Really? Im pretty sure it was the overcurrent protection. There are three pins on the side, one on top and two on bottom. The top one had a black wire that went through the black cylinder and then to the plug, the bottom two pins had a black plastic box covering them with some electronics in it that I'm pretty sure is the starter. It hade a cone of thick copper wire on the bottom and only 1 wire coming out, the white one going to the plug.

So is the compressor totally dead? Do I just need a new starting relay?

I realize a refrigerant compressor would be quieter than a shop air compressor. But what is the PSI output on one of these conversions? I have heard the most potential is from a 110v window ac unit @250psi. Does anyone have theirs on a gage to know?

My Fridge Compressor reaches 1500 Psi and it's tiny.
