The problem you describe it probably the starting kit of the compressor. You have not mention how old is the fridge so we consider that is rather new and the compressor is not possible to fail.
If you have a multi- meter you can check the compressor to see if the windings are ok.
**First, Unplug the fridge**
Remove the panel at the back down at the bottom. This should gain you access to the compressor. On the side of the compressor will be the start relay/overload assembly such as this image...it may be enclosed in a black plastic cover as well.
Pull off the relay & overload and you'll see 3 pins in the form of a triangle...
With a meter measure between any 2 pins at one time, going between each pin with one remaining on a "common" pin.
You'll want 3 measurement's, similar to this example- 6ohms, 3ohms, and 9ohms.
On some meters you may simply get a reading of "0" ohms, as long as the needle moves off of "infinity" which would indicate an "open" winding = not good !
If following that, the readings are good, you need to replace the compressor starting kit which is the part no 10 to the compressor parts diagram.
