I am sure every technician has a story about the craziest problem they have found when doing a service call. The question is, can you beat finding an air conditioning unit that has been doused with deer urine?

The fire department was able to isolate the odor to one or two air-conditioning units next to the room. The fire chief theorized that someone put deer urine in the unit as a prank.

Now that would be one bad service call. The link to the entire story in the Kingsport Times News is here:
