Why is my haier mini refrigerator compressor short cycling

At start up compressor runs for 10-15 seconds then clicks off for 1-2 min then starts up again it's pulling 4 amps at start up and it's rates for 6.5 amps at start up so I'm not locked up or over amping , possible refrigerant leak? Used r 600a refrigerant
