Compressor bad I have a 5 1/2 year old refrigerator and the compressor has gone bad. should I replace or buy new? About 1 1/2 months ago it stopped cooling and I put a hard start (3 in 1) on it, so I guess the compressor was going bad then. Now I have tested with an ohm meter and the compressor has grounded. Could putting the 3 in 1 on it messed up anything else? Any advice? Thanks!!!!!
