    Why don't you just sell them a new Chiller.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !
    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !

    Its definitely time for a new chiller. At this point the customer wants me to open it up and check it out. I was told the chiller was just over hauled in Jan of this year.

    I believe its a sidewinder, hoping to remove second stage inlet guide vane plate to gain access to the impeller. ( I am sure that's not the proper name)

    Is this the same one that was suspected of being overcharged awhile back?
    Superheat, that must be REALLY hot.

    Im going to be honest because thats the way I am . Problem is your not going to like it .
    If you need a teardown manual for a sidewinder you shouldnt be doing it..... period . Your customer is paying for a qualified competent tech, and you need a manual to show you how to do it ????? Were not talking rocket science here no electronic wizardry just an old sidewinder . Sorry if I offended you but I call a spade a spade .

    Some things need to be said, and some things are pure conjecture. To be the first remark you've made in this particular thread about a situation that you can't possibly be fully aware of, this is about the most arrogant statement that I've ever heard made. At first, I couldn't believe what I read, and then I realized who it was from. There's times that someone needs to be pointed towards getting assistance (I'm not sure this is one of them), and there's times that someone needs some reinforcement that they're going the right direction (I think this is one of them). I'm sure you didn't have either someone to help you, or at the very least a service manual as a guide the first time you ever did a teardown on one of these, did you? Of course you did - that's how you figured out that it ain't rocket science.

    If you're going to engage in public speaking on a Friday night, you might want to consider not drinking at the same time. It's detrimental to your reputation.
    I know 2 or 3 other guys that work for Trane that have this same attitude. I've also known the same from York, Carrier, and McQuay. I personally wouldn't let a mechanic into a machine that I owned unless he had a service manual - I don't care how good he thinks he is.
