SOURCE: frost in freezer compartment
It is possible to get this build up in the return vents. Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge. Warm air getting in will cause this. For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents. Let me know what you find. Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

defrost problem. advance defrost timer to defrost (till it shuts off) . remove freezer panel, check voltage and amps to heater,if heater is hot, replace timer, if heater is cold and no voltage, replace defrost limit switch. defrost all ice, carefully! with hair dryer, no poking with screwdriver.

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant. See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot. If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged. Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing but cools
is the freezer fan running? is there frost on the rear freezer wall if so it would be a defrost issue. if no frost on freezer rear panel it would sound like a bad compressor or sealedsystem leak.

By your description you may have a compressor problem. The noise is makes if a buzzing noise when it struggle to start (locked up). The clicking noise would be the relay clicking out on overload to the compressor.
If your correct on the date, you will be better off replacing the unit then looking into the repair, a normal compressor change out can run over 500.00. Your best bet is to cut your losses and replace the unit before spending any more money on it.
