Upright freezer compressor only works for 10 seconds.

I have about 5 years old kenmore upright freezer and it's not freezing anymore. it seems when compressor start to push cold air it turns off by itself after 10 seconds. It'll restart like 10-15 minute later or after I open and close freezer door but compressor is not running more then 10 seconds.
I thought it could be defrost timer so I forced timer to go off manually but still compressor is not running more then 10 seconds.. I noticed defrost tank is really hot all the time and coil is very clean. I need help to locate the problem.
Any suggestions would be appreciated and thank you for reading this.

The compressor is cycling on the external overload Turn the unit off and get a Service technician.

"defrost tank", do you think he's describing the compressor?
Bad start components on the compressor is most likely. If the refrig is less than 5 years old, it's a warranty call to Shears. If over five, you'd be better to find a small town appliance guy and get a hard start kit installed.
