    You try hard to get them going. That's good. I would have checked mf then locked rotor amps and called it bad compressor. If it was my house then I would have removed fan, push in disconnect then immediately hit it with a hammer so I can have cold air until a new comp installed. Works great deal of the time

    A total of 1.5ohms from run to start seems very low, but the LRA spec of 117amps is close to what you measured. That's a weird compressor. Alost like it's designed to trip breakers

    Copeland app works good for verifying winding resistances. I have seen stalactites on factory joints before, even pieces of rod. I had a compressor that was stuck installed 4 months ago that didnt even get its first run yet. Suprised a Copeland is stuck, I usually have to deal with the LGs that take a crap all the time.
