I came across a condensing unit that did not have a brand.
The model number was AA1BJ060-A
The serial number was 1994E04424
There was a product number of AA1BJX060000AAAA
It was roundish and looked to be less than 10 years old i.e. no rust or really faded paint but not shiny like a one new either.
There was “High Efficiency” in green in the middle of the fan area.
The air handler/furnace was a Payne brand so I checked my Preston’s Guide, but the Payne units don’t start with Alpha characters.
I also looked under Goodman, Bryant, Ruud, Rheem, Am. Standard, Trane, Tempstar, and Lennox. No luck with any of those.
I know this isn’t much to go on but I was hoping that someone may know who the made this unit.
Here is a site that may help. I have a Payne system dated 1998 and it states on the data sheet it is made in the US (something actually made here!). According to the above website Carrier still owns Payne but the company is run separately from Carrier. Not that any of this matters…That website is an excellent one for getting information for all the makers and their phone numbers, contact info.
Thanks for the help. I checked the listings for Carrier and don’t see that serial number format for any of them. But like I said not much information to go on. I just told my client to have their HVAC pro figure it out. Well not in those exact words.
Now that the liquid in the brown bottles has worn off… In my first post I said I looked in Prestons to begin with but couldn’t find anything. I wasn’t going to look through the whole damn book, so I posted a message. I figured you, Charley B. or someone else with an HVAC background could provide the information quickly. Gerry came through with his information.
Not sure why you feel I spent/wasted a lot of time on this, in my second post I stated that I told my client to have their HVAC pro figure it out.
