    Hot Outside!

    It has been in the 90's for quite some time now, I figured I should take a picture. Also the Humidity is at 83%. We finally had a good thunderstorm last night that brought the temperature down into the high 70's. This picture was taken yesterday (monday) around 4:30pm.

    not yet, still can't find one. At least for now the A/C works great, for about an hour until the lines freeze up. due to the fact that the compressor never shuts off even when the ecc is in the off mode.

    98's pretty warm... The whole nation is slow roasting. We've been bumping over 100 here in FL, plus heat index. 105-110 with the heat index. 90% humidity is common to. Of course the AC on the 96 Fleetwood's not the most efficient setup.

    It has been terrible through out the country. Heat index put us at 110 yesterday and 118 today. One of the hottest weaks in MN history. I had to swap a tranny and play paintball the last couple days, what bad timing on that one.

    Re: Hot Outside!

    Today's heat index is suppose to be 110º F. It's been a crazy summer. It also sucks that earlier this week a couple of family members were complaining that my pool was to cold. so I ended up turning the heater all the way up. long story short, I forgot to turn it back down and the next day the water was way too hot. Around 100º F. Hopefully by now it has gone down.

    Have you done any diagnostic on the system to see what parts you need? The compressor not tuning off can be related to a bad programer, power module, and control head, as well as some other related electronics. I still might be able to get you the parts you need, but I need to know what parts those are.

    Here is a chart that might help you figure out the problem:

    Currently 115 with the heat index here. No more "cold" Canada jokes! I have to do rotors and pads tonight in the garage. I am going to lose ten pounds.

    I need to find the photo I took of my Roadmaster's climate control when it was -45F...

    Ahhh, Today was a little warmer. I feel bad for you Jay, you might loose 20lbs when your done. I hate when I get sweat in my eyes, That sh*t burns like no other. Also I've only seen -3º F on the display of my Brougham. windchill has been in the - 20's. I'm sure you know all about windchill though.
