    Okay, so it's apparently routine shotty practices. Do you agree with rzyzzy, i.e., wait for the next failure and then get someone else out here? Or do I need to get someone out here sooner rather...

    I believe "Fixed Right" may be accurately describing what occurred. I think he pulled the refrigerant into the unit, because the only tank I recall him having was the tank of Puron. I also happened...

    Thanks. How long should it take? BTW, apparently he didn't have any nitrogen, so he was testing for leaks with a tank of Puron. I'm not sure how he purged the lines. Now he tells me he vaccumed...

    Well, I'll see what happens today. They say they'll have it repaired today. The part was available all along. The service company confessed that the problem was never the outside TXV, but the...

    Well I spoke too soon. There really isn't a temporary fix in place, and the unit stopped cooling after he left. Instead he just lubricated the TXV and made sure the refrigerant is clean and doesn't...
