I bet the Iemaker arm has been turned on allowing th eicemaker to cycle every 10-15 mins when the icemaker calls for water it causes the water valve to open. with no water connected to the unit the valve buzzes loudly causing your noise. make sure the icemaker arm is in the up position thus turning the i/m off thanks peyton

You have either a bad capacitor or a bad compressor. If I were there I would put a part on called a 3 in 1. It's made by Supco. It replaces your relay Overload and start capacitor. If the compressor is good, it will fix your problem. Click on this site and you will see the part I'm talking about. It's very simple to put on. The part number is RCO410
Please rate this solution and good luck!

Once the unit ccles off, it will not cycle on. If you turn unit off for 30 secs you hear it click and it comes on again.

try and reset it by turning off supply from switchboard,then turn on again after 10 mins.

After 2 hours of use, the tiller will only run long enough to spin around once or twice then stops. The reset button has been clicked. What did I do?

check your owners manual for the duty cycle rating. If it is75% , it can run for 45 mi. and needs to cool for 15 min. before using again. if it is 50% its 30 min. & 30 min.

The fridge is not cooling at all there is a clicking noise every 30 secs to one min. the model number is ptb1553grw

it sounds like a bad: 
  •       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  •       compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps 
(bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
