    If it was me I wouldn`t help him out .It`s obvious he doesn`t want any he hasn`t answered the important questions. He want`s info handed to him without doing leg work.

    Nice to see you back carriermechanic.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Now i was not the mechanic on site that took the readings i had to get them today from him but he is much more experienced then i. and has 18 years with carrier but left about 5 years ago so i trust his readings. he also said that they put an eductor in the skimmer line not sure why that would be needed but they must have had a problem skimming. sorry i for the wait on the readings. im in a rush so i hope i didn't forget anything. o yeah the chw setpoint is 42.

They can do whatever they wish with that information. It would be nice to have some data as far as a good log of the machine when it is operating. Giving us different temps and load % will help a lot. Let us know what they find.
    It dont matter if you been with Carrier 10 years or not, sometimes its not good to give Carrier advice to somebody else to work on a chiller under warranty. And by the way the extra eductor is for low speed, light load oil recovery.

    Looks like you have a .2KW per ton machine. Carrier will return to the top of the heap now!
