    I'd make sure the exact type and length of fan control was installed on the furnace when it was replaced. These controls are critical to heat exchanger longevity. Just a minor adjustment to these controls can wreak havoc on x-changer temperature.

    For your safety; instead of just replacing the fan/limit, I would have a heating contractor take a look at the entire furnace to ensure that it did simply fail, and that its failure was'nt due to some other problem.


    I can't find a comment from anybody telling you that these controls "stop working completely" but "not wear out slowly".

    You have a problem that needs to be addressed. Its not normal for fan/limit controls to wear out every four years. Call someone and have them check over the furnace.
