Hi,
I have a Magic Chef mini fridge as attached that stopped working. It would come on for 15 seconds, click and turn off. I replaced the starter relay and overload protector with https://tinyurl.com/Frezerquestion1 from Amazon and attached.
Fridge now comes on but compressor gets scalding hot. You can touch it for 1/4 of a second.
Is the fridge beyond reasonable repair?
Thanks

Yes, that indicates your compressor is shot. It would cost more to fix than its worth.
