PTC Starter used on some Magic Chef brand Refrigerators.
PTC stands for Positive Temperature Coefficient.
Replacing the start relay on your unit is as simple as unplugging the bad component and replacing it with a new one. If the start relay fails to operate properly, it will not engage the run relay. This, in turn, will cause the compressor not to operate. When the compressor does not circulate the coolant, the unit will not cool. Signs that the start relay may not be operating properly include the unit not reaching optimum temperature, a clicking noise when it starts up or the overload tripping causing the unit to shut off. The unit often sounds as though it is operating properly because the fan motor may continue to run; however, if it fails to cool down then either the start relay may not be operating properly.
