When a straight cool condenser of any size is replaced, is it always necessary to replace the old units whip and disconnect..if so ..what would have to be wrong with existing whip for tech to have to replace it ( some sort of code upgrade which does not allow existing electric whip to be used with new condenser?..

If the wire inside the whip isn't the proper size to carry the max amp draw of the compressor.
It also makes a nicer, neater looking job.How tall are you Private???!!!!

sometimes disconnect needs to be changed from non-fused to fused to meet code. if whip is whooped it is easier and better looking to just change it.

Even if the original whip is properly sized, it just looks muck nicer connecting a new whip to a new unit. also shows you're not cutting corners to pinch a buck, as a whip is in-expensive.If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
