carrier 38ycc heat pump blowing fuses

Hi, I have a Carrier 38YCC heat pump which is now 9 years old. During the winter I noticed ice building up on outside of unit, but was still heating. When warm weather arrived and I put AC on, it was blowing warm air. I checked fuses to unit, and 30 amp fuse was blown, no breakers, older house. Changed fuse, put AC on, fan on outside ran for about 20 seconds, then shut off. I did a little bit of research and changed starter capacitor. Blew another fuse. Called service technician, $125 later, he diagnosed a bad compressor.I do hear humming coming from unit. Does this sound about right to you, or something else he may have missed? Thank you

Could be the compressor from your description.
