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.

it's always scary to open a panel and see crap like that,It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

Man, let me tell ya. It's been three or four months already and it still has "that" smell inside the panel.

I had my head inside a 4160v primary reactor starter panel the other day that failed to transition to run and subsequently burned out the reactor... That was a smell I would like to soon forget.Truth is still truth, even if no one believes it. A lie is still a lie, even if everyone believes it.
