    Drove 1 hour to look at this mess. This person told me that she worked for an apartment community and obtained the condenser through them. She said she has her CFC certification but realized she was in "over her head" when she couldn't get the condenser brazed in. There was alot of water in the lines and she knew "this was bad for the system".
    3 ton existing air handler. 2 ton heat pump condenser...
    Its a Trane, but I dont think its up for this job!

    Hmm Am I missing something?

    I thought the little piping loopees were to prevent floodback of the compressor or something. I usualy see them in a big ball strapped to the side of the wall!!!

    NOW I can see the pictures but sure don't see any Choo Choos!

    Looks like some kind of Nordyne.

    The high tech filter rack and those twizzlers for line sets are out of this world. Is she like queen of the trailer park?

    when I saw those pictures I was in the middle of swallowing my pepsi. Needless to say, I blew pepsi out of my nose and all over the keyboard. I laughed so hard I farted, then sh*t myself. Yellow fluid ran down my leg and now lies in a puddle under my $200.00 wet computer chair. If she is looking for a job, she shouldn't have any trouble finding one. That tubing reminds me of the old systems that used the complete liquid line as a metering device. You would see a huge coil of tubing strapped to the joists above your head in basements.

    With the filter right on the coil there is no dirt protection for the drain

    Talking

    Pump it down,pull the evaporator and clean it.
    Blower is dirty,pull and clean
    re-run new line -set strap unistrut on brick.
    Level condenser ,install a/c disconnect
    build filter box above coil,or seal and let draw from door.
    Seal that hole that the line set is coming through.

    Check thermostat for calibration/maybe cob-webs.

    And That ain't no CHOO-CHOO<Trane>

    Cut her losses...put a $50 in it and roll it down a hill!

    Loonie, I told you Trane was on the roller coaster track headed down. Looks like it has about bottomed out!
