    WIC existing cooler

    Found this at a long time customer.

    Call was WIC not cooling. I told the techs when I sent them that the last time I was there, maybe a year ago, the evaporator was shot.

    They arrived to find this, including the gauges and tank of gas.

    They were told it has been this way for 3-4 mos.

    From what they were told, I suspect the person that did this returned to their country of origin.

    That's funny. Maybe Trump found him and made him go home, or he's sitting in jail somewhere.

    Are those the factory brackets on that thing? Something doesn't look right about them and I don't think I've ever seen a coil like that that wasn't made to mount flush to the ceiling.

    Seen somewhere think it was on this forum where a guy was using thin unistrut between ceiling and evap. He claimed it gave better airflow in smaller boxes. I have never tried it,or maybe I was drinking

    Appears to be a new coil to me. Looks like they utilized the existing holes. Two fan coil is a little extreme for that small box.

    I have seen a bunch of old WI boxes where there are brackets that go through the back wall and the condenser sits on the same angle iron outside, the evap hangs from it inside. When you replace the condenser, the evap will teater-totter until you get weight back on the outside.

    Looks like the suction gauge is at 30", and it's not even hooked up to anything.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.
