Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If you have replaced the relay and it still clicks off, the compressor is faulty and will need to be replaced. That being said, you may buy a little time, usually less than 6 months, with a hard start kit, available below.
