I have a 2002 Amana Side by side frig/freezer Model# DRSE663BW. I have been noticing for about a week now that there more than normal clicking and everything seems to be running correctly.

Today when I came home the ice had melted all over, so you guess it my freezer is not working properly. We tried cleaning all the coils. Looked in the back the panel and noticed some corrosion.

Is it time to get a new frig? Any help would be appreciated.

** a week now there [is] more than normal clicking **

From where exactly?

- My refrigerator is making strange sounds. What is wrong with it?

I would say not until the cause of the problem(s) is known for certain. Then you can make an informed decesion between repair and replacement.

According to the link you provided it sounds like the condenser. I have a repair man coming out between 9am-11am. I'll let you know what they diagnose.

Thank you for your input.

** it sounds like the condenser. **

The condenser itself is just a coil of tubing, it has no moving parts. Maybe something has fallen and is vibrating there or there's a problem with its fan motor? Otherwise, clicking from the compressor relay is a common symptom.

Let us know how you make out.

Dan O. You're the man!

So the repair guy used a Supco 3 n'1 Start (Solid State Relay Overload Start Capacitor Combiniation) which replaces all 3 electrical components on all capillary systems.

Once he did that we were back in business.

$252 for a 90 day warranty which he said that should keep my frig running for another 5 years. Do you see this happening?

Otherwise a new condenser was quoted at $600 for repair.

Thanks again Dan O.
