Have you ever heard a click and a hum come from the rear?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
not really--1 day all is perfect next day no cool--and so on.have not noticed any click or hum
There is a reason I asked that question. I have replaced a lot of compressor relays on this model. Its not difficult and its not expensive. Usually they just fail without ever operating again. You do not have to unplug or defrost it to get it to restart?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no it restarts on its own
Ok let me check for a couple of other things real quick.

ok thanks
Well your compressor does not have that relay. However you do have a board that goes out and can become intermittent. What it will do is just totally shut the unit down, no fan no nothing,, just lights. Is that what it is doing?

i think i hear something on --not sure--it has been coupl of weeks since i unplugged it
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i just plugged it in ==lights came on and fan came on--fan went off after couple of seconds
and came back on when i pushed it back to the wall and it bumped-lights stayed on while time
Its an intermittent problem and there is not a test for it. This is what I would do.

I would locate the part somewhere nearby so I would know where it is when I needed it.

It is part number(NNN) NNN-NNNNand one place online that has it is HERE. Its a small circuit board and it is number 6 in the drawing. It is in the fresh food section at the top and the assembly comes apart just like the drawing shows. Its not too difficult.
