    Wire is cheaper than the $ 10 fuse!

    Should I even ask about the yellow wire with electrical tape on it?

    Good think that green wire is larger than the wires on the terminals. You wouldn't want the green wire to let the smoke out first.

    See this kind of s@it occasionly, looks good for the supposed tech. on the invoice and bill,(replaced burnt wire and replaced fuse). Looks bad for the company,(HEADLINE- airconditioning mechanic electrocuted). Seems like overkill, but always use your meter to check from chassis to ground. Knocked across the roof once,probably save my life a few more.
    Damn phosgene
