The start/run capacitor may need to be changed if you cannot start it after 10 minutes max. Most AC places will sell you one and it's not that hard to change out yourself. Just follow the directions on the box and make sure it is unplugged.

At night its shuts down when the therm is satisfied,but trys to restart right away and when it does start it shuts down right away and just keeps doing this

The thermostat has a differential built into the temperature sensing operation. The differential is normally a degree or more. If the stat shuts down at 72 degrees it should not start the unit again until the temperature in the room reaches 73. If the AC runs and cools properly until it shuts down, I would check the thermostat. The AC can not restart immediately after it shuts off because the pressures in the system are too high at the compressor. It takes a few minutes for the pressures equalize allowing the compressor to start. If the stat tells the unit to start under high pressure, the compressor will shut down on overload. It will start and run after the pressure falls enough for the compressor motor to run.

My Kenmore Model # 41519101 does not get cold (freezer or refer side). The condenser fan constantly stays on. The compressor relay clicks on for 10-15 seconds and trys to start the compressor. I can...

A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

I have a 92 GMC K1500 I drove approx. 2 miles to deliver a package truck was running fine. shut it off approx 10 min. later would not crank. pulled off air breather was not getting fuel. thought fuel pump...

It can still be the fuel pump.the pump could be getting hot and not working. If u let it set for awhile and cool down it will start. You need to do a fuel pressure test it should read between 40 and 50 psi. Let it run for awhile and see if the pressure drops. If so I would replace the pump

The fan is running, the fridge trys to start the compressor frequent, but it stops in one minute.

That sounds like short cycling and could be defective compressor start relay, overload and Capacitor need to be replaced. The longer it tries to start the hotter the compressor gets so I believe until these parts=> 67005560 Start Relay With Overload and Run Capacitor 65889-4 are checked or replaced you need to unplug. It also could be your compressor is not in good shape. If you would like to test your compressor follow these instructions here=> Whirlpool Products The location for these parts are here=> Maytag MFD2560HES and in photos part 10 and 11. I will assist you in any way if needed, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Make sure both fans run at all times compressor runs because fans do not always stop when they go bad. They run when they want to.

Compressor won't keep running

unlikely unless you have put in too much refrigerant
indicates a faulty start/run capacitor for the compressor

One suggestion wouild be to check the spark right after failure. You can buy in-line spark indicators that give you a visual light if you are getting spark. This way you could see if you are losing spark when the engine warms up. If your spark is good, you would want to check the compression after the engine is warmed up and quits. You should have at least 100# minimum.
