    armchair quaterbacks to coin a yankee phrase

    I would only add that I would have disconnected the y as I has experienced dickheads turn power back on after I leave and to ensure the comp doesn't try to start


    thats what I would have done would have been able to confirm entire problem on second trip

    You did what you felt you needed to do. It's the beauty of owning your own business. I don't know how many Firestones are in your area and maybe you pissed away some potential commercial customers BUT if they all follow behind you and make their own repairs and adjustments I say screw'm.

    In my neighborhood that ladder would not have even been there the next day.

    Ya get on the job, surely even if the comp is bad, you can check the condenser motor. Then you tell them it needs a motor not sure about the compressor. Here are your options. Change the motor and test the pump, if it works, all done you owe me this much. If it doesn't run, here is cost of new pump. OR you say up front why not change the entire unit now, it is older and may start to cost more that it's worth, here is price on emerg change out, I will start on it right now.

    Get your mind off of dancing against girls behinds.....
    Do I have to come down there.

    Friday afternoon, I am dealing with idiots that I responded to within 10 minutes and could have fixed the unit that day but they told me it was fixed and a 3rd party pays at some later date (maybe). . I have a $5,000 check to pick up and a house to get a final on and a start up. What is your call?

    OR...

    You can say over the phone to your "national middle man", my diagnostic fee is $xx.xx and I need to collect it cash upon arrival. This way you filter out the scums that don't ever pay (sandflea quik stops & restaurants etc..) and you can either take your time for the diagnosis or do it in 5 min.....you get paid the same either way. I think you are probably billing hourly and that is what the underlying problems stem from.

    Same call, go get the 5K, ya already got them other jobs.
    A change out like that doesn't take very long, put off the other stuff, like I said, ya already got those jobs and they are not an emerg. They will drag on for days anyway.

    Your response doesn't surprise me. I have noticed you haven't ever been able to take constructive criticism very well. I bet there have been many many people that could have taught you things (not necessarily hvac) but they witheld because they knew you would argue with them instead of thanking them. See how you are limiting your abilty to learn and get along with the world? Who knows maybe your sour attitude was the reason the counter guy was rude to you. Fix yourself first and the a/c repair will come much eaiser to you.

    Hey Donor>>>you can't get cash from a retail store that has a contract with a 3rd party to call a service company. Has nothing to do with criticism. The first company that came was not called by the 3rd party which was a contract violation . In case you can't read there were two steps require of me. Seeing what was wrong THEN calling the contracted company to go forward with a repair which was not open on Saturday. NOT your program. Why don't you concentrate on doing heat loads for Pizza Hut and why ketchup cose in a small packet ? As you know, other things could be happenig other than the fan motor out http://www.hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthr...threadid=76426

    Hey I was just trying to be helpful, I gave some solid input and you told me I could not read.

    The situation is very clear, you showed up because you felt that you had to, but you had no plans on doing anything other than diagnosing the problem and in the end you failed to even make a diagnosis.

    What exactly did they get for their service call investment. Some rhetoric about your " I only work on cool compressors" philosophy.

    They calle dyou to fix it dude, just fix it
