    Quoted from boscokid:

    Thanks for your help. Ordered the relay part number that fits the True. Basically a $32 gamble but i'm gonna give it a shot.

    If your worried about taking a gamble on a $32 part, go to your parts house and tell them you want one of these.
    not only is it a relay, but the overload protector (which is probably what you are hearing clicking) and a start booster (start capacitor) to assist the starting of the compressor....and it's about a 20-30 dollar part......your welcome

    FYI also, it doesn't mean the relay is bad if it rattles.

    Quoted from wolv3:

    Is there a low pressure switch? Maybe compressor is cycling off on low pressure and kicking back on when the pressure raises

    Having only 10 oz. of refrigerant as a full charge, I seriously doubt it has a low pressure switch

    Quoted from PinballTilt:

    I'm no expert, I'll concede that. But every article i found says the same thing. A rattle inside the relay that sounds like pieces inside means the relay is bad.

    Care to explain your reasoning for what else a rattle sound could be?

    I've been in the HVAC/R trade most all my life....I'm sorry, I can't explain why the relay's rattles. I currently take care of all the HVAC/R equipment in 300,000 sq. ft. building that has several drinking fountains and several office mini fridges throughout, and I can tell you that a brand new relay out of the box rattles when you shake it.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Terrible idea, replace the run capacitor before trying this!

    These particular units don't use run caps

    Terrible idea? if the compressor won't start then it's a great idea....thats what they are made for
