    What's the biggest junk hole you've walked into?

    So, I currently find myself at an old Sears in NJ about 2.5 hrs from home.
    There's 4 older Trane Voyagers from the early 90s.
    The current diagnostics go as follows-
    Unit 1-1 grounded compressor, both circuits flat, busted condenser fan mount and blade, melted line wiring and a bad disconnect (L3 will not close)
    Unit 2-both compressor contactors melted, one circuit flat, the other low on gas and bad condenser fan motor.
    Unit 3-low on gas due to leak on condenser coil.
    Unit 4-grounded compressor.

    Why oh why do people wait this long to do anything? Now I'm gonna be up here for days fixing everything.........
    Huff.........just a hot roof rant.

    "how long until it's fixed?" "WHAT?, THAT'S WAY TOO MUCH!". "I can give you half now".

    Because its sears, a giant vortex of awfulness. The more puzzling thing is how is Sears still in business? Can we just get it over with and put them out of their misery already?

    I know, how are they still carrying the name? they must be hanging on by a thread. i think we have a sears hardware about 50 miles south of here. even 10 years ago they were dying. it's like the stones, still hang'n in there.

    That's funny. Which will die first, Sears or the Rolling Stones? What the hell, let's make it interesting and add Ozzy to the list too.

    They have a guy but he only does maitenance guy stuff like filters, belts, coil cleaning and the occasional fan motor.
    I'm headed to another one of their stores tomorrow, hopefully it's in a little bit better shape.

    Yep, and they're still floating a lot of K-Mart stores too aren't they?

    Made out much better today. A roof full of Trane Intelepacs. Much nicer and easier work then yesterday.
    Tomorrow I have to work on a roof full of older Sunliners with Bristol tandems. Last time I was at this place grounded compressors outnumbered locked ones lol.
