I work in South Florida and do a lot of A/C work.
No, you can not ignore the condenser. The condenser has to be replaced after a compressor failure. It cannot be flushed and will cause a premature failure of the new compressor if not replaced. You also need to find the reason for the original failure. Compressors usually have help in failing.
