what you come up with :)
i say find a better technician. in less than 5 minutes i can tell you whats wrong with it and it sure isn't a start kit :)

How high of an OHM scale do you have on your meter? If you know what megaohms are you'll figure it out, if not call a qualified person, preferably in the HVAC industry.
