Have GE Profile Refrigerator Clicking Noises? After about 6 years the water stopped coming out for no reason but would come back on once in a while. In the morning a weird whirring noise like it was not able to start would be coming out of the back. Open and close the door and it would snap back on. Almost like it was in some sort of cycle. Then finally, out of the blue, a big storm hit and the power went out for about 6 hours. Low and behold, the refrigerator decided not to come back on.

Took the cover plate to the main board off and discovered three bad capacitors on the board. The clicking is a relay that doesn't seem to have enough power to keep it going. The power on the board was being hampered by the bad capacitors. 2 caps, 470uF 25V were way off the charts and bulged and one of the 400V 47uF caps as well. The 400V cap I tested and it was leaky but still okay enough to keep in until I ordered new ones.

Popped the main board back in, and now back in business. The water now works great as well..

Hope this might help someone with their refrigerator in a jam.. Wink
