If you replaced the start device properly, you now have a compressor with damaged windings and shutting down on it's overload. Amprobe test would confirm.

Default you can sometimes revive those compressors

use a kickstart (basically extra capacitor ) check internet for hookup instructions i had a fridge did the same thing added a kickstart capacitor for 7 dollars and it works fine.

This is a real bad idea, will work, but eventually damage the start winding, and could start a fire!

But not on R134A, fractional, domestic refrigerator compressors. If you are prepared to do testing to confirm this procedure is safe, let us know and provide the data, otherwise you look very unprofessional on this forum.

Default kick start cap

just telling my experience worked good for me. may not be for everyone, but the thing is the compressor is already not running what have you got to loose?

You will not recomend any hard start device on this forum, you are wellcome to try it someplace else.
You have not provided any evidence they are safe to use. There, however, is ample evidence they can permanently damage start windings and possably cause a house fire.
