Don't forget the pookie...
Call on a small W/I freezer- An old Hussman condensing unit on the roof. The unit breaker was tripped- reset and BAMMM! Flash and trip.
Took a while to find it, but a feed to the LL solenoid valve from the control panel was connected by a close nipple with plastic bushings on both ends.
There was slack in the wire (#16 THHN) to the coil,but it still wore through the bushing till the hot leg hit the nipple. BOOM!
Took about 20 years, but...
A little pookie stuffed in the hole... might have save the problem.
Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.
I have to ask what is "Pookie"?
I've heard pookie used to describe both silicon caulk or brush on mastic.
“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
― Benjamin Franklin
Yeah, those and some other 'goo'...

If unit breaks down less than every 20 years, its too dang reliable. Need to engineer more weak points for failure to keep service call revenue up!!!! Just kidding.
If you can figger out a way to get the breakdowns on a preprogrammed rotating fill in the slow times schedule you could make all the money just selling the idea. All those weak spots giving way at the same time would cause too many grey hairs.
