Need An Air Conditioner Repairman or Installation?

I Know A Guy... By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - I would like to recommend a person who recently did some work for me to repair a Samsung 18,000 BTU split airconditioner in my office. I had another couple of guys working on this system and they didn't know what the hell they were doing. They had me buy and replace a fan motor that was not broken, and basically left me hanging with a partially disassembled split AC that still was not working. Then someone recommended Alexander Marrugo. He does all kinds of work, particularly with welding, building aluminum doors, and general construction. He came over with an air conditioning specialist and they spent the entire afternoon yesterday and most of the morning today trouble shooting my busted split AC unit. It turns out the other guys who were here before at some point inverted two wires, and with those two wires inverted on the outside unit there was no way it was going to work. The other guys had disassembled the outside compressor to clean it and apparently at some point they inverted these two wires when they were putting it back together. Duh. Then they could not get the unit to run so they started swapping out parts (that were not actually broken) and they were never able to get the unit functioning. They went away frustrated, and my AC unit stayed broke. These new guys came over and they were able to identify the problem, fix it, buy and install the required replacement parts, and get me running again. Alexander's cell phone number is 6733-5963 and you should be aware he does not speak a whole lot of English, so you might want to have someone standing by who can translate, provide directions, or what have you. But honest guys who know what they are doing with air conditioning repair are worth their weight in gold, and sooner or later here in Panama you're going to be needing their services, even just for regular maintenance, cleaning, general upkeep, installation, or repair.

I once had an A/C guy tell me the unit would not cool because it was not meant to run on the 'Auto' setting. As it turned out, all that was wrong was a previous A/C cleaner person had put the temp sensor in front of the cool air outlet. The unit thought that it was always really cool in the room!
