There should be a thermostat, perhaps it needs adjusting or perhaps it is faulty and should be replaced.

Sounds like the compressor is not working very well the clicking is the compressor starter trying to start the compressor. May be low on freon or bad compressor. You can probaly buy one cheaper than fixing this one

Intermittent noise is usually a sign that it is not flat/ on an unstable floor. The truth of the matter is that all appliances today are built cheaper as time goes on and that makes funny things happen including noise.

The fact that it is not happening all the time tells me that it is not a mechanical failure. IE: if a motor goes bad,it stays bad and does not have mood swings 3 times a day!

Easy fix.. When it starts making noise,just put your hand on the side of it and gently push. If it gets softer/goes away then you need to shim a corner or adjust the feet (most delivery guys drop it and leave. They do not adjust feet/ doors/ or anything. They just deliver) You can try different parts until you get it right but the hard part is being there when it happens

No unless you find the beep unit on the motherboard and remove it. It is a safety feature to stop food spoiling and the compressor running unneccessarily.

The cooling circuit is not working - check for a bad compressor or bad start relay/capacitor.

Check the defrost water evaporator tray located inside the bottom grille. You probably will find a disgusting mess. Remove the tray and scrub it clean to resolve the problem. While you are cleaning up, check the tube that directs defrost water into the tray. It may be clogged.

by using a knife , it is very possible that you punctured the evaporator element as it is very thin aluminium sheeting
if that is the case , there is no repair so it is junk
you can talk wit a haier service agent to see in a spare evaporator is available and if it can be installed but the cost of the job will be close to a new unit
lesson one --- only use hot water or fans to defrost fridges and freezers

not possible to remove the freezer
the most likely [problem is that the seals around the freezer door are not sealing properly
that allows the atmosphere into the freezer and the humidity then freezes and turns to ice , causing the problem
adjust the door and change that door seal
when defrosting the freezer, remove all the frozen food, and place a fan at the open door
atmospheric temp air will defrost a badly iced freezer in around 1 hour with the use of the fan on high speed

You need a service engineer. It is either low on refrigerant gas, the thermostat is faulty, or the compressor has failed.

Thin line is cold, thick line is colder.

You should check with a thermometer to be around 4'C

yes ive seen this before , it turns out that the automatic valve that lets the water in isn't shuting all the way off , something is maybe stuck inside it (no water filter on line ??) also you could just replace the valve too , that works too !!

control board, compressor, thermistor, thermostat are possibilities.

Check if the compressor fan motor is engaging. If the fan is not spinning then the coil will freeze up again. Also check that there is enough air movement around the fan for circulation. This is also try for the inside fan. Good luck
