Question question about the meter testing result

Good evening!

We have now been working on our fading refrigerator since I got home from work at 2pm. We set up the test on the overload relay and the first result was 6.1-7 and the other was within the 3-11 acceptable range.

If only one of the results is out of the target range, is the compressor dead, or could it still be the relay?

Now, Hubby has re-plugged the relay into where it goes on the side of the compressor, and it shot sparks everywhere and glowed. Even though I am not an electrical kind of person, I know this is not a good thing.

What next? New fridge? (I am not opposed to this, but Hubby is).

Thanks for all the help you have posted for people. That's awesome.
