16.8 ohms might not be high for your contactor. Did you contact the manufacturer for the contactor you have? If the fan alone is blowing the fuse, there's a problem in the fan circuit. When the thermostat calls for cool, it energizes both Y and G.

If the blower in the furnace doesn't come on when the thermostat is in the ON position, either the thermostat is wired improperly, a safety switch is open, a fuse is open, the relay is bad, or there is something wrong with the motor.

comment Basement Subfloor for Moisture Problems
The linked products are designed for concrete slabs at grade level ("slab-on-grade concrete floor"), not basements. They will only work with small amounts of moisture that wick up through the concrete, not the potentially large amount that may be found in a basement.

How did you manually start the condensing unit? Did you bypass the contactor?

If you flip the switch on the thermostat to ON instead of AUTO, does the fan run?

comment Multiple recepticles in a circuit which covers multiple rooms, all controlled by a single GFCI receptacle
@HenryJackson The multiple GFCIs in kitchens are likely not on the same circuit, as NEC requires a minimum of 2 small appliance circuits in kitchens. In any case, you should not connect a GFCI device on the load side of another GFCI device.

comment How to resolve a crack in the shower floor?
Depending on the material the pan is made from, it may be possible to patch the crack. However, if there isn't proper support under the pan, this crack or other cracks will likely reappear.
