Can you access the back of the refrigerator?
That model is considerably older, too. If you can provide the serial number, I can check the date. It is likely around 10+ years old.
Well, the issue is likely with the relay on the compressor. This model had a high failure rate on that part. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
Unplug the refrigerator. If you pull the refrigerator out and remove the cover from the back of the cabinet, at the very bottom, you will expose the parts shown at the link below.
Number 28 is the compressor, it looks like a large, round, black ball. On the left side is the start device, or relay, number 16. It will simply pull off once the retainer wire (number 19) is removed. Once it has been removed, shake it. If it rattles, it is bad and will need to be replaced. The replacement part is available below.
