Hi,
Sounds like possibly your compressor is overheating. Be sure to check that the condenser fan(the fan beside the compressor) is running. The compressor may have an extended warranty. Check your warranty!

Let me know if you need more assistance or if you have any questions.

Noticed that the dish washer was on during the refrigeration cycle. The drying cycle on the dish washer uses a heating coil. Noise started at 7:30 pm with buzzes and clicks from the refrigerator, as the drying cycle was on. Could it be a worn compacitor for the refrigerator? as to excessive aperage on the same line. ?
