what dumb@ss put those worm clamps on that carrier, those friggin tube split from one end to the other.
what's with the wire?It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

What were they gonna do then it started to crack at the ends of the tubes?
I'm surprised they didn't pull it out and use JB weld on it.

Probably could have changed the HX in the time it took to put all those clamps on. Just plain stupid.Local 597 Service Fitter

I wonder if the occupants getting headaches had anything to do with this stupid repair. Must not own any red tags

They at least need an energy drink can and high temp silicone under the clamps!

The cover that blew off was the side access panel to the compressors and electrical. Gas line enters thru same cover and so does the combustion exhaust. Also the cover which slides out protecting the gas train and burners blew off into the compressors. Most of the wires were burned up and the control circuit board was blown.
Apparently a prior service company worked on it last winter. It appeared they put aluminum peel and stick duct tape over cracks and then strapped them As for the wire I guess they ran out of straps LOL!
We removed all and installed new exch ,burners,valve,board, comb motor and all."My hands are for sale"
