If it was buzzing then click, the click would mean that the thermal overload has activated. This would happen if the compressor is drawing high amperage due to a breakdown of insulation on one of the starter or run windings. What he says is very possible.

Refrigerator side freezing


you could have a bad damper,this is located in the fridge section,all it is is a door that opens and closes to let cold air into fridge,sounds like yours is stuck open.remove the bottom kick panel and look for the tech sheet,it will tell you how to put it into diagnostics,the board will open and close,if it doesn't you know it's bad.go here and look at part number 13

8 year old regrigerator with bad compressor


Make sure it's not your start relay thats attached to the compressor.

Well if you are extremely handy you can purchase a new compressor and install it yourself.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed
