ANSWER G, You may be on track, The compressor, condenser fan and evaporator fan(in the freezer compartment) all use the same power source, when one is running, all three components should be running. You'll need to check for 120 VAC to chassis ground, on the red wire attached to the overload 4387913 If the voltage is present you'll need to test the compressor windings with a multimeter and replace the overload / relay assembly. If no voltage is present, you'll need to check and find where the red wire is broken or loose.
