    410A compressor failures, after 10 years

    Just curious, anybody else seeing this? I just replaced a top brand, paint job still looked new. I am afraid the Freon 22 units spoiled everyone on their long life...Kind of like that old 40 year old Kenmore fridge that's still cooling at your parents house.

    fridges are usually inside and not exposed to elements. Moreover they are sealed at factory usually by a machine or someone who knows what he is doing, not by wannabe welder

    Copeland R-410a scroll warranty failures and compressor reliability has been as good or better than R-22 based on my experience and mfg warranty stats.

    Any particular brand? Danfoss had nearly double Copeland warranty failures. Recips had nearly 4x as many warranty failures as scroll.

    Define Top Brand?

    What failed on the pump?

    Just had one of those real shiny 410a residential units go out after 11 years.
    Warranty states a new unit......

    Agree on what was cause of failure? Any comp can be killed or murdered.

    Officially, Down for the count

    Why is it that those who complain the most contribute the least?
