    What do you mean "blew?" Blew a fuse, the condenser fan blows, the indoor blower blows?
    AFAIK, the compressor doesn't blow anything.

    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    Some components in many condensers are always energized, like run capacitors and can be damaged by a power spike, but that's theorizing as i dont know what "blew"
