On GE products it's referred to as a rattle down. It is internal to the compressor, and short of a new one, little can be done.
They will many times run a long time before failing, even years.
The only thing you can do, is make sure the condenser coils are clean. Vacuuming doesn't always work. You need to unplug the machine, remove the back cover, and blow the coils out from back to front, and then front to back.
Ugly and dirty, but should be done. A good shop vac with a push/pull feature and crevice tool works great, if you don't have a compressed air tank.
Second, make sure the cooling fan by the compressor is running properly, and lastly Make sure you reinstall the back cover completely. IT IS A VITAL PART OF THE MACHINE.
