    But the bad news is, after putting a new run cap the compressor died about 24 hours later, it appears to be the original one.
    Who assumes responsibility (you or complex management) to replace the compressor/unit/system in your situation? Just curious. That's too bad the compressor died, but I think, if it was the original, it did its time!

    How did you single your unit out of that mess?

    The complex does, and the one smart thing anyone did was to put the apt. number on the units.

    Gotta love it when you're paying to cool someone else's apartment too. Best is when they've connected the thermostats to the wrong units outside as well.

    Its all about the bottom line with these apartment communities. Sad part is they are not going to change them untill they kick the bucket.

    Crooked pipes.

    [QUOTE=MichaelPaladin;1906914]I just recently moved into this apartment complex, I never really looked at the HVAC equipment. That is until mine quit working, Found my unit and this mess. And yes those are my gages on my unit.

    That is an insult to all HVAC Mechs & Techs
    Whoever installed those units should be banned from working in this field.
    He would be better off designing Wonderland Rides.
