Most “mother” and driver boards on modern computer-controlled equipment use phenolic cA fin comb is a simple, cheap hand tool that lets a tech quickly restore the contour and separation of condenser fins without damage. Clean the condenser, and then work gently from an undamaged section into the flattened area, rocking the tool slowly from side-to-side.

The key is to manipulate the aluminium as little as possible during straightening, to prevent the metal from work hardening and breaking or tearing. A few cracks in fins are nothing to worry about, but if major sections are missing, cooling performance will be compromised.

Condenser replacement needs a refrigeration tech; most plant maintenance personnel can’t do it in this age of licensing for ozone-depleting substances, so a little care at the condenser can save lots of money and aggravation later.
