I was up early this morning and on my way to Helton Electric, in Crystal River. I took in the blower motor and the owner said "Oh, my gosh". That didn't make me feel any better. Then he looked in his catalogs and could not find a replacement for the blower motor. Now, I'm feeling even worse. Finally he offered " The best I can do is have one of my guys make a new one using some of the old parts." I figured if that's the best he can do then I should take it. Joking, I said "What time will it be ready this afternoon?". He replied that he would have to see what they could do and call me later. I figured that by the time they got the parts ordered and shipped it would be the middle of next week. I drove home.

About 15 minutes later the owner called and said he had the stuff to make the blower motor and it would be ready by noon. While everything was apart I took the time to pressure wash the squirrel cage fan and I used my compressor to back wash the cooling coil. I got everything back together by 5:00 PM. With the clean coil and fan, and with a slightly more powerful fan, the cold air really blows out of the vents. Another summer job complete. Am I content????? NO!!! The way this summer is going I'm waiting for the next thing to break.

More later.
