You can ohm out the compressor windings==> http://fixitnow.com/wp/2010/09/09/identifying-compressor-terminals-start-run-and-main/

...and would also want to check fro high impedance leak from windings to ground for this test to be definitive.

Easy way to tell if the start relay is bad is by simply removing it from the compressor’s control pod and shaking it. If you hear any rattling, it’s fried.


I would like to know for sure whether the start relay is bad or the compressor is bad.
the start relay is an electronic part and there is no refund once purchased.


Not true if you buy the parts through this site-- you can return any part within 30 days, even electrical parts that were already installed.
