Frigidaire FFHI2117LS4 makes rattling noise like a relay

Customer Question

Frigidaire FFHI2117LS4 makes rattling noise like a relay wants to engage. After that it works fine. Noise repeats every few hours Need a schematic? Part? Trouble? Please help if you can. Dusan
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: more than 3 yrs
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: probably if it is not too involved,
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: As I wrote - the machine makes a rattling noise sometimes for a couple of seconds sometimes less than a half a second. Seems like a relay somewhere in the circuit is trying to establish a contaqct but it takes a few tries

Can you tell from where the noise is coming, in the back, inside the freezer, etc?
