1) SHould I call the same tech back who would check the relay/overload first (relatively cheap fix)? and then they can figure out if the compressor is bad or not?
2) Given the unit's cost $1700 (can't believe I paid that much) and age 5 years, it seems the $700 to fix a compressor (my best guess) is painfully worth it. So you are saying a surge protector is all I can do. Is that sort of like the outlets used for home computers? Yesterday I bought a ShockBuster GFCI adapter, would that be "acceptable"?
Thank you, Nick
