    Hi Nick! Hi Christina! Well...I just want to let you know...

    ...that he's got his hands into fixing another of Nick's air-conditioners.

    Although Danielandersen2 posted the beginning of this guy's newest exploits in another WOL thread, he MORE than deserves his own thread. This is CRINGE-WORTHY stuff:

    15 July: Upstairs A/C Stopped working, Gutter falling off, Manassas Home

    21 July: High Start Capacitor needs replaced Manassas home

    22 July: A/C needs a condensing fan motor also - Part 1

    22 July: A/C needs a condensing fan motor also - Part 2

    24 July: Contacter Switch

    25 July: Contactor Switch

    Took him eleven days do fix several simple electric issues we'd have completed in a few hours - INCLUDING our ONE run to a parts house.

    Watched the one about the high start capacitor-- that was all I could take for a while. This guy is mind boggling.

    shiny new meter he's got there. apparently it is just one of those tools used to make you look like you know what you are doing because it definitely didn't aid in diagnosing all the failed parts. this guy drives me nuts. I find it so hard to watch more than a few minutes. maybe if it didn't take him ten minutes to explain the conductivity of ants I could hang in a little longer.

    X2, I like how he opens that nice meter case to show nick his shiny new meter. I have to fast forward through most of it, I can't take more than a couple minutes.

    good thing he had pics and video of the contactor. it is extremely important to have all the manufacture part numbers, we all know how hard it is to get the right contactor. lol. I think I am investing in go-pro hat cams for all my guy's. we should never get the wrong part again. thank god it wasn't Friday and just by luck it was in stock.

    That guy is a special kind of special. I just don't have the words or least nice ones. Why is he making and posting these videos?? He seems nice, there I said something positive.

    Yeah-- I wonder what was so special about that start cap that the supply house didn't have one in stock. Maybe they just had regular start caps and no "high start capacitors".
