We have a Carrier AC/Heat pump. We have been having a problem with
the 5amp fuse that is located on the inside unit. When the heat or ac
tries to engage it blows the fuse. We have checked the board and
found a spot where two thermostat wires were touching and shorting out
on the outside case cover. Thought we had it resolved and even
cleaned the board on the outside unit. When we turned the heat back
on it turned on great and then when it got to the correct temp inside
it turned off. When it came back on it again blew the fuse. We had
run out of solutions. Anyone have any ideas? The fan runs fine and
the emergency heat also works properly. Help!
True but what I was getting at is I have seen a bunch of Carrier heat
pumps that short the wire from the pres sw to the copper. The wire
covering is real cute looking yellow or pink or blue. Its rather stiff
and thin. It doesnt burn through the covering........rather it just
vibrates through. It leaves a whitish mark on the copper where it
shorts. Had one of them do it twice till I finally disconnected the
wires and slid some covering over them (black vinyl humidifier drain
tubing.) Worked like a champ ever since. Just some more Carrier cost
Pinched wires at the condenser is nice to locate... I wonder why the cover
isn't installed correctly??? Hummmmm, lets leave this screw out as the cover
isn't fitting right...
Yep, pull the cover and the wiring isn't located within the wiring box.
Repair the wiring, tuck it in and the cover fits. Now the missing screw will
reach the cabinet.
The last company just replaced the fuse and left. I guess it must have been
a lot easier to replace a fuse and tell the customer it's ok... yep, till
the next time the wiring hits the improperly installed cover!
The point is to stop and let others do it when you hit the point where
effective work has declined. There are many studies on this both in the
mili8tary and in the industrial complex. But of course if your daily
effective work is shitty, then what is there to say? It just isn't gonna
get any better.
Hire 'em young! They can MULTITASK and are efficient at it too. They can
drive the car, watch tv, send and receive text messages as well as have a
conversation with someone in the passenger seat next to them. But when it
comes to work, they're really really slow... just watch 'em walk.... baggie
pants and all.
Hey! Alex! my brudda from anudder mudda! yeah, size 2, same as you;
remember, bro? I thought they had shaved your point off; guess it grew back
if you want to make a point you just have to touch your toes and make an
impression in the ground. are you in charge of shorts? I guess you don't
have to look too far?
