Since the temperature is too warm, the clicking is probably your compressor overload relay. If the compressor is too hot or pulling a lot of amps, the relay will break the circuit to the compressor to protect it. If the condensor coils are dirty this can cause the compressor to run longer and with less air flow it will overheat. The condensor fan motor could have something caught in the blades also.

Take the back access panel off. Is it dirty? Is the fan working? Is the compressor hot? Listen for the clicks. The relay is on the left side of compressor. Is that the noise?

Unplug it, Let it cool down then clean the coils with a vacuum. Check the fan blade, it should turn freely.

You need to register you name with iFixit so no one else can get it and we can snd you notifications using the @.

Mayer, could you explain how I get an AVIATOR? Also, I guess I'm missing something while registering cause I've added my email etc.

Thank you

@kaykay, I forgot this early in the morning, but Kat-Kay can tell you.

Usually a clicking noise is a magnet being energized and moved in and out of position. This could be something getting a weak connection a part failing or it could be whatever is sending it the signal to energize that is causing the problem. If it is constant are you positive it is a click click sound and not a part maybe loose and vibrating and humming or anything like that?

We had a regular clicking/ticking noise that was driving us crazy.  No article on the internet addressed it, and it would come and go erratically - I could never get it to make the noise when I pulled the refrigerator out and searched.  That turned out to be an important clue - my wife finally spent $120 to get a repairman out, and it turned out to be a warning label on the power cord being blown by the exhaust fan against the back of the unit.  He said he'd seen that happen a dozen times. I'm putting this here so others can avoid the same facepalm moment.

I’ve had the same problem. My roommate would stand hunched over with the fridge door open while staring wistfully at all my food, while rhymically taping their fingernail on the outside of the fridge. You may want to have a frank talk with your roommate about their marijuana habit, and proper grocery planning. This stopped a lot of the clicking noises from the fridge; for me. I plan to use my shop vac in blower mode, next time I hear the clicking. This should clear my roommate away from the front of the fridge, so I can blow the remaining dust off the compressor coil. The shop vac in suction mode removed a lot of dust and hair; this improved the functionality of the compressor; mostly stopping the overheat sensor from clicking on. Maybe just do a combination of first suction then blower, to really de insulate your compressor coil. Keep the shop vac handy in blower mode for your roommate, or husband/wife, whatever the case may be.

The clicking noise is the overload cut off or OTC. It opens the circuit to the compressor if the temperature is too hot or the compressor is pulling too many amps. This is to protect the compressor. It clicks on and off. You should hear one click and then the compressor would start running. Most people don’t notice the click when everything is fine. But when the compressor isn’t working properly you’ll hear a click every few minutes and the compressor won’t start. Reasons compressor overheats - dirty coils, condenser fan failed, Freon leak, capacitor weak, run/start relay bad, bad compressor. Most ppl don’t clean coils untill the damage is done. When the system gets hot the gas doesn’t flow properly, copper tubing stresses causing leaks and/or erosion and restrictions. Dirty coils is usually the cause sealed system/compressor issues.
