I CAN NOT afford a new unit, as just replaced 4x4 in truck, had kidney surgery, payed Lawyer 5000 for divorce repres!!! I have cold weld solution that Never failed me, hot or cold uses. Can I get by or is there a professional product that may seal leak?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Set on 70- stays on 70. No variance
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: What my “ retired” Hear and Air “ man can’t do, until a golden egg laying hen drops in my lap, I want to seal the leak, either myself or affordable expert
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The unit has only has one episode when healting coil or element burned out. Been a great unit. with all I got on me, I just can’t put a new unit in. By way: i also had new septic and drain lines put down in 2017! Been a bad year. Thank for your listening

Many sealants can cause blockages in orifices and metering devices.If you are gointg to try anything.I recommend Nu Calgon.
