I don't get it doc. You work for a company but do work for free on nights and weekends? Slow paying customer is messing with YOUR money? Just keep in mind that this work, not on company time, places all financial liability on you and not the company should something go wrong.
It's not that I'm not getting paid, it's that the actual time it takes to diagnose ALL of these people's problems conflict with the limited hours in a day to get to everyone so I have to come back.
The compressor from the other day that I started the 'Fieldpiece or Subco" thread on as I bought a pyshc, I went back a total of four times to get them squared away. The third time was on a Sunday and I finally *killed the compressor as the system wasn't acting right after a condenser coil cleaning and repairing of some serious air leaks in the transition. I didn't want to just pump it down and clean the lineset with the possibility of the system still not acting right in regards to the compressor failing from overheating when the condenser fan motor blew up a few weeks prior so I got them a new one.
Fourth time was the following Friday morning for the compressor changeout and ll drier install and nitrogen flush and then the system started finally kicking rear, with all new refigerant as well, not the same that was in there.
I got paid for the compressor changeout and one hour at the place for the first day I was here although I should've put down 4 hours, my fault as I would've gotten paid $30 an hour on the last three hours.
The home owners tipped me $100 for my efforts, working on the weekend and all so it's all good.
*killed= told the insurance company they need a new one, and they did.
