    this is a good one.

    My boss sent me on a service call today, one where the fire service responded to a call and the ANSUL went off.

    On Friday another service tech from our company installed a new motor, so that was the first thing to blame buy the customer.

    I was told to replace the motor with a new one, I did that and turned it on and heard weird sounds and then sparks. That is when I looked under the hood and found this.

    I think this was the cause of their problem and not our new motor.

    No they are NOT , may not been so bad if they had covers, but without covers, HELL NO!.

    What gets me is, no one found it. NOT the customer, NOT the fire service, NOT the cleaning crew, Not the fire protection system specialists, but it must be the tech who installed the new motor.
