yes what you say is very true about 98% of the time but Carrier [ and maybe some
other brands but can't remember ] on some models some time back did still have
open face motors with a over sized cup down on side rain shield on it. If you
paint the picture to wash them as you please on all , well these 2% open face
motors are going to come back and haunt you. be sure to not let the wide paint
brush cover these old type open face motors with big cups water shields on them.
And yes I bought a fan motor one time by washing a carrier condenser while
running. i did not look to see if it was a totally sealed motor. Bought Lessons
are much better that Schooled lessons.
And Yes i guessed at the % of the motors.

need your business.

If that is the case, they are very narrow minded. Why do some of the top
chefs and restaurant owners give away recipes and do cooking demonstrations
I don't want to deny you making a good living, but are you losing money if I
do a repair with your help? Will you come to my house and do it at your
normal price? Of course not, it would be impractical.
Of course, most the guys on alt.hvac are a bunch of closed minded idiots

work on my system as their ego would get in the way of doing a good job.
