The thump is your compressor shutting can try changing the rubber grommets but most likely your compressor is just going to be loud until it finally dies.

Roper top freezer clicking and not cooling

I would start by changing the relay on the compressor, thats more than likely where the clicking noise is coming from. Whirlpool brands are notorious for that part going bad, especially ion the early years.

Freezer side working but fridge side is not?

Since we know the machine is producing cold, that is a plus. The cold is created in the freezer. From here, a fan moves it through vents into the frig. From the frig it goes back into the freezer and makes a big loop. What you have here is a motor to the fan in the freezer gone out. If you want to fix it yourself I'd be happy to tell you how. If you want to know if it's worth fixing, I would say most definitely. I would expect $60-$100 for the fan motor then labor on top of that. If you have a model number I could look it up for you :)

Kenmore top freezer frig

check your start relay on compressor. If that doesnt solve it then you need a new compressor. This is all based on the facts the you said the unit is running all the time

Freezer cold refrigerator not cold

It almost sounds as if your fridge is stuck in a defrost cycle.
The timer for this is often located behind the grill at the bottom and sometimes is constructed with a visible shaft that you can mark to see if it is running at all. Some units are constructed so that the defrost heater and compressor can't be on together, others are made so thoughtful. If you don't see a shaft, you might try an old mechanic's trick of using a screwdriver with the tip pressed against the timer housing and the handle pressed firmly behind your ear for bone conduction. If you hear anything like motor noise during the time the compressor is not on, then the timer is probably OK. If you hear nothing, then it might have failed.
