The compressor stopped running. The relay/overload was kicking in and out so I replaced the relay/overload and the compressor started up and ran great. The refrig. was cooling perfectly. About 5 hours later the same problem occured. I'm assuming this happened after the unit cooled down, shut off and then tried to restart but I don't know for sure. I would like to know what would cause this.

maybe a bad Compressor ?

Does the Condenser (Compressor) Fan run ?

is the Compressor hot ?

check the Compressor Terminals OHMS

Did you replace the relay with the OEM replacement part or generic/after-market? If OEM, then you have a bad compressor.

The fan runs and the compressor isn't hot. I didn't use the original replacement. I guess I got away with that too many times with no problems. I'm on my way now with the original replacement.

 Well, the start relay wasn't the problem. I believe it is a bad compressor. It sometimes starts and runs normal. Sometimes just buzzing and gets hot fast. That was the original problem. I guess when I replaced the start relay the first time I was lucky that the compressor was in the mood to start. The pins on the compressor Ohmed at 3.2, 4.4, and 8.7. I believe that single digits are within proper range. I wasn't able to check amp draw ( i know) but I believe that is where the problem is. Also, No continuity between pins and motor case and I tested relay unplugged from compressor.
