    Dumb Weird & Stupid.

    Copper line set=Crappy job & Leaking freon, Gas line = Home hit by lighting ran in through 110v pwr wire (on propane). Homeowner did not know, but he converted over to Natural gas after his LP bill got to high. Lighting hit 7 months before. House should have blown up. Gas Water heater was in crawl with this leak!.. Capacitors = just stupid!

    Yep...come across that stuff daily. Last good one was a contactor with the line and load side connected together. First thing the owner said to me was that he was told he needed a defrost timer.

    Sorry, These have been in my phone for a few years. I hated to get rid of them so I figured I would post them. I have a few left, but I will hold off for a while. haha. I have some where people (ie. Women 'I hope') leave "fun items" out on the coffee tables ect, and where another man had a "plant growing operation business" in his home and he could not understand why it was hot and humid and the a/c could not keep up.

    Many contactors only break one leg of power. If I only have one that breaks both I tap line and load together on one side...

    Or were you referring to something else? Certainly not both legs connected line and load!!!???

    BINGO!!! Both legs connected together and contactor coil disconnected.
    This was on a walk-in beer cooler.
