    Had to go to a Sheraton hotel today and install a 10 hp motor in this pos
    [​IMG]

    Just who in the hell would design some shit like this? I've seen many of these turds throughout the years and everytime I'd say to myself, sure hate to change out the motor in this pos...........................well today was the day. What a real pain in the ass that was. Two hundred pounds of fun, up the last flight of stairs and across the roof. Across a 6ft high section and kiss my ass. Don't walk in the center because the roof might not hold you type shit.

    this was a 12 wire motor as was the old one. Diagram said l1-t1 and t11 l2-t2 and t10 then l3-t3 and t12. The motor would not start but pulled 71amps:shocked:. All right mf, now what. I've never seen one wired that way, usually the 10, 11 and 12 leads are wired together. Called the motor shop and they confirmed that so we changed the wiring.
    Now we wait on the internals to close back up for about an hour. Longer story short the ****ing l1 (black) wire was burnt in half where it rubbed through the back of the blower housing. Had to take the top off to find that.

    That motor had 1/4" of clearance to get past the evap tubing and it was a ****ing miracle we didn't put a hole in something. :boid: Carrier

    I also hate and dread those units...specifically (but not exclusively) for that reason.

    What I like best is how those units can turn changing filters into a 10 minute debacle per unit (or 20 minutes with wind, when you have to look for a safe place to stare the knife-shaped fiberglass-covered stripped-out panels)

    You left out the Part about:3 hour ride out with a rookie tech who had a Burrito for breakfast, elevator in 5 story out of service,got up to roof and the Blazing Sun came out for the first 2 Hours,then a rainstorm as I troubleshooted 460/3 Phase,and your Vans A/C Broke on the way Home! Home , greeted by an empty Fridge of Beer and a "How was your Day Dear"?

    I really like most of all, how the top liner in the cabinet comes down and gets pulled in flaky chunks into the blower. That's super great.

    Did you remember to put all the stripped screws back in? Those are factory spec.

    I really like those little T-shaped door "attacher" gizmos that are "secured" with stripped-out sheet metal screws. That is super great.

    Wait until you get one with a bad exchanger, on the 2010 models 2 of the screws that hold the exchanger in place are behind that motor bracket.
