We could have a small coil like that replaced in 4 hours. I've replaced ones iced and damaged like that in the past. Everyone was happy at the end of the day.
    Good point

    Big ice cube. What caused it and what other damage did the ice cause?
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    found out that the freezer used to be a blast freezer using it as a regular walk in freezer now. 2 evap's in it so the other one kept up. The defrost clock faulted on the one in the picture.
    This place is not making enough money so they chose to just leave it as it is. Once it falls from the ceiling and wrecks everything else they maybe they will do something about it.
    Some people over their heads I guess.

    That is what I was thinking. They do that to us all the time. And now it's an emergency.

    Couldn't you disable the condensing unit for that evaporator (if it has its own) or close off its liquid line valve?

    2 evaps in the walk in freezer. It used to be a blast freezer.
    Box temp was at -10F. As the other condensing unit and evap was still operating normal.

    As a point of safety I would remove all power to that coil and find a way to remove it from the refrigeration system. If left the way it is some one could get a bad shock or if it breaks free they loose all the refrigerant.
