I hope you did the customer a favor and killed that Black Widow!!...?

You had me scared for a minute! Thanks for watching!

No it isn't! You bastard! you gave that customer a new compressor, didn't
you??! And I bet you didn't even tell them! Never let this guy work on your
equipment; he's always giving em new equipment for free! You probably even
killed their pet spider and her home! I always knew you were a sketchy
character, Dallas, but come on! LOL nice job as always my friend!

I never doubt these units they are tough!

It could be either but I would test the capacitor first.

Awsome work you cleaned it to. I have a problem I can hear fan motor but
the blades do not spin . I put a stick in the grill and turned the blades.
The blades start to spin but never reach full speed. Blades spin freely. I
was thinking capacitor or fan motor?

That is my exact unit. I had a tech come out and use a Compressor Terminal
Repair Kit and it worked for a month. When it stopped, I noticed he didn't
add a lug to the black/top wire. That post came completely off of the unit
so there is no place to screw on a lug. Is there a way I can repair that
terminal? Thank you.

Was he or she trying to get a second quote? If so then that first
contractor was really trying to rip a customer off. There should be more
honest techs like you around

I have similar ac and what happened was that the cold air just stopped
working. Found that the compressor wasn't turning on. I changed out the
capacitor and the compressor came on, but only for a little while. The
comprossor won't turn on now....the contactor is good though...any

You can Also Tell when a Compressor has a Bad Capacitor When the Compressor
Try's to Start then just goes "Brahhhhhh Then shuts back off" Thats another

The capacitor had a slight bulge (expanded case hard to see in the video)
and the symptoms that the customer explain to me. Thanks for watching!

nice work. love the whole side being an inch off the wall...

Автор vinicioaz ( назад)
Very good job! Not only does it look like you installed a new compressor
but at the end it also looks like a damn new unit! I could see that you
take pride in you're work. We need honest people like you in Az. Most
contractors would have sold that customer a new compressor.

He hosed it off when he cleaned the coils.

@tstatech Hey Jason! You would think with all of the service literature and
tect school thing would get better.

Good one Dallas. I get those all the time in the summer. Makes it real easy
to gain a good reputation when a lot of the competition is corrupt, stupid
or both.

@AVTreasures Hey Ray Thanks so much! The Rheem unit run great and a
contactor in 15 years I blame that on the ants!! LOL

Great video Dallas!! That Rheem just needed somebody that cared to come
along and help it out!! Great job as always. The only part my old RAKA has
ever had is a contactor in 15 years, and the ants had a hand in that one I

@Ajax234 I put the dryer right at the inlet of the evaporator.

Автор Ajax2341 ( назад)
where do you install the filter drier, by the furnace?

Автор yrtuag ( назад)
It was always a good day when I was sent with a comp. to change out and
then double checked and found the capacitor bad and was back on the road in
no time. And on 3 phase when I would find 1 blown fuse. Of course you check
for a problem and replace all 3. I remember my first day at a new company
they sent me w/ another tech to change out a comp that he had condemned I
didn't question just helped and when we turned power on just a loud
noise.3ph. found 1 blown fuse.All that for nothing!

@MrAirdoctor Thank you!

well the after shot looked like you put on a new compressor

Автор texaswildhunter ( назад)
I work for Gemaire in Dallas, the copeland factor has told us that 90%+ of
the compressors we send back under warranty are working fine!! I hate
having to deal with guys that have no idea what they are doing or are out
to make a quick buck off there customers!!

@mickichito7 Thank you very much!

They will run for a long time buzzing but it is annoying.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@HCVguy93 If the unit buzzes every now and then it is the contactor.The
capacitor are silent.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@danielpolo1392 The contactor make a buzzing sound when it is going bad.
Ratting is a possible loose panel or a out balance fan blade and if the
compressor is bad it is really loud.Hope this helps!

Автор Daniel Salazar ( назад)
My unit outside makes a rattling noise and someone told me it could be the
contactor. Is this likely? or can a bad compressor make a rattling noise

@Nutintoitbut2doit The Rheem units are one of the best in my opinion.It
really boil down to how it's installed. I have not installed a bryant but I
bet they are a smooth operator Thanks....

Автор Nutintoitbut2doit ( назад)
Ya Them Rheem/ Ruud units are some strong A/C units and Furnaces, They are
second to none in my opinion, Bryant is a good one to. Great job Mr. Dallas.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@ComfortAirCompany Thanks alot! I really appreciate it!

Автор ComfortAirCompany ( назад)
Great clean-up! This show how good of a tech you truly are because you not
only honestly fixed it but you also cleaned everything.

Автор Fritz Rochester ( назад)
I took you advice , and won't buy 370v , 440v from here on out.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@fritzhvac Hey Fritz Thanks! It is amazing how many capacitor take a
powder!! I mostly carry dual run caps and all my caps are 440V.

Автор Fritz Rochester ( назад)
Hey Dallas , you are the man ! Great Job!!! I am replacing , with double
pole every cap change out , they only run me 5.00 , and I personally like
the piece of mind changing both . Did my fist copeland scroll replacement
yesterday , on a 2004 ducane. Looks good , Dallas , NICE and Clean too!!!

Автор Aussie50 ( назад)
@dizziedallas yeah, its not just AC units either, PC power supplies and
Plasma TV's seem to suffer from cheap cap failures. some of the oldest AC
units I've scrapped still had their factory run caps in them, a bit rusty
but still good.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@Aussie50 Thanks, it seem like the run caps don't hold up like they used
to, now I am sounding old!! back in the day etc......

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@PutSome5tankOnIt Every time I hear bad compressor I dont believe it!! No
wonder the manufactures say 60% of all in warranty compressor have been
diagnose incorrectly.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@HVACKID94 That unit was installed in 2001 it ran good after I clean it
up.Rain water is a bad news for any electrical panel and control box.The
capacitor will rust out in no time and not to mention a electrical short.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@tstatech All three are correct!!! Getting a 3mfd is a good idea , I
usually have a couple in stock. All of the capacitor I carry are 440V It
just easier than stocking a 370v and 440v.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@FilterChanger You are good!!! I did have a little time and the hose was
real closes and 5:00 does seem a little early for you.

Автор dizziedallas ( назад)
@67tr876 Thanks you I am glade you liked the video!

Автор Aussie50 ( назад)
good job!, the burned wire on the contactor makes it look like the comp was
over-amping, but more like bad contacts overheating, combined with high
start current and no comp start. reminds me of a mini-split I saved, comp
would just growl and pull high amps. new cap fixed all.

Автор PutSome5tankOnIt ( назад)
Oh yeah... and... we love those Rheem RAMBO's in SoCal. Solid 12 SEER units
that are easy to work on.

Автор PutSome5tankOnIt ( назад)
I enjoy rolling up on a warranty call and informing the customer that the
previous tech was trying to sell the compressor up the river. A dual run
cap failure is not uncommon and it's going to be replaced along with the
compressor, anyways. The most egregious call I ever went on was diagnosed
by another contractor as 'locked rotor'. Turns out... the noise was the
contactor 'humming'... the breaker was tripped. How's THAT for an
unscrupulous HVAC guy?

Автор tstatech ( назад)
Was the last tech after a spiff? just lazy? Just dumb? I see bad caps all
the time. I test them on every motor I encounter. At least 25% if not 50%
are out of range. I always recommend to my customers that they change them.
It's cheaper to change a cap rather than a compressor or motor. I charge a
fair price for them as well. Need to get some dual runs with 3mfd for the
fan so that when I roll up on a Rheem I'll be prepared.

Автор FilterChanger ( назад)
The wires from the contactor did look a bit cook-ed. What happened to all
the spider webs, and dust on the compressor?? You must have too much time
on your hands. I actually felt bad for getting home before 5:00pm today.
Bring back the heat wave!!
