    New Student, Free Online Resources?

    Hello,

    I have been searching the forums for appropriate reading material. I don't like the text book I have...half the book explains all about left handed screwdrivers.

    Can anyone provide a few titles of a good start text and any online location where one may download free books, and reading material.

    To add to that OP if you download the Copeland app you can read all of those Copeland compressor application engineering bulletins. I have learned a lot from them myself.

    Copeland, Sporlan, Trane, Danfoss and others have short course powerpoints with and without test, free, online.

    High level studies are available from Purdue and govt sources. Quick searches can find more than you will ever read.

    Copeland has a five manual reference, Carrier has quite a number, as well as York, McQuay/Daikin, and other mfgs.

    I like reading the early manuals, especially pre "freon" & pre hermetic. Study of design changes that have improved the efficiency of equipment is interesting, nearly all reliability improvements have been control related. I have extensive digital and paper reference library that I have found useful.

    Does anyone have a .pdf on small refrigeration appliance? I'm new and am beginning to work on dehumidifiers and window ac units. They are free and it make me fell like I'm learning when I give a working unit away to someone.

    This is an appliance specific forum. There isn't a lot of info available on appliance repair other than a fellow appliance repairman.
    You might try hanging out at your local appliance parts store and ask the old techs questions. The shortage of appliance repairman is far worse than hvac techs so if you are any good at all you could probably land a full time job on accident.

    The problem with small residential appliance is if it takes more Thea an hour or 2 it’s cheaper to replace.
