Kenmore refrigerator 596.76592600

No strange noises
All lights and internal fans running.
Evaporation pans below compressor and fan have what looks like used, baked motor oil in them.
Anything I might check before clicking RegPat_Off's fridge deal of the month?

Can you give me an idea how I'd get those numbers so we can isolate the start relay (3ARR65P4E3A6) as the source of the problem?
Since the relay aint' that expensive, I can just swap it and see. It would be nice to know that is the problem before wasting time on a dead unit . . .

Does that help?

How do I check if there's power to compressor? Any other things I might check?
Thanks for all the help, really appreciate it . . .

The Fan by the Compressor ?
... Fan is running,
... compressor is cool after two minutes of running.
Does the Compressor actually run ?
Has this Fridge worked OK up till now at this location ?
OR has it been moved or cleaned lately ?

Not sure how to tell. It vibrates but that could be the fan...
Worked fine until it didn't - not moved or cleaned until two weeks ago.
I have an electrically handy friend coming by later. Anything we can meter to give a better diagnosis?

The original design has the tubing routed through the pan to speed evaporation. The line eventually ruptured, leaked freon, killed compressor.
Mechanic replaced compressor and tubing, which is now "coated" through pan. Decades of fridge design and no one throught of this? Sounds like planned obsolesence . . .
Thanks for all the help, gentlemen. Will continue to recommend this site to anyone who'll listen.
