Hi there and thank you for choosing this service.
based on your statement, this sounds like your start device is bad which is trying to start the compressor but can't seem to do so.
go around the left or right side, tell me if you can see an access panel where the thermostat control should be located?
I already have it open
Yes it just clicks, hums for a few seconds then shuts off.
How do you remove it. I took the snap wire off.
No burnt smell, definite rattle and small bits of metal coming out when I shake it.
Okay great! so that right there is your problem, replace it and you are good to go. here is the part number for the Compressor starting device
