    Default 1950 Crosley shelvador relay

    Greetings , thank you all for information , I have read all post concerning hot start relay , have acquired a R041 replacement , measured all terminals to compressor , did hot staring test manually all ran good. I had a little trouble as my temp switch had 3 wires going to where I couldn’t see . Got that separated , connected new R041 , started and ran great , but after a minute the bottom of the relay is too hot to touch . My compressor says 1/8 hp 2.5 amp. See pics, so I disconnected all recheck all connections . Still same problem . I afraid it will burn out relay fast if I leave it go ?
    Help , Any suggestions . I love this old fridge .
    Gary
