    Service tech left a few minutes ago. Replaced fan start capacitor. Condenser is purring again. Oh well, can't get it condemned this go around. Pressure reading 69/208 when he left. He also showed me the electrical tester was reading 1.3, well within the 1.0 to 2.0 spec shown on the condenser label.

    Morning, sun partially filtered by neighbor's oak tree. Afternoon, mostly shade.

    depending on the shade the 208 could be high.. if he switched the fan did he play around with the blade location?

    He didn't touch the fan. It was 81*, 63%RH, partly cloudy at 10:30 this morning.

    Excuse me.... the unit was turned off at 2PM yesterday when I noticed the fan motor not running. It was 80* inside when the service tech got here this morning. He checked the suction when he got the fan running before I had a chance to get inside and close the windows. Once I did that, it started getting much cooler inside and reached the 75* setpoint within 20 minutes or so after he left.

    Are you telling me he should have hung around until the temp inside got down to my setpoint of 75 before checking the pressure?
