Ended up having a freon leak in tubing around door. Luckly the warranty was 5 years in sealed system. New one was FREE.

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.

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.

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling
the clicking sound you can hear is the relay or clixon as sometimes it is known by trying to start the compressor it may be stuck,first turn off the power to the refridgerator then turn the fridge so that you can see the motor,on the side of the motor you will see a small plastic cover remove it to expose the relaly remove it by pulling it towards you exposing 3 pins in a triangle shape give it a shake to free the solenoid inside the relay relace in the same way you took it off power up the fridge listen to see if you can hear the motor run constanly if it just starts and then goes of its more than likely the compressor is us

Hi katelynn_did - When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. Typically, that is correct, to silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, since you have already tried unplugging the unit and issue persists, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board, faulty internal sealed system or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.
