    I would be surprised, yet delighted, if we heard from "larryjack" again.

    With the crappy treatment he got. I'd be surprised if he came ever back.

    You guys seem to like to forget that a lot of companies throw new techs to the wolves. And no, those new techs can't just step out the door and find another company to work for like many of us can.

    Well , since its "low voltage" , I guess we can say check from C to Y coming into the board from t-stat to know if its calling

    And Larry , Although you "can" check R to Y ..... you are back feeding it that way

    That test is usually to see if a switch is open or closed , and since you had 26 volts , this tell you the switch is open ( the t-stat isnt calling ) and if you read 0 volts , the switch would be closed "calling"

    Your profile states you are a technician, and a technician should know what the voltage should be between "R" and "Y" when a unit is calling for cooling, and what it should be when it's "NOT" calling for cooling.

    Do you work for a HVAC company, or are you a "One Man Show", or are you really a home owner disguised as a technician?

    Please explain how asking a "tech" to explain his electrical troubleshooting, and what his background is, is "crappy" treatment?

    A simple explanation on his part that he had been "thrown to the wolves", or he is a "student", would yield further assistance.

    I would still provide him help if he would at least explain his situation.

    X 2

    There's been more then once that a poster came back and admitted being a student or new or thrown to the wolves. They got the respect for being honest.
