Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
can you get me the full model number ?
If the fans are running its not stuck in defrost. do you hear any clicking or buzzing comming from the compressor about every 3-5 minutes ?

well to be honest I'm not convinced its the overload causing that issue. you see the fan runs through the compressor relay and when the compressor is supposed to start the fan comes on with it. I hope its not your compressor thats failed, if the compressor fails it will try to start but draws to many amps and kicks the overload off so you don't overheat and have a fire, its a safety. it could be the compressor has failed is what I'm trying to say. you can try the overload but I cant promise that will work. I wish I could be 100% sure. but I cant and the only way to tell is try it. sorry.
No thats a bad idea. you could bypass just the overload but not the rest. you'll fry the compressor. and if you bypass the overload only do that for a few seconds to see if it starts. the compressor has start windings and run windings in it , if you try to put direct current you will fry it. the overload is one the neutral side
