Seems like you have a burnt connection in the start device. You should replace the spade terminal and replace the start device as it probably is burnt inside.
I see lots of people where it is working great and no issues so I was curious. Obviously there is some other issue then. If start relays keep burning up there is another issue or I got a bad part. When the fridge runs it runs extremely well.
