    I was on top of the condensor removing the condensor fan that had broken the bracket and fallen into the condensor. Me, my apprentice, our tools and or vans got a good oil bath.

    Ha! that was 1/4 full of floor dry, old oil filters and rain water from an oil line rupture the previous summer. The apprentice had quite a day removing all the trash. Not a very well kept piece of equipment.

    Customer on this. Best I can tell is that the dirty coil, broken condensor fans and years of neglect finally caught up. The vibrasorb may have gotten a little too hot when it was originally installed and was weak. I'm not sure what the head pressure was when it let go but the HP was set at 300.
