Full AC kit – the good, the bad
Ordered a full AC kit back in December – it arrived in a decent amount of time, and seemed complete. I managed to work a temp fix on the old compressor, which allowed me to put off installing the new kit until warmer weather arrived. The warmer weather arrived 2 weeks ago – middle of June.
Installed most everything in the kit, and it went well until… The new compressor had a different electrical connector than the old one. I phoned company to see what they could do. It boiled down to me returning the new compressor for a refund, and keeping the rest of the kit – if I wanted.
I elected to splice in the old connector onto the new compressor, and thereby void any warranty. So far everything seems to be working properly – no leaks, no issues, and cold air. We’ll see if it lasts a few years.
I was hoping they would’ve taken better care of a situation that their mistake caused. If I have to do this again someday, I think I’ll choose a different company to purchase from.
