About a week ago, one of our AC units (the small, window-mounted type) failed out of nowhere. I got to take it apart today. It's not really worthy of the time. It took forever and 100 minutes to tear the blessed thing apart, and all I got was a microswitch, a big module that i can't identify, and a capacitor the size of a soda can.
On the other hand, I got to take apart an answering machine and a CD player/tape deck/radio. I got a twin 7-segment display, an amplifier or two, a laser diode, a zener diode, and other miscellany.
