    If that was an aircraft would you fly in it? I sure wouldn't.

    Wow. Just replace the board with a OEM board and be done with it. That isn't even a good temporary fix.

    nope, not standard practice, not normal, not safe, and not recommended!

    I love how all the spare speed wires are just stuffed up into the wire bundle, ready to fall and short onto something... you've only got high speed... it's gonna be drafty come winter time, if the heat even comes on!

    I appreciate everyone's responses. I have another company coming out to complete the job, the other company won't even send me an invoice. Thank you again for everyone's expertise.

    They should not expect payment for that (insert your description here)!

    Did they even want to hear/see what was done?

    If an invoice does come, keep photos and refuse to pay it.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    So that was the "permanent" fix? That's hilarious. I might do something like this to get them cooling, but never call it fixed like that. I would actually hot wire the motor to run all the time and the condenser would cycle on and off. This way you won't decide yourself that's its fixed and not call me back out to fix permanently. With the fan running all the time, it will irritate you enough to make sure I get invited back to fix it with correct board.
    I like DIY'ers. They pay better to fix.
