No, i did not check it, but i will. what should it read? i will well check it later, i'm not near the system now.
It's reading 5 amps. The start jumps to 30amps and comes back to 5amps. It only runs for one second.
If compressor starts and then drops to amps and cuts out you have bad compressor. When I replace compressor I would also replace start components. Russ
