seems like it's either a bad Compressor Start Relay
OR a bad Compressor
similar to Whirlpool EH150CXSW00 c.1987
You could check the OHMs between each of the Compressor pins ,,
OR make a Compressor Test Start Cord

thanks... how do u test the start relay..... it clicks when i shake iit
The shake test is pretty reliable as long as it's used an a positive indicator only: if it rattles when you shake it it's bad.
But just because a relay doesn't shake doesn't mean it's good. I've seen many relays pass the shake test but the resistance between the to plugs is too high to start the compressor.
Typical is around 5 ohms, less than 10 ohm is still okay. If you start seeing much more than this, then replace the relay: http://www.repaircli...ber=EH150CXSW00
