Can't think of everything! It was just a little set screw. That blows dude. Ignorance costs money now or later...

I love carnage like that!
My all time favorite was watching one of my competitors remove a 30 ton package unit from atop a car dealership in NE Philly. The unit tilted to one side when a strap slipped a bit. The door fell off and a disconnected semi hermetic compressor fell out of the unit landing on the owners car. I had originally disconnected the compressor to send it out for a rebuild, the owner in the mean time told us he wanted to wait until next spring. Next spring came and the owner decided he didn't like us anymore. That was a good lesson to learn, we make sure all covers are tight and there are no loose components rattling around inside any units before attaching to the crane.

We had a factory start-up on a Carrier Chiller, he spent 2 days there, about 5 months later, I go out and find burn't wires in pump motors, burn't wires on contactors, burn't breakers, charge gone, guy never tightened any wires Carrier didn't pay for anything, charge gone due to leak, that happens, not holding him responsible for that, but the rest??????

start up is more than throwing the switch. i have found carrier equipment to be notorious for loose screws. especially condensor fan blades. i dont buy the "loosen during shipping" bs.
if it doesnt loosen after 10 years of operation how the heck can it loosen during shipping.

I just did a startup on some Lennox roof tops, 4 of them. Out of the 4 I found 2 pulley set screws loose, one blower wheel hitting the housing, 5 terminals out of all contactors has loose terminals, and I was missing 2 mixed air sensors for the economizers.

Maybe this should happen next if they don't take care of the belt.
