So you can tell whether it's a coincidence or not by testing the windings on the compressor. There are 3 prongs on the compressor and if you test resistance through any 2 of the prongs at one time, you'll get a resistance. Whatever the lesser 2 resistances are, they should add up to be the highest 3rd combination resistance. If that all checks out, then it really was just a coincidence. But if one of the winding is open or the resistance value changed and it doesn't add up correctly, then that was caused by a power surge.
