Why is the refrigerator ticking like a clock?
All refrigerators make a little noise when plugged in and running, but that noise should be a slight hum, not a loud ticking sound. The ticking sound of the refrigerator is very annoying and means that something is wrong with your refrigerator. Keep reading to learn about several causes of the ticking sound and what you can do to fix it:
If your refrigerator isn't cooling enough and is ticking like clockwork every five minutes or so, a fouled condenser coil in your refrigerator is most likely to blame. Years of dirt accumulation can lead to overloading of the condenser coil and constant attempts to reset it. This is why regular cleaning is essential to keep the refrigerator running. Cleaning the condenser coils is a simple procedure. They are located at the back of the device across the bottom, so you will need to unplug it and move it away from the wall to access it. For thorough cleaning, we recommend using a special brush, which is sold in many stores. Remember that annual coil cleaning is the best way to keep your refrigerator running smoothly for as long as possible.
Another reason you're hearing a ticking or clicking sound coming from your refrigerator could be due to a bad start relay. If your food often spoils and you don't feel cold air inside the refrigerator, the problem could be that your compressor won't turn on due to a faulty start relay. The relay is located in a small compartment along with the compressor, which is next to the condenser coil.
The only solution to a bad start relay is to replace it. However, first; You must find out if the problem is really the start relay. To do this, unplug the refrigerator and find the start relay on the side of the compressor. Detach it and shake gently. If you hear a rattling sound, rest assured that it needs to be replaced, which will most likely fix the ticking problem in your refrigerator. A professional craftsman is the only person who has to take on this job.
Broken defrost timer
The last reason for a ticking refrigerator is a bad defrost timer. This is the least serious of the three possible causes, as your refrigerator must continue to refrigerate food if the defrost timer is faulty. The defrost timer may be located in different parts of your refrigerator depending on the model. However, this does not mean that you should ignore the situation.
