On your model, the red wire goes to the thermal overload, which is attached to the 'C' terminal of your compressor. The white wire goes to a terminal stamped 'M' on the relay. The green wire is only a ground wire and may or may not have a small terminal mounted on the edge of the compressor box to mount it. Otherwise tape it up.

Looking directly at your relay, it should have one terminal on the left and two terminal on the right. The actual wiring diagram I am looking at does not show numbers on the relay, but here's how the wires are set up. The 2 blue wires go to the run capacitor, therefore they go across the start and the run windings on the compressor. Place one blu wire on the left and one on the right lower side of the relay. The place the white wire just above it also on the right side. It should crank up!

If you're technically oriented, here is the diagram of your unit
