    I had the same thing Saturday. If it wasn't for hacks i wouldnt have made nearly as much.
    Last company did same thing, next day not cooling. Left cover off contactor, duct and electrical taped 2 caps in boxes. I showed the customer exactly what they did and he signed up with us on the spot when i showed him my work. He had a bad fan motor and last company said they didnt know what was wrong.

    wow!! At least the 1 I went to last week had them out of the box. It was just flapping around. He didn;t have the zip tie bandit with him that day so he just let it blow in the wind.

    Whats the deal with people leaving them in the boxes anyways?
    I mean, I think it would be a pain to put the connectors on like that, instead of just taking it out of the box....?

    Why didn't they replace the contactor when they did the caps?

    I don't know. I had to replace the defrost board, saw the mess, and corrected. I replaced the contactor due to age and the points were arced over.
