There may be power to the compressor. You can check it with a volt meter by checking the two electrical leads at their connections.
across the line you should read 120 Volts. This indicated power is there to the compressor and your overload protector may be open. The overload "protector" and "relay" can be ordered from Sears by your model and serial number along with the names of the parts for the compressor.

This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.
There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.
Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

Clean the coils. what you are hearing is the valves as the pressure equqlizes. Also make sure that the fan by compressor is on while compressor is running.
