Tucson, AZ

Sunday - There was a special test session this afternoon for a class. The instructor was in Eugene, OR, and the students were from coast to coast including one from Hawaii. It was a long session lasting over three hours but all but one of the students passed.

I finished the day out sitting in the jacuzzi until around 8pm. Pretty nice...

Monday - The temperature this morning was only 61°F and this wasn't the overnight low. Those are pretty nice temperatures. And the high of 82°F is nothing I'm going to complain about.

I'm going through the directions for the refrigerator upgrade and I think it will take a couple of days. A lot of steps in the seventy-five pages of instructions. Plus, it must sit upright for a minimum of twelve hours to allow the oil to drain back into the compressor in case the direction arrows weren't followed during shipment.

Tuesday - Lead one of the test sessions today. I wasn't planning on it but no one had volunteered. I called the applicant about ten minutes ahead of time and he had tested with us before so he was familiar with the drill.

The replacement refrigerator back arrived via FedEx truck at around 5:30pm. The paperwork indicated that it weighed 95lbs but I’m sure that includes the pallet it was sitting on. It seems to be very well packed for the weird shape. 

I disconnected several more wires from the back and discovered that the ice maker shutoff doesn’t shut off the water so I just removed the valve from the back of the refrigerator and left the supply line connected. 


  1. Quite the project you're taking on!

    1. This is one that I’ve been looking forward to doing. I never did care for the flame behind the refrigerator…
