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.

That is the compressor not running. Could be a bad compressor, or one of it's starting components.
You can remove the start components from the compressor, by removing the cover, and pulling them off the compressor pins.
Any decent sized appliance parts house will test the components, usually made up of the overload protector, start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor.
If any parts check bad, replace them, if they all check O.K. then you will need the services of a trained service tech.
