The compressor relay is located on the compressor under a cover. Before you go to the compressor I would check for other problems that you can see and hear. If the compressor is running there is nothing wrong with its relay.
1. Check the condenser and make sure it is clear and free of dust.
2. If the compressor is cool or cold check for a bad temperature control.
3. Check the freezer compartment for frost on back wall.

most likely you have a bad start relay on the compressor. when looking at comp on the left side you will see a little square relay with 2-3 wires going to it. the pt# you need is 8201786 and can be purhased online or at a local appliance parts house this is an easy repair and the part should cost you less than 70 dollars. thx peyton

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

You have a bad overload / relay , which is plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 2220477 , and is easily replaceable .

remove the rtc overload off the compressor and shake it,if it rattles thats your culprit,also if when its running and the compressor is quite warm to the touch,its only running on the start windings and isnt actually running right and will overheat and ruin the compressor,replace the rtc its cheaper than a new compressor
