    Early in my career I ran into a similar situation on a small strip center. I was cleaning condenser coils on the slit systems. I had already done about six, so I was in the routine. Turned off the disconnect, removed the screw on the top and the controls cover, reached in to disconnect the condenser fan wiring and BAM. Let me tell you, to this day that is the worst shock I have ever received.

    That was about 8 years ago. And to this day, I will always check voltage and discharge a capacitor before I touch it.

    Sort of looks like to me that one guy is paying for BOTH apartments. One is piggybacked

    I was in A/C class when the unit shut down. For the classroom. I climbed into ceiling to find WAY too many wires and disconnects. I left it to someone else, figuring I'd get zapped...Took all of five minutes for one of the other kids to fall through the ceiling, and a good 20 minutes until a guy got hit...But with 440! DAMN. Good call on my part, I'd say...You'd think the CLASSROOM CEILING would be safe...Nah, they had STUDENTS working on it after all...

    One trick I use is to connect hot and neutral if I have to pull power to something. This way if it goes live for any reason the breaker (should) trip. Been hit too many times not to do it.

    POCO trucks around here all have bumper stickers that read "It's not dead unless it's grounded."
