I have been looking into trade schools.  but, it seems like there is not much that offers appliance repair.  The only thing I can find are 2 or 3 week courses that offer what seems to be useful information, but, I am not so sure that will get me a job doing repairs.

Just keep at what you are doing. We got plenty of service manuals on hand.
If you need a little help just ask.

Take pictures of the evaporators... the frost on the evaporator will tell you if you have a leak...But always check the condenser it must be able to release the heat.....post your question will help... just throw JW a beer how and then...
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!

Love a cold one that is fer sure.  :pint1:

I was gonna do some video work. I made a 1 minute video of a window unit I hard wired to run without controls and it took fifty forevers to figure out how to do it and for it to take. I was figuring on making a video that would show how to but dangit I cannot even see it if a simple 1 minute video take 15 minutes to upload. Jeez. Maybe if I bought a better camera. LOL

Maybe a subject for a new topic. :)
