    Can you troubleshoot this tech?

    An HVAC guy working on the electric of a WIFreezer evaporator tells me that the compressor in the basement is seized,"don't waste your time just write them your estimate,you know refrigerant and water don't mix,right.."(Basement was flooded)
    This is another company tech that works for the building owner and I was there for the business owner.Anyway I got the "seized" compressor running.
    The question is..What do you think he was doing in that WI freezer at that moment?
