    That's correct. I'm sure the apt. manager wants the AC to work right because they do want to rent it out, but on the other hand he is not going to be pushed on the matter because he knows the law.

    I do agree 60° air out of the suppy is not bad. I don't know all the circumstances behind it but I do think it should be cooling better.

    I noticed that to. But the initial problem was a condenser fan motor. I assume the unit was ok until that. I think there would be a freezing problem if that were the case.
