    seems to be a timed mass failure,in the tampa bay area we have gone though loads of them this year.and yes they're made cheaper,just like everything else.

    Yea, here too. Ain't hard to stop a Trane when the CCH shorts out. Worst is when they are stuck in and won't come out.

    Is this in fairly new equipment or the 90's stuff?, I used to find this a lot back in the 90's, part # HTR1298, ordered so many I remember the number by heart

    I have replaced quite a few crankcase heaters on mid/late 90's Trane compressors. The replacement one from Trane looks different, so hopefully won't be a problem. I'm not sure when new units started using the new CCH.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
