Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ02 Capacitor of Compressor

Symptoms: Stopped cooling.
Steps: Unplugged overnight and once plugged back up it cools fine however once it reaches temp inside fridge, the compressor turns off but will not start back. Used amp meter and noted that it pulls 1.6 amp running normal but when it tried to restart it pulls 10.5 amp then thermal relay kicks out. I suspect start/run capacitor. Just wanted a second opinion. Once the compressor cools off then it starts back normally again but can take about an hour to do so. Freon charge shows 2 psi on suction so that’s within spec.
