Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Good afternoon. This means that your compressor is overloading and cutting out. It will turn off for a few minutes and then try again over and over. Pull the refrigerator forward and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower back access panel and locate your large black round compressor. There is a small plastic box attached to the side of the compressor with several wires going into it. This is your overload relay. Pull the overload relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it needs to be replaced. If it doesn't rattle, then you likely have a bad compressor and you'll need to call a technician in order to replace the compressor.

Everything you've read has nothing to do with your particular problem. Accurate for your model, but for needed for completely different issues. Hopefully fixing the corroded terminal will fix the issue but if not you'd be looking at a weak overload relay or a new compressor. The issue is sporadic so it's really not something you can test but since you can't replace the compressor yourself I'd start with the overload relay if it comes down to it.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
