You have a problem with the compressor. The compressor is cycling on the overload protector and the compressor may have reached the end of its life. If your refrigerator is still covered by a five year warranty it should be replaced under the warranty.

First check and make sure the condenser is clean and free of dust and dirt. It is located behind a removable panel in back. Shut the refrigerator off and allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. Make sure the fan in back operates when you restart the compressor.

The battery compartment is at the bottom right looking at the freezer. I has a little compartment that says battery. You will need a small screw driver or similar item to pop open the door.

When I accelerate the car viberates so bad you think it is going to fall apart but as soon as you get off the gas it smooths out. I had all the tires checked, the wheels checked, rotated the tires...

Is your vehicle rear wheel drive?
If so have your drive shaft universals checked or carrier bearing.
Should it be front wheel drive have the cv joints checked.
The engine and gearbox mountings can also cause violent shuddering when accelerating

Brake vibration

When the shuddering starts pull off the road way get out and feel the rotors on all 4 wheels. If any are very hot you have a caliper piston hanging and holding the brake pad too tight against the rotor.

Appliance gives loud shudder periodically

The compressor rides on springs inside the compressor housing. Sometimes it can jump when it cuts on or off, no big deal.

This sounds like a case of bad gas affecting your vehicle's smooth operation. Try going to an auto parts store and getting some gas treatment next time you need to fill up. Add it to your gas tank at that time, and it should help. I had the same problem, and this worked for me. Good luck!
