Trouble shooting with meter to make sure all compressor windings were not shorted or grounded. Then check for voltage coming to compressor. Checked start capacitor. Everything checked out ok so I turned to overload or start relay. Over load ohmed ok but relay was not and a rattling noise was heard when you shook it.
