From the looks of their website, the climate control repair is the ONLY thing they do? They couldn't get the ONE thing they do right for you?

Ask why it cannot be fixed. Perhaps a part died they cannot get.

Hello everyone. I did receive Burning2nd's climate control unit which was unrepairable. Sometime I can not repair the damage that is caused when people attempt to repair it on their own and cause irreversible damage. The unit also had a cracked screen which is not covered under my repair for the same price. I do repair the screens but I am very clear that it is extra. I am very good at what I do. I repair thousands of these units even when they have had previous unsuccessful work attempted on them. All depends on the degree of damage that the previous repair has caused. I explain this to Burning2nd's however some people will not understand and expect you to do a miracle. I did not charge him and gave him a free evaluation of his unit and returned it back.

Folks, Please... Its important to not do further damage to the unit. Do not attempt to repair it and look for a miracle afterwards. If you don't have the equipment and correct parts, don't even think about doing it. For the price of my repair is it worth experimenting with it?

Thanks,
Eddie

lol no you did charge me and returned a different unit that still works great to this day...

Lets be honest, you run this out of your garage or basement... and while your service was cheap compared to the price of a new one...
your web page reflects "quick" turn around and "same day" service... when in fact you had the unit for about a week b4 you got around to calling me to tell me you could replace it for a additional amount,

you did good work eddie... your just were a little slow and your page doesnt reflect what really happens.... not to mention you got me confused with someone from another state...


fortunately im not your average tard in a bmw.. i understand capacitor and resistance of printed boards, although its damn near next to impossibility to get just one, and as you do this "all the time" for you buying a lot of 5000 isnt a bad idea


Id recommend him for this service... just dont except your unit back quickly... and dont waste your time with over night shipping
