I found a leak today on a 3D with leaky head gasket. Another leak was found at the demand cooling solenoid valve.
A guy came out and said that since the demand cooling was calling on a cool day as we had today, 74F, there is probably a bad valve or more wrong with the unit.
They are talking about replacing the compressor this week.
I told em I wanted to replace the head gasket and have a plave plate nearby, if needed! And ... if the unit has scoring or seriously bad valve plate ... then and only then ... consider replacing the unit.
I am being overly cautious? Or am I just not up to speed on these particular units yet?
My philospohy is this; "Whatever it needs, do it. But only do what is best for the equipment and customer."
Opinions? Thoughts? Criticisms? Belches .... Coughs... dumb thoughts.......
(if I dont hear from Popa Dice ... I'll certainly be dissapointed)
