Hi @kevinmcpike,

Does the light in the compartment still work when this occurs?

It seems like it may be a faulty Overload and PTC start relay - part #13 Unit parts diagram, part #WP2154697 (supplier example only) and hopefully it is not a faulty compressor.

Ideally to test this you would need an AC clamp meter to measure the compressor current draw when it is starting/running and check if it is within the specifications.

It is in within specs then it may be a faulty PTC relay. Search online for the part number to find suppliers that suit you best.

Unfortunately looking at images online of the compressor part #W10309994 there doesn't seem to be any amp load rating specifications shown on the label. Check the label anyway just in case it is on your compressor.

If you have a DMM (digital multimeter) you could do a static test i.e. no power connected to the freezer and check if the compressor windings are OK. Here's a video that may help with this.

If it is the compressor, then depending on your location, you may need to use a licensed repairer to replace it due to the environmental regulations regarding the handling of refrigerant gases
