Hi,
That sound is the sound of the compressor trying to start and being unsuccessful at it.. the relay closes ( first click) then the compressor does not start so the overload relay opens again, (second click) in two minutes it cools off and the process starts again...
The problem could be a terminal problem in the compressor or it could be a bad start relay and capacitor problem....I would try changing the relay and cap first....if that don't work rhen you have major problems.

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote about this that give much more deatil about the problem...

You have a bad compressor, time for a new refrigerator. Check your warantee for compressor failure. Might be 5 years.

Fridge making "knocking" noise


Remove the light shield and there should be screws under it. Remove the air tower in the back, it snaps in and there is 2 screws behind that as well to remove the damper housing that sits behind the light. Also not sure what your model is but some models have 2 air ducts that run up each side, they come out after the light shield is removed by sliding foward and then pulling down. After the screws are removed in the upper plate the light assy will snap out and there is 2 quick disconnects on the wires.

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.

This sounds like you have a Maytag Ice2O. You need to find out if that cound is a relay/overoad failure on the compressor or the compressor going out. I can say from experience that some of those have a tecumsie comprossor in them and the do tend to fail. If you hear a loud electrical humming sound coming from the compressor and your getting a warm up then you need to record this sound on some kind of sound recorder and call a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. out to look at it if it's less than 5 years old from perchase date then Whirlpool will pick up the part and labor bill of a compressor installation also check your owners manual for warrenty details. Hit me up let me know.
