    I agree.

    Is there even a "cond fan motor" (body cooling fan) on these comps???

    Wrapping a comp can be a challenge, due to the required tight wrap of the 3/8 copper cooling line and the bending of the copper to the water connections. I found it easier to set the comp on its end...

    As Per Copeland. An unloaded PWS comp will usually start to rotate on 1st contactor and then the 2nd winding kicks. But a loaded comp usually will not start to rotate w/ just the 1st contactor.
