Air-con blows fuse

After a new wing mirror on the 159 to get a working air temperature sensor, we thought we'd have the air con re-gassed. It's been empty for a while and wasn't worth fixing until the climate control knew the correct temperature.

The garage have gassed the air con, but it keeps blowing the fuse. They say it's when the wire on the compressor is connected, could it be seized having been run with no gas for a while?

Excuse my ignorance, but I thought the compressor was run off the engine with an electric clutch?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Mike.
