Who here has been laid off due to COVID and what do you do now? - dualed
Tuesday will be my last day of work as I’m getting laid off. I work at the old Ormet alumina facility in Sorrento as a supervisor/operator. Going from making 90k to sitting on my ass. I’ve applied to countless jobs including a lot that don’t even pay $15/hr. I’ve had zero success. So I’m here con...

re: Do we find out about the 2nd stimulus package today? - dualed
I’m getting laid off in the next 1-2 weeks. I’m currently on track for 92k this year. Applied for countless jobs with zero responses so I’ll be relying on unemployment until I can find something. It is blowing my fricking mind that they passed the initial $600 because they knew state systems could...

UPDATE: Not the thermostat. Got my guy back out and he’s saying it’s the compressor. Something to do with the expansion valves and some other issues. With my unit being old as shit, I’m just ponying up the money and getting him to replace the whole thing. Just gonna run me 2500 with the little fo...

Yikes. We’ll see. These responses have been helpful fellas. I’m going to get a new thermostat and see if that helps any and then go from there. Thanks everyone :cheers:...

[quote]Bad compressor, keels over when running, starts back up when you power cycle it.[/quote] Perhaps. I'm going to get him back out here to troubleshoot again, but if it comes to needing a new compressor I may as well just get a new unit. This is why people need an emergency fund. I just got C...

Calling AC experts of the OT. AC hits setpoint, warms back to 80+, rinse and repeat - dualed
So within the past few days my home AC has gone on the fritz. A couple nights ago I noticed it was warm in the house so I looked and it was showing 81 on the thermostat while my setpoint was at 72. I just killed the power to it then brought it back online and it cooled down to the setpoint and I tho...
