Stop bashing us fishermen. We're not as bad as we smell.
There are a few fishing sites I frequent, one in particular, where guys are always looking for free advice about ..............(fill in the blank). I find it quite comical. Why would anyone ask a fishing site for hvac advice??? It happens all the time. Almost as stupid as asking fishing/boating advice on an hvac forum
For those of you who care, believe it or not, I'm actually a professional bass fisherman. At least that's what they tell me. Although I have made much more money in hvac than fishing. Not ready to quit my day job.

. Try to push the relay switch in manually and see if it will "hard" start ,,,,,,,good luck
And if the motor is grounded, you can have a nice big arc and a bunch of molten copper in your face or on your arms in the few milli seconds before the breaker trips. At my work, it's immediate grounds for getting fired. Its' a good visual indicator, but a bad idea to push it in manually. There's other, better ways ot trobuelshoot without having to manually push in a contactor.... like ummm using a jumper wire or troubleshooting the controls first.
