Ok, compressor continuity test shows that it is working correctly. Strangly enough, the relay does as well. Turns out my fuse was bad on my ohmeter so that's why it wasn't registering.

So compressor has continuity, and relay has continuity...only thing with the relay is that I have to physically pull the magnets apart to get it to open the circuit. So maybe when it's energizing the material isn't demagnetizing? Maybe the resistor in the relay is bad?

Any thoughts now? Should I reconnect the relay and leave to cover off to see what happens when the compressor kicks on?

Oh, and FYI, refrigerant is Dichlorotetrafluoroethane (CFC-114). Yikes, not refilling that anytime soon.

Thanks,
