Hmm, I'm no expert but since I don't see any other solutions I will give you my meager opinion. 1. In foresight you can't disconnect a compressor while it's running and reconnect it repeatedly or you will fry the compressor, especially in bigger units. A period of 15 minutes should be given to let the gasses convert back or the compressor works overtime. Same reasoning when moving a fridge to not lay it down but if necessary allow the fridge to remain upright for a while prior to operating. For the temperature relay, it is a black on one side, and aluminum on other, 4x a nickel - sized coin shaped looking thing that is a safety feature and it is on the compressor for overheating shut off. This typically wouldn't allow you to hear anything once burnt or shorted so the compressor wouldn't work at all. Therefore I suspect the Capacitor or compressor in this case and be careful to short it out with a plastic handle screwdriver once unit is unplugged as all capacitors retain power and will give u a jolt if not more serious :(_ I would seek a used capacitor from a junk fridge these are typically located under a black cover on the compressor as well and look like a small soup can. Take pics of the wiring for reconnecting and be sure not to contact the ends of the capacitor until you shorted it out as described above. Capacitors can be tested with an ohm meter but is not an accurate test. Try to get the right measuring capacitor for replacement and the amount of farads next to the voltage on side of capacitor is more important than a voltage as long as voltage isn't lower than the original. Also a capacitor is polarity sensitive so don't mix that up. Not sure if I answered your question but may have given you ways to solve them.

This sounds like the relay has gone on the compressor. Call your local appliance parts store
(no model no. needed) and ask for a hard start kit. Instructions are on kit.
I use ERP 410 powerstart relay capacitor and over load. See it has everything and is much better than the original.
Remove the back cover, pull the original relay off the compressor pins, cut the two wires and install according to instructions. Very easy job.

Thanks for using fixya

IF this is high use, the wire harness at the bottom is probably bad. This is a pricey item and is a DIY project if you feel up to it.
