If the rotor is jammed you have a real problem. With the gas pressure difference, this just means that one side of the compressor has a higher pressure than the other. As the motors are designed to start up with equal pressure the current draw is much higher and the system is shutting down. If you switch the unit off for about 30 minutes and then restart - if you dont hear the compressor start but get a click then the compressor has failed.
