“How can we make sure the compressor is safe to start?” Tim asked. “We want to make sure that it is safe to apply power to the terminals,” Bob said. ”Use the Ohmmeter set on RX10K (10,000 Ohms). Second, fasten one lead to a good ground, scrape any scale or paint off the suction line, for example, and firmly hold the lead to the bare spot. Then, touch the other lead to one of the compressor terminals and record any reading. There should not be a reading. If there is a reading, the compressor has a ground circuit in the compressor. A circuit from the motor windings to ground. ”To illustrate how your meter works, you should be able to read a slight reading through your body if you hold one lead in each hand,” Bob continued.
