Test for voltage to the compressor when it turns off to eliminate the control, test current draw from the compressor to eliminate as bad compressor. If both tests are good, replace the relay and overload.

Probably has the third choice (TSD) style on as the current bad one, these seem to fail where they don't drop the start winding out and keep actually running the compressor for 10-12 seconds every couple minutes every time the overload cools down and resets.

 

From what I've seen of this newer TSD style start relay I would do everything possible to stay away from using them as a replacement.

 

What do others here think?  My thinking is constantly running the compressor on the start and run winding for 10-12 seconds every couple of minutes would be much harder on the windings then just energizing the run windings and not actually starting the compressor motor turning, (locked rotor), then tripping the overload would be easier on the compressor, (not overheating the the more delicate start windings?).

Gotta go with Willie on this one.  I remember a rash of these TSD's failing a few years back on the Kenmore and Frigidaire units.  Would replace with original start device on a COD call that would eventually turn into a warranty compressor replacement (Still 5 year warranty at the time) for locked rotors.
