It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

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.

It sounds like you have either a bad relay or a bad compressor. The fact that you hear the compressor try to start indicates that the control is good and there is voltage to the compressor. I would suspect the strat winding of the compressor but a meter would need to be used to determine is this is true.

HI, The nouse you are hearing is the relay on the compressor. It is possible the relay is going bad but, there is also a chance the conpressor is the problem. You should get a service amn to check it out. I would hate to se you change the relay and then the compressor ruin that too.
I hope tis helps.

that is most likely a relay. Does the unit get cold while running?

Frigidaire has also jumped into
the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch
and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push
the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans
should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push
the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator
from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.
This product comes equipped with an
Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the
Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature
DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature
window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the
heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer
temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN
(COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the
defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)
