Cause a small distraction for him. You might want to share YOUR STORY with them.

I spent a lot of time studying for the ICE/NATE also.
Thanks for the tips on the compressors, I'm still learning so anything I'm offered I try to retain.
Catch ya next time!

I started as a maintenance man and NC Programmer at a radiator plant. One day we needed a 7.5 ton system replaced, and hired a local contractor. They did such a crappy job, I thought I could do better, so I went to School and earned a second AAS in HVAC. But instead of going to work for a residential or light commercial service Co.; I lucked out and met a man who had worked for Carrier International for 15years on Large Chillers. I went to work for him, and 3 days later answered my first service call on a 450 ton, 20F 17 Carrier machine at 2 am. BTW it had cold oil and was lifting the shaft seal. 18 years later I am still working on Process Machines in the chemical plants, and learned the AC part on the way. Freon, Suva, Propylene, Ammonia, and Absorption. I rebuild Centrifugal, Screws, and Recips. Most are open drive, electric motor and gearbox, or steam turbine. Hence the name OPENDRIVE.

This field is so huge you cant possibly know it all. My specialty is large process chillers. When someone calls me and asks a question about process chillers I happily answer, the only thing I ask in return is that they will someday answer my phone call. I had to actually do that one day while working on my dad's Infinity Split System. My greatest fear is when another mechanic tells me he knows it all. I guage the success of my day after 18 years of doing this by 3 rulers: Is the Customer Happy? Is the machine fixed? and most of all.....Did I learn something today?

I have been looking for a way to get in contact with Site moderator "dad". I was asked to contact him about my situation with Pro Membership acceptance. How can I go about contacting him?

Good way or just any way? I've seen several of the options. I suggest you contact one of the moderators and ask them. Just click on one of them and private message them.
