Sounds like locked rotor amps. Either there is a mechanical problem with the compressor or the start compactor is bad or if it has one the start relay is bad. The last two will cause motor to draw high current because it does not have enough starting torque to get the compressor running. Been many years since I worked them, the compressors use to have a data tag on them that showed the locked rotor amps.
