Is that the magic "solder"? Doesn't look like there's anything on there!?
Solder compound? The stuff in a red bottle?

WTF is that? Some type of glue?
I thought it was called:
HVAC Super Pro
Or something stupid like that. I remember reading "you'll ask: what did we do with leaks in walls, before hvac super pro?"
We used a dang torch. and people were happy at the end of the day.
That product should be named HVAC Super Hack.
I don't know what product it was. It was red, resembled a Loctite product, and I was able to break all joinings with only my hands. Whatever they used, it didn't work.
I've used the HVAC superpro on boiler water pipes once. They were in a wall an needed to be cut and capped and I had to work entirely by feel, they could not be seen to use a torch. It worked excellently.
The stuff I used was purple in color so it probably is not what was used in this case.
The SuperPro has like 10 warnings all over it that you must sand the fitting with coarse grit cloth and LEAVE THE FILINGS on the pipe and fittings. If you wipe them off it won't harden properly.
So was the drier and solenoid put in recently or has it actually been able to run for a while with all the joints glued together with red loctite?
That is so bad it isn't even funny it's sad :( No pride at all!
Did the red magic glue make it hard to solder it? How much of a charge did he loose?
It's too bad, it would be really cool if there were some 'magic glue' that actually worked.
