My name is Billy.
This will be related specifically to the compressor or the capacitor that helps it start.
You need to access the internals, locate capacitor and test for proper microfarads.

If it is the compressor it is not worth haing repaired as the compressor and cost would exceed the value. If the capacitor works you get off the hook for $20
