Not necessarily stick but it's one of two possibilities. I've also seen the solenoid on even MDR's simply shut off when they have been running for a while. They start cold just fine but have issues as they run. You are right if a mechanical relay fails and sticks but for an MDR to stick open would be pretty remote. I don't know how that would happen unless it suddenly was laying on its side.
