York YK condenser, Fresno CA. This was supposed to be a routine ECA inspection. We found severe mechanical wear at the supports area from the unit vibrating well beyond design. The unit is mounted on a steel floor in a trailer and the owners run it at very low loads causing it to cycle surge. To make matters worse the unit was short of refrigerant causing a surge. This accelerated vibration which in turn wore the tubes out and began to cause them to cave in. We plugged them off to save the unit, later we did a partial retube to discover several had failed after we had plugged them off.  They were very fortunate.
