Fridge making clicking noise, pretty sure its related to relay

Hey all, so I have I Kitchenaid fridge (model is KSRB27FHSS02) which is about 20 years old now. Been running good until 3 weeks ago it would make a double clicking noise every 1.5minutes. So 'click' and then 5 sec later another 'click'. I did some basic troubleshooting and it sounded like the relay so I got a new one on Amazon (a new relay and overload protector) and it seemed to do the job. Temps went back to normal no issues.

Now, 3 weeks later, Im hearing some clicking again only its sporatic and way further apart. For example I heard 2 clicks in a 5 min period, and now its been 30minutes without a click. Not sure if this is something else or maybe the relay was no good? Anyhow since its late I put a thermometer in there and will check in the early morning to see what the temps are. But if anyone has suggestions on where to start to troubleshoot I would appreciate!

Thanks all and hope everyone is staying safe
