Customer: replied 2 years ago.
can you please also tell me what is a normal temperature for a proper compressor?

This sounds like you have a bad compressor. If you have replaced the inverter and it only worked that long there is a 99% chance that the winding in the compressor is bad. The compressor should feel just warm to the touch not hot.
