in these parts, when there is corrosion on the compressor terminals, its
from moisture condensing on the compressor because its GROSSLY OVERCHARGED.
Some that I have seen have even had algae and moss on the side of the
compressor. I would be willing to bet that the customer has to turn the
stat way down to feel "cool", the indoor RH is real high, and their power
bills are real high too. Clean/dry the compressor terminals, put new
connectors on the wires, and make sure that that they are tight when you put
it back together. Recover the excess refrigerant(probably gonna be several
pounds), and properly balance the refrigerant charge using subcooling and
Silicon sealant is conductive at higher voltage before it gets cure do not use
unless you can afford to wait until is 100% completely dry/cure.
And then you have problem if you need to remove terminal for any reason.
