    Sorry tossed it. Wish I saved it.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    That was my first thought, shorted cap. I’ve seen it a few times. Other things I would look at too are wire size to unit, tightness of electrical connections, condition of contactor points. Is the breaker properly sized according to MOP on nameplate with properly sized conductors. I always look for stupid stuff
