If theres a clicking noise behind the unit,then the ptc overload relay is weak and dropping in and out which will short cycle the compressor, also a compressor thats going bad will draw excessive current and make the ptc drop in and out check start and run currents to determine this,also,but rare it could be the cold temp control

Pull out the fridge and unplug. Remove the back cover. Clean the condenser coils and fan. If they're difficult to get to, use compressed air to blow out. (you can get a can from walmart). That should fix the problem. If that doesn't work, then write back.

SOURCE: fridge not staying cold
Inside the fresh food compartment there is a defrost timer hidden behind the temp control panel. Sometimes there is a plastic plug over the hole that you need to put a flathead screwdriver in and slowly turn it clockwise. When compressor stops I want you to wait about 25 minutes to see if the refrigerator comes back on by itself without help. If it does I need you to listen inside the freezer compartment for sa sound of crackling or sizzling noise indicating defrost is taking place. Let me know, Sea Breeze

sounds as if you either need to clean the coils under the unit,they are clogged and unable to disapate correct amount of heat, or your fan mounted behind the unit, next tothe compressor has failed..YOUR UNIT IS WORKING EXTRA HARD TO GET RID OF HEAT.check those 2 places

The compressor just keeps on running.The problem is weak
compressor.The refrigerant in the compressor is got low.The compressor
is weak.The compressor needs to be replaced.-------------- The working procedure of
this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer
section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts
functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the
cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge
section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the
section, in that section the damper is located.------------ But as you mentioned
that freezer not cooling this indicates problem with compressor.When compressor
cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is
not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the
problem relates to compressor.---------- In the compressor there is a
refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the
freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop
cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the
Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new
compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new
compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required
