Our Kenmore Elite refrig started making a humming noise

Customer Question

Our Kenmore Elite refrig started making a humming noise recently. Hums for about 10 seconds then there is a click and then about 10 seconds later a clunk sound. We do not have an ice maker

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the issue is the compressor relay. The clicking is likely the overload opening due to the compressor not starting. Is it still cooling? May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
