Recycled Split Air Con


I have just got a split A/C unit that as came out of a pub cellar , my question is before I start to fit it into a cool room I have built at my farm , is can I test the compressor runs ok ( electricaly ) before fitting and gassing the split unit !, meaning will it be ok to run the Compressor to test it works for a short time ( 5 sec max ) empty of refrigerant , could block one end off so no air would be sucked in ! .

Don't run the compressor empty. Best thing to do is test the windings.
