Im looking at a Walk-in cooler condensing unit that has a Danfoss 1/4hp compressor. The condensing unit is outside and the crankcase heater blew. It took out the contactor and starter relay as well. I took the bad crankcase heater out of the sytem, replaced the blown components and ohmed out the compressor. The compressor at first ohmed out ok and didnt have winding to ground shorts. upon restarting the compressor drew nearly 100amps and trips breaker and wont start. I thoroughly checked everything in the condenser unit, defrost timer control, start and run capacitors, pressure controls, guages show equalized refrigerant pressure in system, I checked fuses and connections in disconnect box, the breaker in main panel passed continuity check. based on the amp draw and failure to start, I'd have to assume the compressor is bad. once when ohming the windings my meter bounced around a little before confirming continuity. Can compressors be borderline bad to the point where i dont get a definitive winding-to-winding or a winding-to-ground short? I had a Clamp-on meter on the common winding at the load-side of the contactor and a clamp-on meter on the start relay/start capacitor. The meter at the contactor got the high amps and the meter on the start circuit looked like power wasn't even making it to the start capacitor. Is it safe to assume the compressor is bad? Thanks for any feedback.
