RE: Melted Wires at compressor terminals

I have run into a couple compressors with a Melted wire at a compressor terminal. I have used the terminal compressor repair kit Qucik brand and  deversitech brand and both times after I did it turn power on,call for cool and they melt instantly. 

Am I doing something wrong? I am following the manufactures instructions. 

Also what causes these to melt in the first place?

should I be checking anything out on the compressed before I do a repair kit? 

Thanks

Have you tried checking amp draw and megaohm the windings? The windings may be breaking down causing issues
