First you should test the two thermostats controls. You should check if they are not stuck in off position and that is the reason that the compressor cannot start.

Second the problem with compressor is can be the overload protector-klixon cut it off to protect it from burn up.
The two most possible faults are.
1. The lost of refrigerant gas can make compressor overheat so the overload will cut it off. You need to check Freon gas and charge if needed.
2. The compressor relay stuck to of and that can switch compressor on, after you leave it off for some time the relay contacts cool down and work again for a while so you need to replace relay.

3. Starting capacitor is cannot hold any voltage for some times that is the reason the compressor ca not start for a while.

Third the overload protector - klaxon is faulty and need to be replaced.

The most important is that the compressor is running even for a while and system freeze which mean that the expensive parts are ok, therefore you know for sure that it worth even to use a professional if you are not familiar with above parts.

Below we have a link with parts schematics and wiring diagrams which will help you find the above parts and test them. You can even find their codes and if you like to order them online.

Fridge started to make a humming Unplugged it,let it sit for an hour,it was fine.water on the floor from the ice-and I unplugged it for the night.I got up shook it-worked for 2 weeks.

What sort of "humming" noise? Refrigeration systems rely upon vapor compression to operate -- meaning occasionally to maintain temp a compressor will kick in which can hum.

if the compressor makes a clicking sound every couple of minutes you could have a bad start device located on the compressor.unplug the fridge,pop off the clip and slide the start device off of the compressor,the easiest way to check it is to just shake it,if it sounds like a piece is rattling around in it then it's cooked and needs to be replaced.part number 218721119 and it's around 40 to 50 dollars.

Whenever you get a frig or freezer delivered it is best to wait at least 24hrs (some say 8 hrs) before you plug in. It maybe unknown to you if this was shipped to you in the laying down postion. If it was and you plugged in it will not work because laying down the oil migrated away from the compressor.

Other than that the freezer could have (possible chance but still possible) problems that are out of your control. If you brought it at a retail store you have at least 2 weeks to exchange. Do that a.s.a.p.
Dont bother trying to figure out just exchange!!!

hope this was helpful

Freezer Problem

If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes

Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.
