The issue is likely with the main control again. If you do not hear the compressor coming on (or trying), that would be the case. Is the compressor getting warm at all?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have replaced the cold controls 3 times in the last 15 years. Are you sure it's not the starter relay or do you overload? Why would the cold control go out so many times.

Are you sure it's the cold control and not the start relay or overload?

If the start relay was bad, the compressor would attempt to start. You stated it is not making any noise at all. You can measure voltage at the compressor to verify control failure. No voltage would indicate faulty control.
