I have a haier chest freezer HF71CL53NW that turns on with green light in the front but does cool. No fans or compressors run on it. The compressor is a little warm though. I do hear clicks every so often. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The "click" you hear every so often is the overload on the compressor opening. Check the overload and relay with your meter. Then check the compressor windings. If your relay and overload are different than this image take a pic and post it here. Here's how to check the relay and overload:

Here's how to check the compressor windings:

I can't see it very well in your picture. Remove it from the compressor and check the compressor windings.

I ended up fixing it. It was the starter relay on the compressor. Replaced and it start right up.

Thanks for help!
