Might be the compressor relay is fixin to depart this life. Kenmore 65234 bottom refrigerator has a hum/rattle - themobilian_1937.jpg
If this relay starts sticking all the windings will remain active and overheat the compressor. The overload will tae notice and shut the whole shebang down. Once it cools and makes contact the circus continues until the relay finally disintegrates. The last death throws will be a constant clicking followed by noticeable cooling loss in the ice box.

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

Thank you for using fixya

Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.
