It keeps going through a start up process (clicking and the fan come on then off quickly) at first staying steady then getting longer in the start up process. After some start up time it will eventually (after 10-15 minutes) keep running. The sounds (start-up sounds; on/off) is coming from the upper part of the refrigerator on the wall that connects to the freezer.

Hi David, thank you for your inquiry. I understand that your Frigidaire Refrigerator is cycling on and off more than you expected. Todays newer refrigerator's have to meet Dept of Energy (DOE) specifications for energy savings. Typically the fan and compressor runs to get the fresh food temp down to 34*, the compressor shuts off and the fan runs for thirty more minutes and shuts down. The fan will repeatedly cycle on and off to keep the temp down as close to 34*. Once the temp in the fresh food hits 40* for more than two minutes the compressor cycles back on again. This will cause the temps in the fresh food to dwell between 35-40 and in the freezer section between 8-15. Hope this helps! -JK
