i have ben married for 15 years. our air conditioner quit working today. the thermostat i could hear it click so i xed that off. the fan would kick on so i xed that off. the breaker wasn't blown so i xed that off. i checked the fuses and they were good so i xed them off the list. i did every thing a novice handyman could do to keep from calling a repair man. so i called four repairmen. one finally called back around 6:00 pm. he came over i explained what i had done(being proud of myself) so he got out the guages and what not and he come to the conclusion it was my thermostat. yeah it clicked but it wasn't engaging. so he proceeded in trying to sell me one for $105. i said i'll go to lowes tomorrow and get one. servce call $85. on a fri. afternoon, money well spent. it was only 85 degress but 90% humidity. now you notice my first sentence i stated how long i have been married. if my a/c would have been out over a couple of days i think that might have been it. it is amazing what pi**es you of when its so hot. my wife and i seldom get into an argument. today i seen fangs come out of her mouth and i scratched my head and i'm sure i i felt a horn trying to poke out of my "thinning head" its all good now we have a/c.
