Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.
If the compressor keeps trying to start but it just clicks and nothing happens then, yes. The hard start cap is toast.
Replace it and the start relay at the same time. If one is bad the other isnt far behind.
