Just curious...but have you Googled or gone to YT to check for "Troubleshooting" tips on those compressors? I downloaded an "Installer" manual for my Coleman Polar Cub 9200 and it gives excellent methods of testing/troubleshooting the entire unit. I would do this instead of dangerous "hunting and pecking"; not even sure if what you're doing is a true test.
Maybe there's a bonafide HVAC guy on here, but otherwise, you're going to get alot of "opinions".
Just my $.02 worth.

If you move your continuity meter around and find the common, you should get resistance on the other 2. Wondering if there is a thermostat on the compressor that has opened and remains open.
