I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

I had the same problem with a top freezer. I found that the thermostat was bad by tapping on the it at the setting knob. The defrost timer was replaced first which did not help (repairman put in a timer for a Frigadair which will not work in a Roper). If one is used for a frigadair as soon as it cycles it will not work again until it is unplugged and allowed to reset. I replaced both the thermostat and the right defrost timer. It has worked great for over 2 months.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a ten year
before i replaced the defrost timer again i would replace the defrost termonator . pt # 2000528 / this could cause the problem and the other is the main board pt 4288656 . both of these could cause this the bi metal thermo may not be reseting as most don't when going bad and the control board is more common and it's prob the problem .. mm / if you were to do a maintaince program you would replace the heater and the bi metal every 4 to 5 yrs as they do ware out .. and ck all fans for speed and air flow and clean coils at lease 1 a year . hope this helps mm ..
