I figured this was normal. I see this 3-4 times per year though not this bad. I cleaned it up with a stick and it worked. A digital t-stat will not last 4 monthis in this enviroment. I have tried it, I know. (I need another job).
I used to work on an old ice machine, in a restraunt long ago. I would walk up to the ice machine and start kicking it until all the roaches stopped running out, before I would touch it. I can't seem to remember why it was I wouldn't eat at that restraunt.
that my friends is why i will not do residential again. i have been in a few hoarders houses where i had to climb mount everest in there living room to get to the mechanical closet.or the famous cat lady that had about 300 cats in her house. i was only at cat ladies house about 5 minutes when i told her to have a nice day but i wont work here.
