Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.
How fast is it cycling on and off and do you have the complete model number off the machine?
That is the compressor relay on the unit. If you are hearing a twangy buzzing noise associated with the clicking that is not good and could be a bad compressor. Otherwise it is just the compressor relay bad. You need to pull the unit out and remove the back panel on it. You will see the compressor and the white relay mounted to the left side of it. Slide that relay off and shake it...does it sound like sand is in it? If so it is bad for sure. You can order one here CLICK HERE

OK is the compressor hot to the touch?
Ok you either have a bad relay or bad compressor the only way to really know is put a new relay on it, the compressor could be bad, but if it is not buzzing when it tries to start it probably is not bad, but you really need a new relay to know for sure.
Yes it is totally possible as well.
Ok leave the unit unplugged though until it comes.
I would get a cooler with ice or another unit as it will not be good much longer anyway
The food if you leave it like that the cooling will be gone in a matter of 4-5 hours.
I am talking about the food being bad or thawing out.
No just the food...basically the compressor is not running but trying to so you do not want to damage it anymore at all by overheating it so unplug it and get somewhere to put your food.
