Customer calls me: "All the door wall doors are sweating water all over the floor and the freezer doors are frozen shut."
All of them? Did you check the circuit breaker? I labeled it for you.
All the breakers are on.
When did this problem start?
Right after the electricians left.
What were there electricians there for? How many times do I have to tell you to never let anyone else touch any of my equipment?
They installed new LED lighting in the cooler and the freezer.
And then all the doors started sweating and freezing?
So I get over there and check for power and so forth for a while. The heater breaker wire has both power and an amp draw on it. Then I pull the wiring trough covers and find . . . . no wires in them. Empty.
Wth? How can that be? How would Anthony wire a door and frame without terminating in the trough? This makes no sense.
So then I poked my head up inside the box further and find all the door and frame wires neatly diked off on the forward side of the trough.
So I call the owner and get the electrician's number.
Why did you do this Mr. Electrician?
We're not electricians - we are sign guys. We just did the lighting. The door heaters have nothing to do with us.
Well; who connected the new LED lights to the heater circuit? Was that you or somebody else?
Oh! That was us - but that doesn't matter. We do that all the time and never have a problem.
Well; you do now. Do you want to come fix it or do you want me to?
You do it - we don't want to pay for it. We hardly made any money on that job as it is.
Did the customer pay you yet?
No; not yet.
What to make a small wager that they Never pay you?
They wouldn't do that.
I think they might - after they get my bill.
You're going to bill them?
I'm pretty sure my company is going to insist on it.
Wouldn't this be covered under the warranty?
Yes it would; the warranty . . . from you.
The LED lights are working, right?
Well; then this has nothing to do with us. Those wires don't mean anything anyway. All we did was the LED lights. And you said they are working, right?
I guess you're right - I have to go now. Have a nice day.
