Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Is the compressor running?
Okay, so the relay on the compressor is likely faulty. There are no service parts for this model so you will need to install a generic relay kit. The one below is inexpensive and easy to install and comes with instructions. I am happy to help with installation, too!

Yes, the old relay will need to be removed.
Yes, the new part comes with instructions.
That one I linked you to is a very common part. Any appliance parts store should have it. The part number is RO41.
The capacitor is actually a run capacitor and is not needed with the new relay kit. It adds a minimal amount of efficiency but I would not bother with it. The compressor will get hot, especially right at the start. However, make sure you got the red and white wires correct. If you look at the pins on the compressor, if the single pin (common) is at the top, the red (run) goes to the pin below and to the right and the white (start) goes to the lower left.
