Dave, what you are hearing is the overload kicking out on the compressor. It's one of two things, either the compressor is failing or PTC (overload, relay) is going bad. I haven't seen too many PTC's fail on Frigidaire, but I have seen a lot of compressors failing. Your refrigerator will have a 5 year warranty, parts and labor if the compressor is at fault. You would have to do some tests on the compressor to determine which one is at fault. If you have a clamp on ammeter you can see how many amps the compressor is drawing during start and run. The compressor should have a label on it with the amperage information. You could just replace the PTC, part number 218721119 and see if the problem goes away but you could be throwing away money here if the compressor is the problem. With out being there, my guess would be the compressor itself. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Buzzing and low temps
sound like a compresser relay/overload ,uplug the refigerator remove back cover, remove relay that is on the compressor and check it by shaking it , it should not rattle. if it does replace it..

The defrost system is not doing it's job. I bet if you took the panel off below the fan you will see more ice on the cooling coils. There should be a light coat of frost on the coils but not a heavy ice build up. There is a heating element at the bottom area of these coils which should be defrosting all this ice.
1. A defrost timer turns this heating element on.
2. The heating element melts the ice.
3. A thermo disc attached to the coils will turn the heater off.
One or more of these are not doing it's job.

THE CURCUIT BOARD IS NOT SENDING A SIGNAL TO YOUR MOTOR WHICH ENABLES YOUR MOTOR TO KEEP THE VALUBLE CONTENTS IN YOUR FRIDGE COLD...(BEER) EVERY MANS FAVOURITE HOBBY...CHECK YOUR CIRCUIT BOARD FOR CORROSION OR DAMAGE...HOPE THIS HELPS...IF SO SEND ME A COLD ONE

sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold
