    We've had a couple of threads on this in the past. In short, yes, many, many problems. Personally I only use PSC motors when I replace them.

    Absolutely. I've replaced a TON. On all failures, check static pressure. I was told by my Carrier FSR that TESP should be below .6 to prevent failure.

    I was told that if they run over .6, the motor will fail in 12-18 months in humid climates (I.E. South Carolina, Georgia, Florida).

    All replacement modules should be remedied of this issue.
