    still not reccomended by me, but i doubt its gonna hurt anyone
    maybe not physically hurt someone, but if a service provider jump out a safety and my unit blew up. That vendor would buy my a new unit. regardless of the age of the unit, the hurt comes from not having a job or a bad rep.

    My advice, record everything, do it right and inform the customer, if you cant fix it before you leave lock it out or pull the fuses

    And the strange thing is. The customer will pay you to do that.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Fan was eventually going out on overload. The maintenance guy would notice it and reset high pressure and walk away. When I pulled the motor all of the oil was leaked our of it.

    As others have said that is a call you need to make, supply houses are generally open the next day here
    No schrader? Holy crap...this is why it pays to hang out here!

    Anyone have a picture of this tee handy?

    It is my understanding that any safety switch by law can not have a valve in line to isolate it from the system, thus no core in the schrader fitting. Having said that I have seen cores in on some systems.

    I was a young lad.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    Manitowoc didn’t have a Core in their Fan Cycle Control & if performing warranty works they would not cover the cost of Refrigerant to replace the Fan Cycle. They stipulated a Pinch Off Tooll must be used.
