Seems like you have a burnt wire someplace in the fridg. This will Usually cause low voltage to the compressor that will damage it and make it hard to start.
The problem most likely is a burnt wall outlet.

Sounds like the PCB (Main Control Board ) is faulty.
Check condenser fan; might need to be replaced also.

Agreed, must first find source of problems.
If the "Clicking" is from the PCB, then possible faulty capacitors, which affects the overall function of fridge. The condenser fan may malfunction also.
I repaired my PCB which had POOR QUALITY PARTS (capacitors made in Taiwan) GE refused to take responsibility.

You might try a portable fan to cool the compressor. I assume you used the right compressor start device and wired it per the original one.
