I have removed the overload and the capacitor (1/2x2x1 in black box?) from the compressor. I shook it to see if anything sounded loose inside, and nothing does. I reconnected them and plugged the fridge back in and the compressor kicked on.
It has only been about 1/2 hr, but no more click-buzzzz-click and the compressor seems to working. The ice that I left in there seems to be re-freezing.
My question now is do I asssume that the overload is bad and just replace it, or could something else be failing and the fact that I disconnected the overload made the compressor kick back on temporarily?
Thanks for any advice,
