Hello, this is Dave and I welcome you to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

It won't be the timer since the fans are running. It is either the compressor over load or more likely the relay. Let me see what relay this one has.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 3 months ago.

The relay pushes onto the compressor terminals. If you remove it and it rattles when you shake it you know it is bad.. Let me know what you find.
