13yr old Kenmore 10hr defrost timer clicking, frig cycling on and off. Should I buy a new defrost timer or accept it's time to move on to a new box. Looking at $65 for part. How do I know if the dt is the real problem. Could the clicking be caused by some other trying to die part? :violin:Have my eye on a new GE s by s just in case it's time. It's a GE# 26.64 found only at Sam's Club Warehouse. Any thoughts on either the needed repair for my oldie or the purchase of a sweet new GE would be appreciated.

Thanks

Model number,????  need to see who made this for Sears.  What is clicking on and off. Defrost timer???  Compressor???  What part you thinking to buy for $65.00. sure would not be a defrost timer, they are under $30.00.   You need to see where the clicking is coming from, pull the box out and remove the back panel to see if it is from the compressor.  And keep on walking on past that G.E. you have your eye on unless you plan on buying  a very long extended warranty to cover the repairs on this box.

Thank you for your very prompt response. Model 106.9535781. Looked up part on Sears web site and also Repair Clinic. RC was actually $73, did see confirming photo of part there. I disassembled the control panel to access the dt and confirmed it was the clicker. I am assuming this is the problem since it is the part that is clicking.

Ahh, this is an Adaptive Defrost Control Board, NOT a mechanical defrost timer.

Do you mean the compressor is clicking on and off, trying to start?  If so, this may be a start relay at the compressor.  They were famous for self-destructing.

As a side note, I doubt this refrigerator is 13 years old-- no one was using ADC boards back then.

Forgive me O Grand Master. Purchased frig when I got married. Managed to locate original parts list and the copyright is '93. Part is listed as defrost timer however I like your name for it. The link you supplied does indeed show the part. http://www.repaircli...?R=154&N=844415. When I exposed it I could hear ADCB itself clicking. Please advise Master. Buy part or punt?

Do not buy a GE.

I would not junk a machine for want of a part less than 100$, Many of these machines can have a mechanical timer installed instead of the original board. But, it's not an authorized repair method.
