It sound like you have a direct short in the compressor ,Usually it means you have a bad compressor,but sometimes it could be a loose wire or bad outdoor motor. Ive installed about 10 of these units and still have yet to have a bad compressor.It could also be a bad circuit board in the outdoor unit.I wish I could narrow it down better but thats my best guess!Thanks ---Nate
