I know the start relay is bad, I tested the 10mf run capacitor with ohm meter and it charges/discharges. I thought I could use a Supo URC0410 3n1 with the original run capacitor.. Compressor kicks but the shuts down almost immediately, then will try again and get hot. Checked windings, no shorts, compressor is ZEL HDL 140D L, measured winding, C to S 6.2 | C To R 7.4| S to R 13.4..

The compressor piston is shot internally(mechanically).

I don't blame ya! LOL

Haier is made in China, and their compressors are not reliable.

The most reliable compressors are Whirlpool, so I'd buy a Whirlpool Chest Freezer next go around.:)
