    more imformation

    Ok sorry about the spell check thing being a tech noone is looking at your spelling just able to understande it. Well I just got a hold of my buddy and he thinks that it a bad compressor(compressor valves). The first day we install had 17 degree spread 90 degree room temp and a 73 degree discharge from the closes vent to the blower. She call the 2nd day being too hot still I check it out 15 deg spread 84 room temp 69 discharge today I went over 80 room temp 67 discharge which is 13 degree outside temp avg 95 deg. Suction pressure is between 80 to 72. Clean the blower and check the fan speed(which it was running on high). He will not be back off vaction until Saturday. I do not install these things all the time (1st year tech) how often these are bad from the start. How I got involve I work with this guy and he said want some extra cash help him with this job and if there trouble check it out now I feel responseable for it. He want me to pull out the old ref. vac. it out for a couple a hours then put fresh ref. just in some case that something got into the system. By that time he will be back and then if that does not work we will install a new condenser unit.

    Very unlikely!

    How nice, install a new one... with no real facts as to why!?

    Wow you are so far off I don’t know where to start

    You guys installed it how deep of a vacuum did you pull?

    What is your superheat?

    Pull out refrigerant and put new in just in case????
    Maybe bad compressor??????
    You are only measuring the "split" nothing else
    What did manual j say you needed??????
    How do you know the blower should be on high???
    Wtf like I said I don’t know where to start

    Man no offence but you guys need to stay away from this stuff until you learn how to do it

    And as far as a tech not needing to know how to spell well that’s just plain crazy
    Yes people do need to be able to make it out and I am not as good at spelling as I would like to be but there is spell check and dictionaries


    NOW DO NOT GO AND GET ALL PISSED OFF BECAUSE YOU ARE A HACK
    STICK AROUND AND LEARN THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO DO IT
