This is just a WAG but it doesn't sound like a compressor problem to me. The clicking could be the start relay, which could be a combination of either the start relay or start capacitor.
The vibration and banging is probably the shock mounts that the compressor are mounted to the cabinet frame with. Although rare, if the screws come loose the compressor will slowly destroy the rubber grommet shock mounts. If you are missing even one grommet (need four) then it will vibrate and rattle. If two screws are loose then it will allow it to vibrate and rattle also.
All bets are off if the compressor is very hot to the touch! Then it probably is the compressor.
It sounds like your condenser coils need to be swapped.
Replacement parts are available from the manufacturer and aftermarket
suppliers. More conveniently, you may be able to find replacement parts
through the retailer that sold you the refrigerator or at an appliance parts store.
That sound you hear is your compressor trying to start. You will notice that the freezer temperature will begin to get warmer, while the fresh food side "seems" ok, but it wont for long. Now the problem might be the compressor itself, or the start device which starts the compressor. You will have to either buy a start kit and hope that is it, or bite the bullet and call A Fast Local Refrigerator Repair service and have them test your compressor.
only if the fan noise is driving you crazy. the noise is probaly the motor starting to go out. you can replace it. it might save you money in the long run to replace it, if it goes out you could run into bad food in your fridge.
The clicking is from your compressor relay on the side of the compressor it has eather went bad or a condenser fan motor is not running this will cause the walls to be warm if the fan is running in the back try cleaning the coils hope this helps
I had the same problem. What was happening to my was the silver tube where the water comes out was frozen. I pulled it out and put in in hot water then i put it back in. I also used a hair dryer to make sure nothing else was frozen inside. It works fine now. My frig is 18 yrs old. Now since last night I heard a loud sound like glass breaking. The noise is comming from the motor. We took the backing off to check. The freezer is starting to defrost so my quess is its on its last leg. Maybe someone out there can give me some pointers. Thanks Mrs Ruiz
It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.
