Refrigerator Troubleshooting
In this session, we will be discussing refrigerator troubleshooting. In the last 5 years, there have been numerous changes to top mount refrigerators. Having a good understanding of the repair & diagnostics of these units will aid technicians in completing the repair on the first call. We will start the discussion with safety & tools, & then review different work order situations. For each work order situation, we will then discuss how to use a meter & tools to identify the problem as well as different solutions to complete the repair & return the refrigerator to normal operation.

HVAC Troubleshooting
In this session, we will be discussing HVAC troubleshooting. With recent legislation impacting the industry, having the knowledge to make these repairs is necessary to keep your budget under control & your residents & guests cool. Our experts will provide various HVAC symptoms that may occur & discuss how to safely & properly use your tools to diagnose & repair the system. Lastly, we will review the importance of preventative maintenance in maintaining your HVAC units.
