    Sorry, I got a bit confused with your words you are saying, I hope that you are saying that you CAN NOT ice a system up with a simple overcharge of an air conditioning system. Right?
    Of course. <g> Going back to read my own words, I realized I omitted "or not" as the balance to the word "whether". My grammatical bad. Hope NormChris will go easy with the shillelagh.

    I’ve been a member of RSES for the last 15 years, earned a CM, am studying for my CMS in heat pumps, and my only regret is not joining much earlier. Service technicians that laugh at RSES members are either “some” union people, and other service technicians that have either arrived at their total knowledge point and are perfect in their execution of their craft, or people that simply don’t know any better, a sad lot just the same.
    I am working toward CM, what I consider a high water mark for certification. After that I'll move onto studying for CMS.
    Here in Texas unions are rare for HVAC techs. I'll have to agree for others to turn down an opportunity to better themselves in their chosen field seems indicative they believe they've arrived and there's no further need to push on deeper. "Resting on one's laurels", so to speak. Always treacherous territory, that.

    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.

    The original question posted by Hsteiner on page one of this thread has already been answered I think to everyone’s satisfaction.

    My comments were directed to airworx. He didn't seem to be satisfied with previous explanations.


    But, please comment on my above comments because I love a good debate of refrigeration principles or operation…………………………….

    I haven't challenged you to a debate of refrigeration principles.

    By the way, I think it's somewhat disengenuous to sign off "Respectfully Submitted" after having taken pot shots.

    I think that a simple overcharge of a system would not cause an ice up, but a system would definitely still get iced up despite an overcharge,

    RSES,

    Those are tough tests, I have been fortunate enough to pass a few of those,

    Dear Westcoast refer man,

    Regarding your previous re-post:

    “By the way, I think it's somewhat disengenuous to sign off "Respectfully Submitted" after having taken pot shots.”

    I would have to agree with that statement as well. It would be disingenuous (spelling corrected) to sign off with ‘Respectfully Submitted” after taking pot shots, but then again, that’s not what I did or do.

    First and foremost, I stand by every one of my posts here on this thread, as well as for this forum. That’s not to say that all my posts are correct and accurate, for I’m confident they are not, I’m sure there are holes in my HVAC knowledge and education; I just don’t know where they’re at. That’s not bragging, that’s just a fact.

    When someone kindly, or unkindly for that matter, points out one of my flaws or holes in my HVAC knowledge or education, and God knows I have many, I stand corrected. I don’t try to explain why my wrong answers are right, or simply take “pot shots’ at them, and never answer any direct questions, or comments they may post.

    As for Airworx, I think his only comment regarding his most previous posts has centered around the point that he feels he was misquoted on this thread because he qualified his statement of an iced up system as a “refrigeration” rather than an “air conditioning “ system, if I’m not mistaken.

    As far as “debating” is concern, I feel this is not an ugly, knock down, drag out fight, but rather a great old fashion way of looking at, not only a single persons point of view, but rather having the ability to gather information, knowledge, and actual hands on experience from many points of view of the same problem.

    Now, for the matter at hand, what exact post do you think I used to take a “pot shot” at you? And before you answer this question, I’d like to say just one more thing.

    Seriously here, if I have inadvertently offended you here on this thread, may I say, that was never my intention, and even though I did not do so with any malice or intent, may I humbly ask for your forgiveness my friend, and I do not use the word friend lightly.

    Very Respectfully Submitted,
    John J. Dalton

    PS: And my above signoff was meant word for word, and verbatim.

    Dear Top mechanic,

    Of the RSES tests you’ve taken, which ones have you passed and been certified in?

    Dear Hvacpope,

    Can’t tell by your short post if you’re being serious or facetious, which would it be friend? And by the way, I have a hard enough time with this profession as it is, and would not even consider running for president. Besides, I would never be elected based upon the fact that I would have to admit that I’m a Christian, believe in every single word, and scripture in the bible, that I think that Israel is, in fact, God’s chosen people, even though they sometimes screw up with the best of us, and that I can not, and will not abide by anyone who wants to tear down this country, its not perfect, but it’s the land of the free, and the home of the brave, and lastly, I’m sorry to say, it use to be, the country that honored God. The bumper sticker says: GOD BLESS AMERICA, well I say, look around friend………GOD HAS BLESSED AMERICA, NOW ITS TIME FOR AMERICA TO BLESS GOD!

    Ahhhh……..sorry, I seemed to have jumped up on my soap box, I’m down now, so thank you regarding your post…..I think.

    Respectfully Submitted,
    John J. Dalton

    “I'll answer it! A pound is a pound. Its volume is different for the both objects.”

    Although you’re right that the densities of these two items are different, the feathers, I’m afraid, still do weight approximately 33% more than the gold does.

    Remember, things aren’t always as they may first appear………….


    Explain to me how 1lbs of feathers weigh 33% more than 1lbs of gold! To me what you are saying is crock!

    One pound of anything weighs the same as anything else that weighs a pound, if you are using the same type of pound measurement.If you are not, then of course it doesn't, but it makes no sense to measure two objects with two different tape measures, and if you did, you would need to use a conversion factor and then they would come out to the same.Anyway, so a pound is a pound is a pound and it realy is that simple,

    Hvacpope-hee hee that's dam funny stuff.
    Paul Harvey is indeed alive, however he does not sound well, sounds 1,000 years old. he starts off each show with a ten minute commerical, only does a half hour now. good Day!


    I have seen heat pumps work badly when overcharged?
    especially when the dip switches on the defrost control have not been set up.
    If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

    “Crock”…….hummmmmmmm, your saying that I’m wrong, inaccurate, and a robber of the truth….. ….please read the second post from the top on page eight(8) of this thread and post again.

    By the way, it seems that my original question, as my apparent knowledge, and your assumption of me, may not be as simple as you’ve made them appear on this thread my friend.

    CMS............

    Dear Top mechanic,

    CMS in controls, it would appear that my original evaluation of your control and economizer knowledge was correct and accurate, based upon your CMS status. I wonder what the service technicians on this forum would say to you, if they knew that less than 2,100 people in the world have ever obtained the CM certification, let alone the less than 400 people of the world, that have obtained the CMS certification in controls, such as yourself. I’ll bow to your dedication to acquiring knowledge in the HVAC/R my friend.

    I am correctly studying to pass the upcoming introduction of the heat pump CMS certification test due out anytime now. Like you I know, I’ve been studying a long time toward it.

    Respectfully Submitted,
    John J. Dalton CM
