    Poor high voltage connection

    Had a call that a chiller was down. Opened up panel to find the wires all burnt up. You can see how the wires were sort of twisted around each other. That was the way I found it, with some electrical tape hanging off of it. It was 1 gauge wire coming in the top of the compressor contactor. A 60 ton compressor, 480 volts by the way. I guess the guy didn't have long enough wire and had to make a quick fix! Not safe, for sure.
