    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.

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

    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.

    If you have the self igniting Sure Fire, it will take near forever, ask me how I know.

    If you are using the Turbo Torch head/tip, it will take less than forever.

    That's when it was MAPP gas. Not sure how much heat was lost when they switched it to MAP gas.

    I have never had a problem my self old Rheems can be tricky though. Now when my buddy has to put one together i just stand back and watch because it is so entertaining. I am convinced that sheet metal hates him or something.

    Compared to oxy/acet, how long did that take?

    Not sure about that torch tip, but it looks similar to the lower heat Sure Fire.
