fan needs to runas it blows the cold air into the fridge section to do the cooling.

So try that and see how it goes from there and let me know.
