GE refrigerator clicking/ticking noises while running
« on: April 20, 2014, 03:11:20 PM »
I just moved into this rental unit last month and since I've been here the refrigerator drives me nuts with its clicking/ticking noises every time it runs, which is very regularly throughout the day.

Is anyone familiar with this kind of noise? I took the back panel off the freezer where it seems to be coming from, the noise was happening less often when I had it empty and the back panel off but was able to capture it:


here is another video of what it normally sounds like when it's running:


It's very frustrating and my landlord doesn't seem to think it's an issue because the last tenant did not complain. Any ideas what the problem might be or cost to fix it?!?

There might be a service bulletin for this. What's your model number?  There may be liquid refrigerant pooling at the end of the cap tube. If there's no bulletin, I would try carefully bending the evaporator inlet so it has a downward slope away from the cap tube. You can also use some foam insulating tape and wrap it around the cap tube and evaporator inlet.
