    When you say trouble, do you mean that they need help with electrical troubleshooting or with actually reading the diagram symbols and tracing the circuit?

    If they will be working on small Package or split systems you could copy or scan some of the IOM's that have the diagrahms. You could also take photos of control compartments and pictorial and ladder schematics. Sounds as if someone needs to have inhouse training with their guys. Also have them look for a copy of Modern Refrigeration. Usually at most supply houses.

    Its the electrical troubleshooting that they need help with. They know the book work of it. But when they open up a cover and they have to trace the circut through all the controls is were they get lost. Trying to help them now before a/c season.

    someone with good knowledge should be able to teach them to navigate schematics rather quickly, IF they understand the symbols, and how the devices operate. for example, normally open/closed and how they are represented. the thing with schematics is, once someone shows you how they work, a light bulb goes off and makes it easy. you just need that one guy.....shouldnt take more than a half hour if they truly know the book stuff.

    I think one of the problems young guys have today is that the wiring diagrams on residential and commerial are too detailed. These guys are conceptulist,elementary
    (ladder) diagrams work. They always worked better for me and I am an old guy.

    I never had that problem, its the other way around, not enough details, worst with ANSI schematics and thats going to be the norm, ladders or pictorials are things of the past.
