If it sounds like the relay is trying to start and not actually starting the compressor...Take it back ..It will not get any better....If you try to repair it at all you will void the warranty...Bob

What is the name of the relay? Could it be the compressor?
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 7 years ago.
Could be either or...The only way to know is replace the Start Relay....Each time you hear that click...The relay is string to start the compressor by sending massive amounts of power to compressor...If its not starting then the compressor is heating up and will burn out...
