    Why no cool?

    Here is a local hair salon we picked up. Can you guess what kinda problems they have. All to save room.

    My camera batteries died before I could get the best shots there is seven more behind me crammed in a corner. I had to lay on another condenser to work on it.

    What a surprise, seeing Goodmans installed in such an unprofessional way. I bet he got a good deal!

    At least the service panels are accessible
    Big leaps get you there faster, small steps keep you there longer.

    Yeah they left the screws out in between the units, how thoughtful.

    A new compressor in one of those? Tail light warranty.
    Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

    Hmm installation manual

    the last installation manual i looked at had a little word in it called clearance.

    In a piece of junk unit such as a Goodman like that, I would change the compressor, I'd swap out the whole unit if I could.

    It looks like they had about 2 more inches to the wall. I guess they didn't put it all the way against the wall because that would have affected the airflow.

    Can you say: "high head"?

    I see the problem - they didn't caulk the gap between the wall and the unit.

    That would suggest that the installer could read and if he could, could he read english. and what clearance are you talking about, I keep my coffee at least 6" away from my lunch box so as not to knock it over, ain't that enough clearance.
