It`s either a relay or a bad compressor . If it`s the compressor , it`s likely not worth repairing . If the existing relay is the "electronic' type , it`s likely fried if your fridge is over 5 years old . If it`s the "amperage" type , it may be a stuck plunger .
In either case , you can buy a complete start package consisting of a pre-wired relay , overload , and start capacitor for around $25.00 at any major appliance parts retailer . They`re usually known as a 3N1 kit .
