That heatwave was intense, we were literally putting out fires and cleaning condensers everywhere.

    Start keeping dog treats in your room, he will be real attached – or at least that's how my dog works 🙂

    Another One….

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KaRma2121 says:

    is that can going into the compressor the f/o metering device? or a filter drier just before metering? May be a dim question…. but it IS a question lol.. yep, confirmed. it's 100%a question

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alec Rollins says:

    Being on-call, you have to be vigilant about all the systems the customer has operating. It's such a sting when you walk into your living room, just to be paged to return to a site you just spent 10 hours at over something silly.

    Excellent job as always.your the man.cant wait for another victory repair

    This crazy heat wave we just had here in So Cal, VC area. We had capacitors go out like crazy. We also had dumb calls on units freezing over due to tenants running equipment set at 68°, had to constantly tell people the equipment was not meant for this high heat.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kaptaintrips says:

    Didn't listen to outro so apologies if this was answered: Why was the receiver and compressor hot if the HP peanut switch was bad?
    Edit: ambient temp tricked you into thinking it had been running?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Walker says:

    Good job Chris, I like those ladder diagrams, shows you the electrical system how it really works.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Something says:

    Watching your videos has teached me a few things, and I'm not even going into the HVAC trade, at least planning on it yet. It also reminds me of the systems at my current job.

    For example over a month ago one of the rooftop units that gets no love or attention ever failed over a month ago. Management denies it failed, even though the thermostat is calling, it's 79f+ in the store most of the time, and no airflow from the vents. No breaker is tripped and I believe it failed on high head pressure like this one did as it stopped working during a pretty hot week. I can only theorise though.

    I see why preventative maintenance is important, but our owners don't care as they are cheapskates. The makeline for example is very dirty where the compressor is, and it has failed before resulting in it needing to be fixed in the middle of the day while we're trying to work.

    Chris, I hadn’t watched any of your videos in quite some time, since I’ve been stuck in the steam plant at the prison, but now that I’m moving back out onto a yard, a yard with almost 20 walkins, half of them freezers, I started watching your videos again. It’s noticeable how you have slow down and take more time explaining things, I think that’s a Brite move I move in the right direction.

    That heat wave was absolutely brutal. I survived 3 months of the miserably hot summer here in the high desert, until this heat wave came and ruined me. Saturday Sept 3rd (the day before you made this video) I got sick with heat exhaustion. I was in a 130 degree attic for almost 2 hours trying to diagnose a zoning system problem. Finally got outta there, and figured well at least I’m not in an attic anymore. My next call was a residential PM for an RTU, it was 110, humid, and no breeze. That’s when I started to feel sick. My next call was another PM. I was up at the top of my 8 ft ladder checking return air temp, felt woozy and dizzy and almost lost my balance. Could’ve been worse. This heat wave was no joke.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Tsang says:

    What about the air in the brand new pressure control? Too little to be of concern?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jessie Z28 says:

    I came to watch some HVACR work, stayed for Luke. That's one adorable little fella. I've got a soft spot for hound dogs with big puppy eyes and floppy ears.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emmanuel O says:

    Cut that HPS open to look at the contacts Service area Barrhaven??

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AKStorm49 says:

    Sounds like Luke is more eager that your wife got home then you were. Haha. Great video as always. Service area Ottawa??

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DragonRider425 says:

    That HPC failed and probably saved that compressor. It probably took some damage, but it still works.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cayden says:

    Hey Chris, for school I have to write a paper about someone who exhibits Hard work, honesty, and integrity and I'm writing it about you. Are you in Kanata ?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Deathticle says:

    Definitely love watching your vids! My only minor complaint is that it would be better to disconnect power prior to spinning the condenser fans. Keep up the great troubleshooting skills! I love how you teach people to proceed in a logical manner. Some people just like to jump to conclusions. Are you in Barrhaven ?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zac Cody says:

    That's crazy my first service call of the day was for a walk in freezer that wouldn't turn on. Ended up being a bad temp control but nonetheless great video

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mateo Firecracker says:

    awesome job as always, your Manager (your Dog) wants out, you gotta listen to your manager 😛

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Landis says:

    You know? Now that I think about it, the systems that I've had to change compressors on have the same pattern of discoloration on the discharge line. Makes me think that these condensers I have are flooding back bad……..now I have a connection and I'm not crazy!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cat food says:

    Ok. This guy uses blue and yellow viper cleaner. Assumming yellow is the aluminum safe stuff. How come he dont just use the yellow cleaner on everything?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Johnson says:

    I remember those really low voltages when i lived in San Diego….when i lived in Buffalo….absolutely no issues with voltage sags. It was always stable…..here in Austin….its better than California, but not as good as Buffalo. Usually 208v equipment is at worst 201v…..in the morning and in the evening it is a little better. But 195v….is pretty low. It is enough to pull in that contactor. If memory serves me correctly….you can have up to 20% less than the rating and it'll still pull in.

    You might want to start investing in Buck Boost XFMR'ers for those really bad areas

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel King says:

    The amount of times I’ve heard you explain the viper foam gun is ridiculous at this point I feel like the sales rep 😂😂 love the vids though man i know you gotta say it incase theres new viewers Service area Orleans??

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alouis Schäfer says:

    Dang my line voltage is always above the rated voltage and doesnt dip one bit with heavy loads.
    What is California doing???

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Thurber says:

    Love it! Nylog, in NY is called "SNOT". Think about it…LMAO. Luv Ya.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Gregory says:

    So this is like what you call a final heatwave and than it will cool off right ?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scorchzzz says:

    1 2 3 please don't blow up! tick….tick….tick….tick….boom! loved your dog's appearance also – my husky would have drowned my voice out unless I did what I was told so that is lucky, he also takes ME for a walk not the other way around, sometimes we have to 'get with the program' I guess, great episode, all the best from the UK

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr Green says:

    I'm surprised the contactor pulled in not having the full 208v

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C117LS says:

    Dogs are the best. I have 2 labs- a silver male named Jax and a charcoal female named Mia

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tstartrekdude says:

    "just putting out fires"

    *proceeds to clean up system and make everything nice and then check the rest of the equipment on the roof*

    Fantastic work as always!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rmhanseniii says:

    That line voltage seems too low

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Merlin Brother says:

    That should be on your merch. 1 2 3 please don't blow up

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Park says:

    How do you know it is not the low pressure control? All the switches are in series like Christmas light string. Any one of the OTHERS could be open & you would see zero V on the low pressure control regardless whether it is open or closed.
    I note that despite having 3 phase power, the fan motors are 1 phase (capacitors are there).
    Comment about cleaning: the water flow should go in the reverse direction that the air goes, so you don't push the dirt further into the condenser (I assume the fans pull the air through the condenser). You also need to clean the blades. Manufacturers make it hard to access both sides of the condenser. Those fans should be set on hinges (with the wiring passing over the hinge axis to not interfere with opening). Service area Nepean??

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddy says:

    Hey , you can't blame dog for loving trophy wife 🤣😅😂 Thx for posting … Are you in Nepean ?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LMSILVIA says:

    That liquid injection system looks very janky doesn't it?? Also i think the current sensing is just to ensure the compressor does not get a shot of refrigerant when its off but the injection goes off the bi mettallic switch in the discharge line please correct me if i'm wrong.

    And i'm trying to find a reason for the suction line check valve and can't find one. I do install discharge check valves in scrolls that have to pumpdown but the suction i don't get it…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allen Heineck says:

    I thought having a schrader on a high pressure switch was taboo!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Muneer Afifi says:

    Is 195 all you guys get on a 208v service? That's terrible

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael O says:

    Man yall's voltage sags are crazy in California. The TVA here where am rarely has the power more than 3 volts over/under even in the depths of summer.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Mooney says:

    Was the compressor gettng slugged like what the ring was indicating at the suction line? What was the superheat? Thanks
