    I didn't read that the R22 unit was properly recovered by at least a 608 Type 1 certification holder. Did I miss that somewhere? Or are you assuming that was done.

    Did that compressor come with a speed board or did you have to build one yourself?

Also, a little humility would go a long ways. It's a bad idea to knock us guys when you're trying to milk us for some info. Maybe you could try giving your EPA Refrigeration Handling Certificate number to one of them to prove you are legally doing this.

    All that aside your local HVAC professionals are trying to actually make a living and have no time to play Mr. Wizard with unknown callers. Why not make a service appointment with a local professional, at least he can get a good laugh and a service call out of the experience.

    Not in my home state of Wisconsin you can't. We're too much like California up here. People go over into Minnesota and buy it though.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

    But what about the F22 window unit he hacked?

    I wonder how that window unit got "busted up"??? Maybe his wife\significant other, tried dropping it on his head from the 3rd story window????

    While we have no evidence that he vented refrigerant, he did state that the old unit was a junker.

    Is it at all possible that the unit was empty before he laid his hands on it?


    H**L. I've legally vented HOSES with more gas in them than a 5000 BTUH window shaker.

    Trying to recover, what, 10 ounces of refrigerant from a unit like that is a friggen JOKE.
