    I really am not given a chance to actually service/repair these units because there a lot of arrogant self indulged ******** I work with that try to be heroes and look like a superstars any chance they get. Meanwhile, I witnessed one of the so called "top mechanic" I work with blow thermal overloads cuz he wired a simple dual speed motor backwords. Pathetic, if you ask me but whatever thats how it goes in this industry. And then try to justify it by saying " the manufacturer labeled it wrong". YEAH OK! Anyway, I know mistakes happen own up to it or ask someone else for help it won't hurt.

    sorry for the rant

    so......

    any help?
    But there is no ego here.

    Why do you need to know my qualifications? I just don't see the need. I feel that I don't have to answer your question about my qualification for a number of reasons:

    1) I don't think I will be applying for pro.

    2) I don't think you'll help me get a new job

    3) I am not giving out advice on HVAC.

    So, I'm sorry but I'm not going to answer your question.
    That's because six months at trade school doesn't really count for much.

    I did my time in the industry and I worked very ard to get my degree and certs. You guys on here think paper means nothing but it does in the real world trust me. I know how to turn a wrench not just a " textbook tech". I strongly believe that changing filters and belts does not make you a good mechanic. It's hog wash. Finding out why the machine is broken, or why did the comp. trip out, or why it's not cooling is what makes a good mech. Repairing the machine and finding out why certain things happen. Honestly if you're telling me you have to time examine a machine while you're PMing it then I'd think that you'd probably get one machine done a day. Which means in my company you're out the door.

    The workers here know what type of person I am and they don't want me to excel because they know I will succeed at anything and the company will count on me rather than them. They are threatened by me. But that's ok because trust me. My drive and my work ethics will get me where I need to be.
    Whaaaatever. This is very good stuff.

    OP

    I believe it was Socrates that once said

    True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing!

    This applies to most top guys with the exception of
    Willis carrier and ruben trane!

    I have to agree with everyone else. PMs make you a better tech and gets you more work. How do you think we find all those cracked heat exchangers and bad contactors? If you are pming a piece of equipment correctly you will be diagnosing problems with equipment before you get a service call. That is why it is called Preventive Maintenance. When you are changeling a belt for example you can check the the bearings and end play in the motor. Also you can check the pulleys or shives for wear. These are just a few of the issues I see on a service call of a unit that was not properly pmed.

    If you are so great why have you not been promoted?
    You still have not listed your qualifications and experience.
    So you do not need to listen and do what your told?
    You could have lost job opportunities all ready thanks to this site. All because of your attitude.
