    need your stubby nut driver set for this one!!

    Showed up for this one, could barely open panel on this one, never mind actually look at it. The lineset is actually touching the electrical box on condensing unit making it hard to slide the cover up. I dont get some people. You have to actually TRY HARDER to F up this bad.... There is about 6 inches of clearance from bushes on other side too....

    old 38En's can't believe they're still chugging

    do like everyone else, take the top screw out and bend the door
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I was shocked this one was still running, it DID have a muffler, and accumulator.

    The brazing looked like 2 giant balls of solder.

    I had no issue getting the cover off, but looking at the electrical components inside was next to impossible. I had to look at the capacitor with my mirror.

    I cant wait to replace it and tell em they gotta take the bush down cuz I cant helicopter drop the new one in place.

    I noticed the lower one looks like its had dye put in it. I remember working on those style of units when they were brand new.
    When you do a job, Always make it easier for the next guy, because you may be the next guy working on it.

    yeah, well, about the dye.... I bet its not gonna ruin the warranty on this one! This was my first time out there. I didn't touch these machines before today.

    HO says "I havent had these that long, I dont know why they are giving me trouble....."

    I replied, "HOW? What'd you just buy the house?"

    That seems to be the way most of them I see are installed. Just another reason I don't like Carrier equipment, it seems like most are installed in a way they are a pain to work on.

    thought those old units had compression fittings at the service valves (you know, the ones that always eventually leak)?
    You have to pay your due's before you pay the rent!

    I love that, the HO always says " ya you guys put it in like 2 years ago". Get to the job and its 12 years old.

    I was at a customers that had one of those units and leaking and the compression nut. I was thinking if he calls back that I may use nylog to seal it.
