    Were the windings shorted to ground or shorted internally?

    32 ohms from run to start
    32 ohms from common to start
    10 ohms from common to run.
    Wires on overload burned up.
    I'm not sure what to make of those readings. Breaker would trip immediately.

    Yes. Open to ground. I didn't believe @MNHVAC so I made him measure again while I watched.:D Those numbers made no sense to me either.

    There is a voltage path from run to start, that does not go through common.

    Just weird that it’s 32 exactly like C to S

    I’d like to see where.

    It has way less GWP than 407c.
    How it works as a gas is another story I suppose.

    You just watch guys, Dorm refrigerators already have started to use use iso butane as the juice. However it is limited to 6 oz capacity. The snowman will run on 22, 134 or propane. He or she does not discriminate.
