Hi guys! Thanks for the forum - very helpful. The above model GE (5yrs old) two door fridge freezer has developed a ticking sound (quite pronounced, every sec or so) that is occuring it seems prior to the compressor motor cycle kicking in. After the ticking the compressor motor finally seems to kick in and it runs thru it's cycle. It seems when the temperature drops to the point where the compressor needs to start again, the ticking starts again. The duration of the ticking period is increasing and is now beyond 5 mins before the motor kicks in. I can turn the Freezer dial to 0 and the ticking stops then turn it back to say 4 on the dial and the motor will kick in without the ticking.

I read in the forum where there was a fault with the motherboard, but can anyone advise whether this is the likely cause of the ticking or is there some other issue?

Thanks much guys. Cheers

may be just a bad Compressor Start Relay / Overload
OR possibly a Compressor going bad.

Thanks for your response. Can you advise where is this part located - on/near the motherboard? How hard is it to replace? Not having pulled the fridge out from the wall cavity, I'm uncertain where to look. Is there are a repair manual on your site what would provide guidance for this model.

Cheers

1) on the Compressor
2) plugs right in
