Question about Refrigerators
The compressor motor is rattling around in it's shell. It had mounts, but they wear out. It may be ok, but I would price replacing the compressor, or the whole unit, depending on what shape it is in.

SOURCE: Kenmore frig will not cool
if compressor is hot that means comp- is trying to start but the relay /overload is bad allow comp to cool down unplug from wall and replace with exact type 1/2hp 1/4hp 1/3hp etc make sure all wireing is correct and unplug before starting that model may or may not have a run or start capacitor replace it also..

It sounds to me like the internal relief valve is lifting due to discharge pressure being to high such as it a system that is over charged with refrigerant. Have the system tested for pressures on high and low sides. If someone has serviced this unit recently there may be to much of a charge in the system. Also check the name place for the proper refrigerant and charge .

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.

You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Testimonial: "It was the compressor. Bought a new Amana and it's great! Hate Sears still;)"
check the over-load/contactor on the side of the compressor,remove it and shake it if it rattles,replace it
