Question about Refrigerators
The click you hear is the overload cutout on the compressor. The compressor is failing to start. It could be overheated from excessive dirt/dust accumulation on the condenser coils under the box, the condenser cooling fan is not running, or you could have an excessive voltage drop condition from using an extension cord for power. Or you could have a faulty start relay on the compressor causing it to not start. If the coils are dirty, they can be cleaned, if the fan does not run, clear any obstructions from the fan blade, apply a drop or two of oil to the shaft if it is stiff, replace the motor if needed. The start relay is behind a cover on the compressor. Remove the cover to inspect. If none of this pans out, the compressor may be toast. And of course, unplug the unit before attempting to do any service or inspection.
