    Here are some pictures of the problem area. As you can see the tape is falling off the lower cutout. The upper cutout still covered by tape is about the same size. Both were leaking air like a sieve.
    I noticed the oily film soon on the tape right away and cleaned it up. After a day of use it was back. It seems to be coming from a copper pipe fitting.

    Thanks for all the opinions.

    Oh Boy, Have you paid them yet? Unless you want to feel real bad I wouldn't post any more pics. Don't pay them and tell them to come and get it.

    That is ugly. I like the p trap with the tail above the condensate pan, not to mention the beautiful sheet metal fit up. Was the installer's station wagon burning oil and on bald tires?
    Licensing laws are tough, and it's about time.

    Unfortunately they have been paid. I used a local company that has been in business for quite a few years. The installers however were young, early twenties I'd guess.
    Based on the pictures, what specific problems should I ask them to fix? mam123, can you elaborate on the problem with the trap? Thanks

    If they have been paid post pictures of the complete system and I would say you will come up with a pretty good list to go over with them.

    I believe I would have the owner come out and look at this garbage. My boss would give us our pink slips is we did **** like that. You should have them fab up a new coil cabinet or buy a new one made specific for the coil you have. Reclaim all the refrigerant, reinstall the coil in the new cabinet, repipe and pressure test followed by a pump down. Then they should figure a way to redo the drains. You definately should not need to pay more than what you already have for such a crappy installation.

    Don't let them try retaping it.

    Who ever they send over to fit it, show these post to them.

    Thanks for all the great information. I'm clear on the problems with the sheetmetal and refrigerant. Can someone explain what's wrong with the drainage? mam123 alluded to the P trap and tail being too high. I'd like to get all my ducks in a row before I bring the owner back out to repair it.
    Thanks again.
