Hello, tell me about how old the system is, and as much about the cooling tower and evaporative condenser condition as possible. Use the paper clip icon on the right end of the tool bar above, or the 'attach files' link to the left of your send button to send me a photo take from 15 feet away of the trane unit with the covers open, and the cooling tower or evaporative condenser on the roof in most cases, but sometimes sitting at ground level outside, it is generally about twice the size of the trane unit. I need the model number of the Trane unit. Next tell me a lot about your technical skill levels, you may need a bit of training and coaching... if it looks like that will go over an hour I will offer you a premium service to handle that. We can go from there
