It's been a long day so maybe I'm not thinking right anymore, but shouldn't the fuse be on the hot side of the power cord.

I've started a compressor with a cheater cord and a jumper wire.  Connect the cheater cord to common and run.  Connect the jumper wire to run and start.  Plug in the cheater cord and the yank the jumper wire off after the compressor starts.
