Freezer and fridge stopped cooling. Could hear compressor clicking on, smelled electronics overheating, starter melted.
remove the rear cover, and simply pull off harness and replace starter.

Extreme noise for 3 months, then not cold
Pulled the fridge from encloser, removed rear cardboard cover and found compressor in rear. The compressor, being very accessable, was easy to find the bad starter/capacitor. I removed the spring retainer, pulled the capacitor off the starter, removed the starter by pulling outward and replaced with new. All went well when the unit started and cooled as new. Some noise at times, but traced to icemaker. As time went by, that noise was gone.
