If compressor stops 2 seconds after starting, is it probably a bad start-relay?

No, thats usually the sign of a bad compressor, now if the compressor didn't start at all then it would likely be the compressor start relay.

Jake,
Thank you for your reply. You saved us extra time, energy and money. Based on your answer, we decided to buy a new refrigerator. Take care, Denise
