    GOODMAN

    If i have too remove the fan cover on a Goodman unit. It is difficult especially with only 2 hands to resecure it in place. The hail guards seem to just bulge out . is there a knack ?

    Goodman is all about price, not service friendliness or ease of use.

    But, generally, get the guard mostly in place and install a screw or two to keep it in place. Then gradually work around the unit. Don’t tighten the screws until the guard is all in.

    Been there done that.

    Cheap units fun to reassemble.

    As they said start on one side, and go around lifting and getting it in place, slow process sometime but it is what it is.

    Then deal with the screw holes being wollowed out just from removing them by hand due to the thin metal.

    Gotta lot of love for puttin Goodman units back together. Always makes my day. Right after a through service of a Goodman condenser, I usually ask if I can crawl in their attic and roll around in the insulation just to completly make the day a happy one.

    There we go, just got my morning chuckle, Thanks!
    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.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    What is worse? Running out of acetylene or running out of brazing rods? Had both happen in the last 2 weeks .

    Acetylene. Menards sells braze rod probably cheaper than the supply houses. If your really in a pinch you can brazed with MAPP gas

    No such thing as Menards here and brazing with a MAPP torch sucks, especially with 7/8.
