New Run Capacitor installed- same symptoms as before:
The run capacitor/relay clicks in but you can definitively hear a buzzing/arching type sound for about 5-8 seconds and then it kicks off; the compressor does not even give any hint of starting up. I let it run this cycle twice before unplugging the unit.

All the compressor Ohm tests are spot on. What would fail inside the compressor that would not show up in the resistance tests?

Any specific tests/readings that can be done on the overload relay? It just does not make sense that that part is bad as the capacitor and relay are clicking in and out.
