Question about Refrigerators
It is good that you know how to use multimeter. I am not an expert in compressor but I think it should involve a motor. When the compressor is running, it should be supplied with close to powerpoint voltage. I am not sure what your powerpoint voltage is as I don't know which country you are in. The reading you gave were not quite close to powerpoint voltage (I thought it should be in the range of 110V to 240V). If it is a transformer, the voltage should add up but I am not sure about compressor. See if you can provide more information.

SOURCE: Refrigerator buzzes & clicks
The only thing a capacitor does is 'kick' the compressor to start it. There is a box on the compressor containing the start relay. If it is defective or dirty, it might buzz. With the power off, find it, remove its cover and use some canned air to blow off any dirt inside. If that doesn't fix it, replace it. If there is a fan down there, be careful...and be sure it is working.

sounds like a compressor issue, perhaps the good news would be if its just under 5 yrs, youll have a 5 yr warr onthe compressor assy.( you should anyway) ck your manual for warr info

If the "clicking" noise is from a relay on the board or compressor, it's likely th compressor would be cycling on and off.
It could be a fan blade (evaporator or condenser) hitting something. Both fans only run when the compressor is on. This should be addressed ASAP as it could be a wire it's rubbing on.
Finally, the noise could be caused by the refrigerant within the sealed refrigeration system. This noise is more of a nuisance rather than a mechanical failure.

Yes your compressor is coming to a stop. There was a 5yr warranty I am sure but if it's 6.5yrs now it's still beyond coverage. I would call some authorized companies familiar with these models who replace the compressors. Not all companies do. Shop around for the best price. I am sure you can do better than $700. I can usually compete that job in 1.5hrs. And the replacement is a great compressor.

SOURCE: Fridge working but not cooling.
The white component you see , is the problem . That is the overload/relay . These short due to power surges , dirty coils in the front bottom of refrig , or just by age . They short , to save the compressor , when one of these happens . The part number you need is # 8201786 . This part just prys off (maybe one wire clip ) , easily replaceable with instructions included with the part .

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
