    That transformer is what makes the condenser turn on and off, smart ass. The guy gave me 2 full cases of Natty Light for that install!

    Now quit making fun of my work!

    I suspect the extra stats on the wall are because the first attempts tried to use the stat to run the condensing unit direct and fried them so the contactor was put back into play and they needed the transformer for the 24v resi controls.

    I am sure they put the transformer in the cooler to keep it from overheating in the summer ... lol.

    The worst part is actually hanging by the condenser, see the box with the split bolts and LB, yep that's right, the condensing unit appears to be connected to #2 wire or bigger, imagine the surprise someone may get when the comp shorts out

    I would've told him my company isn't working on it but I will be back on Saturday. Tell him you want a minimal fee plus all the beer you can drink to fix that mess. Take Uber home and pick your van up on Sunday. Seems like a no brainer.
