Sears Kenmore, model 106-57023601, purchased July, 2006.
A few days ago I was in the kitchen and heard the refrigerator compressor clicking on and off, on and off. Not knowing what to do I shut the unit off for a few minutes and then turned it back on. (By "shutting off" I mean I slid the temp control knob off).
This seemed to solve the problem for a few days, until now when it started doing it again. The unit is once again off and I will slide the control knob back over again in a few. But clearly I am getting a warning that something is amiss. Compressor?

Thank you.

Did some research and decided to replace the start relay. I blew out the chassis with compressed air and it is clean as new. Easy enough to do, even for a clutz like me. :?
Restarted the refrigerator and the clicking on/off behavior was no longer present. The motor was running and the fan turning.
"Great", I'm thinking, "problem solved".
That was around 11:15AM. Now, at almost 8:30PM, the temp inside the refrigerator has dropped from around 60 degrees to 55. This can't be right.  I have to think that after almost 9 hours the temp would be much cooler.
The compressor is hot to the touch. Both copper lines coming out from it are warm, if that means anything.
Help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
