Power is on, freezer fan runs, but no cooling. Circuit panel working. Cleaned the coils which were filthy, and checked the compressor relay which appears good. Still no cooling.

It tries to come on, then clicks off in about 2 minutes. Next step? I guess I can try to verify power @ the compressor, but if it's clicking on/off, I assume it's receiving power.

That's what happens when the relay is NOT good

... then clicks off in about 2 minutes. .

... although, if it's running for that long, the Relay may be OK, and the Compressor may be bad.

You can always give the relay the ol' shake test....ie take it off, shake it and if it rattles, replace it.
