Did you check the wiring at the compressor to make sure it didn't melt one of the terminals in the terminal box on it and hitting ground. Let me know how it comes out.
The wires to the compressor looked good and he pulled the box and said it looked good inside. I'm damn sure not against trying the BFH when I get home - any place in particular I should tag the bad boy to free it up?
The warranty on the thing ran our two years ago. I have two NEW Trane units and BOTH of them have gone out within 7 years. EVERYONE remember than when you go to buy a Trane - they SUCK.

I'm just looking for someone honest - I've got the unit torn down and was tempted to pull the compressor myself but I backed off -figured I'd let a pro take it from there.
THANKS for all the help and responses guys!!!!
