Amana refrg stopped working. The fan is working. I cleaned out the bottom of it. The compressor was really hot so i disconnected it for a few minutes. replugged it. fan turned on. I hear a clicking noise and a humming sound for a few seconds and then it cuts out and then it trys again every 10-15 minutes. Any ideas on what problem may be?
