Why were those parts changed? Was the compressor cycling on overload at the time?
If so, you should have first replaced the relay/overload combination and the see what happened.

A refrig cannot pull 40 amps in defrost , unless there is a direct short in the defrost system ( timer , heater , bimetal ) . I would use an extention cord ( for test purposes only ) , and try a different plug . Sounds like the circuit breaker is weak . In defrost , the MOST you should get , is 6 amps . This will not throw a 40 amp breaker . If you have an amp meter , remove the back refrig panel behind the refrig , and connect to one of the power cord lines (just not the green ground ) , turn into defrost and check the amps . This will tell you if short is in refrig , or weak breaker .

SOURCE: Where is the defrost timer
Behind the freezer panel at the top usually the right side but sometimes the left , snapped on to the aluminum tube, It's round a little bigger than a quarter, about an inch thick and has 2 wires usually brown and pink.It may be covered in ice if it is not functioning, So you may need a hair dryer to find it.
