    So I made the ultimate rookie mistake today

    Doing a compressor/heat exchanger change out on a -87 ultra low today, warrenty job for Thermo Fisher, everything changed out yesterday, tripple evac and on the pump over night. Both stages holding under 500, charge stage 2 with1oz propane and 13oz 508b, ok, charge stage 1 with 21oz 404a..ok, go to startup and comp runs for 5 sec and trips breaker....wtf recheck all my wiring, start electrics, etc (all new obviosly) all is good... wtf, look at comp nameplate Arrrrrgggggg 115v comp in 208 unit.. bastards sent the wrong one and I didnt catch it... in my defence the packing slip said 208v compressor.....oh well all billable to thermo fisher under warrenty... lesson learned though bah
