Condensor work upon powering On/Off serveral time the fridge

I have the GE refrigirator.

The refrigirator is about 7 years old and it is in excellent shape.

The condensor does not work somtimes.

Let me explain.

When the refrigirator is warm. I power off and power on (unplug and re-plug) the fridge until I hear the condensor turns on.

I do this on a daily basis.

I checked the main board and the main board works fine.

Any idea.

Please advise

Thank you
