Went to a no cooling call the other day, apparently one of our techs had been there days before and replaced the A-coil cause it was leaking. It was a 2nd generation 3 ton Carrier unit which our company has had extensive problems with in the past. This was my first time at this unit i found the unit was overcharged, the tech who was there before me is a menace to society and has a great deal of call backs and is well known for such problems so i took out some R22 and she ran just fine. The compressor was extremely noisy especially for one of these particuliar models. I was doing a amp draw on the comp which turned out to be fine when i noticed that this unit had a 1 power pole contactor but these units have crankcase heaters, found the crankcase heater no longer wired to power. What im wondering is if the 1 power pole contactor ment for a trickle case heater would hurt the compressor which isnt set up for a trickle heater and so make it louder.
Any answer's would be appreciated
