      Having laid some theoretical groundwork in the last webinar, we're going to focus on practical considerations in this one. That means quick n’ dirty techniques for diagnosing sealed system problem using strategically chosen and skillfully interpreted temperature measurements.  Review homework from the first session on 10-2-2017. Home refrigerator practical design and operating rules-of-thumb useful for troubleshooting Practical application exercises Troubleshooting scenario exercise Techniques for making system temperature measurements for determining superheat and subcooling Sealed system diagnosis homework assignment (to be reviewed in the next webinar in this series) If you attended the first webinar in this series, this is your payday! We’re going to apply that keen, penetrating insight you now possess into money- and time-saving shortcuts you can use to diagnose real-world refrigeration systems on service calls.

"Vote Up" Not Working

Recommended Posts

It would be nice for tech's to be able to vote up replies that we concur with ... when I do, I get an error message. A reply that has 8 or 10 votes up would really give it credibility.

Strathy, were you able to vote up/down at all? The screen clip you included says that you reached your max voted for the day-- implies that you were able to vote prior. Oui?

I don't believe those have ever worked as I always got the same message - probably connected somehow to the "reputation" of the user

Sorry - I missed your question. No, it does not work at all. That message comes up the first time and every time you click the vote up button.

Actually, it still is. They added several other "karma" systems in addition to the one retained from the previous version.

I kinda like the "Like" system, even if it seems Facebooky. Whatchyall think?
