I recently replaced the start relay on my side by side fridge because of the buzz/click every few minutes. Since I installed the new relay the fridge still does the buzz/click everyday or so. The compressor starts and the fridge goes through it's normal process, but it still does the buzz/click(sometimes two or three times). Seems to be getting more frequent. Does this mean my compressor is dying?

I have to defer to Sensei Kdog but Sensei, is it not normal for a start relay to click for a few minutes before it starts the compressor? Could not the number of times the compressor goes into start mode depend on cold control settings? Trying to make sure I am not missing something in the diagnosis.

Thanks for th input, I figured as much. Time for a new fridge. One other quick question. I would like to milk this fridge for another few months since it still "works", no pun intended. Is there any fire hazard running this fridge with a compressor in a death spiral?

Should be safe providing all covers etc are in place.
