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.

Testimonial: "That's what my fridge is doing? Thanks for the help."
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

you would probably need to replace the defrost thermostat sensor......it is probably defective.....its a sensor that detects temps and shuts down the compessor when temps are satisfied.....now your unit just keeps workin, and working, and working and never shuts down....until the compressor overheats and shuts down due to the overload protector kickin in.............
you will need to open the back panel in the freezer compartment.....unplug unit first........take out panel and unplug harness.......there should be a round sensor that clips onto the copper pipe............it should have two wires coming out of it..........unclip it from the pipe............cut the wires at least one inch from the clip......wires should be orange/yellow or blue/brown......just cut the wires that comes out from it........do not be confused of the other two wires.................get your model number and source for a replacement part....or just purchase a universal replacement......just resplice wires follow the color codes,yellow to yellow and orange to orange....and use wire nuts and black tape afterwards and install panel and test unit.....observe it for 24 hours....................................
note evaporator coils are very sharp be careful and safe at all times.......
a feed back would be good if this helps.................
