    As far as I know before the overhaul the chiller had oil return problems, but I'm not sure what else was behind the decision to overhaul. I know that it is a bid job. We do not have a contract with the customer.

    I agree that there are a lot of unknowns. I was hoping there might be an easy answer or something that would ease my mind about whether what I'll call the mechanical overhaul part was done correctly.

    As far as water temperatures and flow, I think that it is possible that they might have something to do with the problem considering the cold oil temperatures and oil return problems that existed before the overhaul.

    Regarding the open forum, I apologize for the depth that this is getting into. For what it is worth I am an apprentice with Trane factory service and sometimes I don't feel like I get the best answers from some of the other technicians. Therefore I've come here seeking more understanding...but I have to get my post count up to post in the Pro Forums, right?
    Ahhh you're finally breaking free from being Tranewashed, get away while you can!

    i used to work for trane and left to work for JCI...everybody can just be quiet about that for awhile .

    i really like trane equipment but the office i worked for wasn't working out for me anymore.

    why are you so pissed at trane? every post is about shooting trane down. if you have a problem with the local office, then fine, some aren't so great to outside people. if you are ticked about the equipment, then fine, but give it a little rest here....we get it. post positive stuff. if you are going to post negative stuff, then be specific.

Comment deleted for lack of civility Oddly enough, I know of another manufacturer with that same issue........

    Does it rhyme with JORK?
    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    I haven't checked the forum in a couple of days. The responses to my thread really piled up.

    I don't know every detail about the job in question and I don't have all the info that the older techs have at work.

    I posted b/c I was interested in learning more about what I remember about the job and the concerns that I have about it. I appreciate the insight and thoughts with regards to what I posted.

    Thanks
