Engels Fridge/freezer help and or advise

My Engels MT-35 fridge/freezer has quit running. When it is turned on one can hear the compressor try to start,then it throws the overload. Resets itself and does the same thing over again and again.
In a normal unit I would suspect 1st off the start and or run capacitors, then 2nd a frozen compressor.
The Engels has a one moving part "swing motor" for a compressor so I am inclined to rule out compressor siezure. I have not been able to find a schematic of the electrical system on any Engels units at all.

I will be taking it apart today to try and determine cause of failure.

Does anyone have knowledge or advise on a parts source or source of schematics for these type units
