    GE condensing unit age determination???

    Can anyone help with an age on this GE condensing unit?

    Model BGTA924H1L
    Serial 212615

    My understanding is that the "6" in the serial number is the year, and the "15" is the month.

    But, how do you know what decade (1976, 1986, 1996, etc.)?

    Thanks.

    G E hasn't been made since 83 or so. When Trane bought them.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    There aren't 15 months in a year

    I'd guess late 60s early 70s for the BGTA. I don't think I have a GE S/N cheat sheet. If it ends in 6, gotta be 76. Certainly not 86, Trane owned them then.
