Fan runs, but compressor not starting. Compressor tests okay with ohmmeter and getting 120V per red wire. I replaced the overload and what seemed to be a bad relay, but the compressor still fails to start. I tried testing the capacitor - seems okay via digital tests with ohmmeter. Is the compressor locked-up / bad despite testing okay for conductivity/shorting? Would the fan run if the cold control thermostat is bad? There had been some issues with frosting up before the compressor stopped running altogether. I also note voltage in the red wire (using a non-conductive voltage tester), but no voltage in the white wire - the red wire enters the compressor thru the overload; the white wire connects to the capacitor and relay - is this a clue? Any thoughts on what else I could test? I have not tried jumping the thermostat yet, but that is what I might try next.
