Clicking sound then within a minute clicking again, not cooling.

UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR. Carefully remove relay from the side of the compressor. You shouldn't need a tool to do this, if it is hard you can gently pry the edge with a flat head screw driver just to loosen. Unplug white and red wires from relay, noting that the white wire goes in the hole with a #2 stamped beside it. Shake old relay, if it rattles like a baby rattler then it's most likely the problem. Replace wires into the new relay and plug back into the compressor.

Stopped working, cooling.

I used a small screwdriver to disconnect wires from old starter. I connected the overload and starter, two wires. I put the unit back in the keeper, plugged the unit in, turned up the thermostat and it's working beautifully.

The compressor wouldn't run it kept going on and off and wouldn't stay running,

I unwired the overload and installed the new overoad. Plugged the starter in to the back of the compressor and wired it up. Now I'm trying to get the freezer filled up again!
