    new york condenser fail.

    Company installed this york split about 2 months ago i come to find the problem is the fan blade fell off and damaged the O.D coil in multiple spots losing the charge, this is my 2nd summer doing service and i thought this was just out of the ordinary.

    That sucks.

    To be honest.....I don't check to set screws on new condenser fan on a startup. Maybe I should.

    The only set screws I normally check on a startup or commission are sheaves and couplers.

    well they should be set tight enough from the factory, but it was the easiest O.d coil change ever, but the customer had to wait for the coil to be ordered.

    Hopefully you turned it the proper way when you installed the new one.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    I was wondering why geographical location mattered, LOL. NEW York, not New York. Thought it was going to be a copper theft thread.

    We dont steal much copper here in NY, not much money in it. R22 is the lastest craze.
