It’s not difficult to get used to the occasional humming noise of refrigerators, especially when it comes to the virtually silent modern models. But at the occurrence of other sounds it is necessary to be vigilant, and sometimes to call the master for refrigerator repair.

 

The occurrence of periodic clicks deserves special attention. They are usually harmless and are considered quite natural. For example, if plastic parts or evaporator tubes crackle, the cause is probably the deformation of the materials due to temperature changes. This does not lead to malfunctions.

 

It is also possible that clicks can be heard from the moment of installation – when the unit is switched on and off. Usually, this sound is from the thermostat, although it is a good idea to check the condition of the unit in any case.

Is it worth ordering refrigerator repair if you hear a clicking noise?

If the cause of side sounds cannot be explained by the above-mentioned peculiarities, and the fridge constantly fails or simply does not operate, it is better to apply to the service center and order the diagnostics of the fridge. The following faults may be detected when the refrigerator is examined:

 

Thermostat malfunction. In this case, the motor does not react in any way to attempts to switch on. The technique only emits distinct clicks and remains in the switched-off state.

Compressor malfunction. The motor only runs for a short time and then switches off with a distinctive “clicking” sound.

The starter relay is defective. The motor remains switched off, there is no lighting and only an occasional clicking noise.

If the appliance is operating correctly but the above noises are heard before the motor stops, the problem is due to loose fastenings. In this case, no repair is necessary. It is sufficient to check the level position of the unit and optimize the position of the springs holding the compressor.

How long does refrigerator repair take?

A diagnosis takes no more than half an hour. The duration of the repair depends on the specific fault. If it is a matter of replacing spare parts, the masters will do the job in 10 to 30 minutes. The same amount of time is spent on checking the performance of the whole system.
