Fridge problems

We have a 2014 Newmar Ventana 4036 with a Maytag residential
fridg. It has developed a ticking noise( off & on ). The fridg will have to be pulled from the cabinet to be examined. There is a wooden board, on top of the fridg nailed in, acting as a wedge, to keep the fridg in place. If anyone has been faced with this situation please advise. What might cause the ticking and how to remove the wooden wedge? Thanks

We had another brand fridge in the house that did that. The "ticking" was the defrost cycle and probably just the expansion of materials as the fridge warmed up briefly. In any case, it was considered "normal".

Icemakers have been know to "tick" during their cycle too, usually when getting ready to dump ice into the bin. If it's on, try turning it off and see if the ticking disappears.

I'm not familiar with your Ventana, but there is bound to be some screws holding that wedge in. Maybe under wooden caps. Hunt around and they will become evident.
