    You're preachin to the choir, brother! I was pulled off PS work the last couple of weeks and did about 95% of my time on no cools. 6/10 were nuisance no cools, where people don't understand that the machine isn't a f***in magic box, just because you put the stat at 74 doesn't mean on a 99*/85% humidity day you will get that... ; 2/10 were something simple, like a capacitor low or dead so the fan wasn't running fast enough; 1/10 was low charge or a coil restriction, and the other 1/10 was a brick-a-brack deal of things: stuck/open CFM, burned contactor, mouse chewed the freakin high voltage wire and fried to it causing a short to ground.

    enjoy this...we got a problem penthouse unit with a tad over a hundred tons. this is a new install. factory has my guys working in the condenser, on the leaving side of the coils playing with charge, documenting everything. unit is designed at 130 plus condensing at 95. it hit over 100 for severla days as they are doing this. head pressure running in the low six hundreds. That place is hot. I had refrigerant cap in my pokcet, when I went to pull it, it was too hot to hold. cant stay in there long....
