Question about Kitchen Ranges
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your refrigerator. From the description you have given here, it is most likely the start relay for the refrigerator that has gone out.
To check this, you will need to pull the refrigerator out and get behind it. Unplug the cord from the wall and and remove the lower rear panel. Behind there is a compressor, it is black and about the size of a bowling ball, this is the device you are hearing trying to start. On one side of it is a plastic cover with wires entering it. Remove that cover and that will expose the start device in question. If you remove wires from the components be sure to note where they came off, I like to take a digital picture so I remember. The first component that comes off is the relay, if it rattles it is bad.
If you can send me the complete model number from the tag on the refrigerator I can help identify the part number you will need to fix it.

Mvl777, If the condenser coils are clean and dust-free, then unit may need to have compressor replaced, or at least inspected by a qualified HVAC appliance technician to determine cause of "shutdown" !! When was last time unit's condenser coils were cleaned with a vaccum cleaner??? Are the automatic "defrost" heating coils working? Your unit may need to be emptied out and left open overnight (defrosted) to completely defrost unit. 12fixlouie
