Sounds like a case of ice build up on the evaporator coils.

If you would....
1. First unplug the unit then perform a manual defrosting by removing the contents of the freezer.
2. Place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours.
NOTE: This WILL make a dripping water mess so be ready with the rags and the mop.!
3. After 2 hours return the contents to the freezer and plug the unit in.
4. Four to Six hours after that check your freezer temps. If the temps are normal you most likely have an automatic defrosting problem that is allowing the ice to build up on the evaporator coils due to the lack of normal defrosting.

These brief intermittent hums have me concerned. That is a sign that the compressor is not starting.

DO THIS FIRST! Before doing the above....... steps 1 - 4 Unplug the unit for about 30 minutes. What your doing is allowing the compressor to sit in a static condition, cool off, and equalize internal coolant pressures. After the 30 minutes plug the unit back in and listen for the compressor to start and RUN. If it tries to start and then 45 seconds or so later you hear a click then there is a problem with one of the following:

a. PTC start / run relay
b. KilXon thermal overload
c. Compressor "Run Capacitor"
d. A burned wire / terminal in / near the compressor contacts area

If the compressor starts and runs then do steps 1 - 4 above.

For parts information you may need to contact the manufacturer, and it also helps in troubleshooting.

Thank you and good luck!

if you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
