Samsung refrigerator is not cooling (fridge or freezer)

Juan N asked 3 years ago

My Samsung refrigerator model RM255BARB/XAA is not cooling (fridge or freezer).
I hear a clicking sound on the back but compressor would not start.
The compressor does get hot.
The start relay appears to check out but the compressor overload makes a lot of noise as it rattles.
Is there a way to test a compressor overload unit?
Any ideas what else could be wrong?
