I think you hit it right on the head. The start device is likely bad and trys to start the compressor (but can't) and it then overheats. If this type has a small white box on the left side of the compressor, take it off and shake it to see if it makes noise and debris falls out. That's the culprit. One more thing though, if your compressor has a decal with a little blue indian head drawing on it the compressor is also dead, otherwise you can just change the start device out and you should be good to go! There's a kit that replaces that type start device, comes with a new start device and overload along with the proper jumpers, etc. and it's REAL easy to install by yourself.

The compressor may not have to be changed it could be the relay that is bad, not properly starting the compressor. The relay is attached to the compressor where the wires go to it. Remove it, Shake it, If it sounds like little rocks are inside (it rattles) than it is bad. Let me know what you find

it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.

sounds like its freezing up on you. check the drain outlet and make sure that its clear. also i would replace the defrost timer on this unit because its suppose to bring on the heaterfs to melyt the ice so thaat yoiu don't have to. they are around 30 mdollars at the appliancew repair store and all you need is the model number and serial number for the uit. after you get it it's either on the very top of the refrigerator section or in the very back. It has 4 wires going to it. good luck.

It is the Freezer Fan, he ice maker fan. I experienced the same conditions of a two year period. The tech allows said either unplug overnight. I as you couldn't take the noise. Oh by the way it will be getting worse!!! The solution replace the Freezer Fan motor.it cost about $78.00 plus shipping. they are located behind the freezer rear wall. They are very labor intensive to replace because the electrical leads are attached just out of reach. I have a 33" arm and I had to act like a contortionist to unplug them.
