Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Several days ago I noticed my kenmore refrigerator made some strange noise frequently. It lasts 4 to 5 seconds that it stopped. Today I took seriously and found this refrigerator kept running and running. That strange noise comes on and off in a couple of minutes. What's wrong with this refrigerator? I bought it 3 year ago from sears.
It's not the relay, Your problem is either the evaporator motor or the condensor motor. Does it sound like a bird chirping or a high pitch grinding noise? If so move your refer out and get in back of it then pull your back panel at the bottom of the refer. and check and see if your fan is running. Whenever the condensor fan motor slows down or stops it causes the compressor to overheat causing it to come on and go off whenever the compressor gets too hot. If it is the evap. motor open the freezer door and check and see if you have a frost build up on the back panel. If so your evap. motor is bad and you will need to change it. Whenever your evap. motor slows or stops it causes your evaporator to ice up and freeze causing your refer to run all the time because the air flow is restricted. I hope this helps.

From your description it sounds like your hearing the start relay trying to start your compressor. most likely this relay is bad and needs replacing.
